Season’s Greetings!

Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings! I and everyone in my home wish you and yours the very best of this magical season, followed by a wonderful and prosperous New Year! Many religions celebrate this season; One does not have to be Christian to feel the warmth, peace, and good wishes that so many offer in this season of celebration.

I have been out of touch for several weeks now. First a cruise at Thanksgiving, then we rolled into the Christmas season. Somewhere in there, I had an equipment failure leading to an overdue upgrade in camera and lenses and then needed to replace Nancy’s laptop computer. In a week Nancy and I will take our annual pilgrimage to somewhere warm — this year, the Caribbean.

I am hoping to get photos from the Thanksgiving-time cruise posted soon. If I don’t make it before the upcoming trip, they will be posted when we return in January. And those will be followed by shots from Bonaire and Curacao. The current posting pause will probably continue for a couple more weeks. I’ll try to post again before we leave, but even if that fails I will be back in January.

Until then … Stay warm and please enjoy this special season!
