Small World: Dec. 28/15

My Neighbours' Tent: Dec. 26/15

.

They've had this up a couple of months now. I believe it is a genuine prospector tent, as they do work from time to time for mining companies. I'm not sure if they sleep in it, but they do heat it, and I hear music coming from it at times.

December 25/15

.

Mum and I attended St. Luke's Anglican service & then went to the drop-in lunch at Suttons'.

Then I had a sauna, a nap, a small supper & prezzies at Mum's.

Christmas Souvenirs

.

The Yellow Submarine ornament is from my brother, and hung on the tiny tree from my childhood.

I bought the olive wood Nativity scene Feb. 11, 2000 in Bethlehem.

I think I was c. 18 when my father played Santa for the Rotary Club Christmas Party. I came along as Relf the Elf, and gave out these homemade buttons to all.

Carolling at Pioneer Ridge: Dec. 13/15

A group of family and friends of "Ben W." sang to residents of Pioneer Ridge Plaza Two, and then in the main lobby (pictured).

I think John and I in the photo above are playing "Early on One Christmas Morn" as recorded by Bruce Cockburn.

Directing Workshop: Dec. 5/15

.

Though I don't have any plans to direct in the near future, I still thought it would be useful and interesting to attend this workshop presented by the 10x10 Play Festival. It was (despite my expression in the first photo).
