Wishing you all a very Merry, Merry Christmas!

These folks seem to have a thing for the Nutcracker! Is Santa having trouble getting up, or down?

Taking a closer look, he seems to be ignoring the stepladder set out for his use!

Santa (Jim) has been visiting this family for a long time. Santa brought gifts to the Mother of this home when she was a little girl! Like Santa said, “That was a long time ago.” He said he can’t afford to visit all the children of the children of the first family he visited, but he visits at least this family and one other one, because he kind of took a liking to them. The same has happened to me. Maybe biased, since the children say I am their favorite taxi driver!

Mom and Me

Christmas Day!

Tasty Dhal

A nice tasty dish we enjoyed on Christmas Eve Day. It was prepared by our daughter-in-law, who is an expert at preparing Bengali cuisine!!

A Bangladeshi Feast

A Bangladeshi feast on Christmas Eve Day— Pilau, Elk Nehari, Chicken Korai, Dhal, Bhaji and Laccha Shemai. (Elk is not a traditional Bangladeshi meat. This meal was prepared by our son, and his wife! It was delicious, as always!

Hope it is a festive joyous occasion for you all. If not I pray, you will be surrounded by friends and/or family who can show you comfort, and compassion, with whatever you are going through!

My friend , and favorite singer John M Schmid, bringing joy and hope during this season. The setting was at the “Legends of Music Barn,” near Millersburg, Ohio, my home town!

It’s December!

In fact this the second day of December, 201″Pebbles” product ornaments. My son imports these from Bangladesh for his company, Kahiniwalla. They are “cute as a button.”
