Legos!! Dec. 27/10


Kristian got a lot of Lego for Christmas!! Here he combines his Toy Story western set with Star Wars resulting in a kind of Firefly vibe.

I stopped by to deliver mail to his grandmother, the church treasurer, and got invited for brunch -- and Lego.

Christmas with Family: Dec. 26/10

After church, my Mum hosted Devha, Carl, Derek, Nomi, Sophia, Doug Jr., Bishop, Doug Sr. and me for a great dinner, exchange of prezzies, phone calls from the USA and "You've Got Mail".

Christmas with Mum: Dec. 25/10


Our family had our usual Christmas Eve dinner with Gayle W on the 23rd this year. My mother and I attended First Baptist's Christmas Eve service to hear/see Brian Dunn's virtual visit to Bethlehem. Later that evening I attended the service at St. Thomas'.

Saturday morning I attended the service at St. Luke's & was drafted into leading "For God Has Not Given Us a Spirit of Fear" complete with actions. Then the Suttons had a big gang over for lunch.

I spent the afternoon with my mother for supper and prezzies. I suppose I also spent part of Christmas naked in the sauna with Ken, the taxi driver. (No pictures.)

Yet More Carolling: Dec. 22/10

Will, of Cambrian Players, invited me to bring my books to the Cummings St. area where some of his friends were carolling and collecting goods for Shelter House. Kaela, also of Cambrian Players, (and Fearless Leader of the Dec. 4 Carolling Expedition) also joined in.

Winter Solstice Party: Dec. 21/10

Kathleen & Steve Murphy-Bobrowicz invited all and sundry to their house on the Winter Solstice for chili (etc.), sparklers, violin & bagpipe chanter music, arts & crafts, and witty conversation.

Then Kathleen, Kaela, Will and I walked over to Centennial Park to join some other friends for sliding -- what I used to call tobogganing, but there was not a toboggan to be seen that night.


Kathleen is very artsy & crafty.
