My first Christmas morning taxi customer, as we were passing this eagle, wondered if I had ever seen it! I said no, pressed the red button for my hazard lights, and backed down the road, till I could get a good view of the bald eagle. I got out and grabbed a quick shot before going down the road. A nice gift by a thoughtful passenger, and we still arrived at our first destination two minutes ahead of schedule! In the coming year, let’s be alert to times when we can give gifts to others, even in simple ways, such as pointing out this regal bird to an avid bird photographer! Happy Holidays

My 95-year-old mother is stretching out the anticipation as she marvels at the wrapping paper on her gifts. I told her if she doesn’t hurry up, it will be Christmas till she gets the gifts opened! Of course it was Christmas! She had so much fun, as we also did, watching her excitement!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all our friends, whether virtual or otherwise! Trusting it will be a time of joy, hope and peace as many of you will be surrounded by family and loved ones.

Mixed feelings for us with funerals this week for a cousin, and a cousin’s husband. Christmas to remind us of the greatest gift of all, When God sent us his Son!!! The week will culminate with the wedding of a good friend! So may God give comfort to those that need comforting this season!

Thoughtful Gift

A counted-cross-stitch with the date of our marriage hangs gracefully in our bedroom!! Our 50th anniversary is 6 months away, so the gift was in plenty of time to exhibit at that time! A big thank you to the friend who crafted this “Labor of Love!”

A game sometimes called “Aggravation!”

I also smiled when my friend bought me an “L” lens!Tourists

Alice is reading “Bush Flying Captured”  (Photography of Rich Hulina), a gift that was given to my friend by his children.  It was a pleasure to see in the book a photo of the plane I used to fly in NW Ontario. I am not sure if I was a bush pilot or a pilot who flew in the bush!  🙂
