A true Hodgepodge.

For our office Christmas card this year, we decided a photo of the three of us would be a nice personal touch. Jesus, trying to get three women to like how they look in one photo took conservatively 30 shots! After one particularly hopeful (yet ultimately disappointing) round this was all we could see!

Talking of illusions, I shall call this shot 'giantess and lilliputian man'.

And while we're at it, here's an enormous head looking slightly like Noel Fielding.

Sundays are fun days at the beach. Camps are set up early with varying numbers of tents, coolers, beach chairs, toys, dogs and kids all playing in the sun. This is an especially large toy but trust me, everyone who rode in it had a smile on their face.

These two spent hours trying to balance on a board that was marginally too small for the job.

I've lived next to the same neighbors for 19 years and never once have I seen them move their boat from it's dry dock. Herbie (the owner) used to climb in and turn the engine on letting it tick over for an hour or so, but even that masculine activity has ceased. I've often wondered why they don't sell it, but as I looked out over my deck the other day I thought I might actually miss the old girl if they did. Go figure.

Mean while inside my house, one thing I'd never miss is the sight of my dirty, smelly recyclable containers. Sometimes I leave them on the counter so long that in an rash act of pure planet destroying laziness, I throw them away! Oh the guilt...

It's Thanksgiving and one of the bazillion things I'm thankful for, is that I'm motivated and heathy to play both on the ocean and off. Enjoy your turkey lurkey people and if you can't be with the ones you love, love the ones your with.

No doubt your visit to the British Isles was super, but it is always nice to come home. For sure your sweet mum enjoyed having you.

I have just stumbled away from the dinner table filled to bursting with turkey, stuffing, etc., etc., and will recover a bit in fromt of a football game until Sue brings out the home made pumpkin pie. Happy Thanksgiving!

How can you show sunshine pictures (apart from your luncheon dregs) when we are suffering heavy snowfall IN NOVEMBER?????!!!!!
No wonder you have such a positive outlook on life - the dark, damp days in England don't exactly make one smile!
However, thank heavens for the joys of blogland where at least I can look at pictures that warm the cockles of my heart :-)
TG if you eat all that on Thanksgiving Day do you start all over again on 25 December? What's Sue doing whilst you recover, doing the washing up I suppose?

Checked out your Christmas card and I'm guessing you're the one on the right! I think the Paley lines may have given the game away.

TG: About to tuck into turkey leftovers which I pilfered upon departure from my soiree yesterday......hmmm no pie though, drat.

SMA: Yikes ma, better double sock for the chilly evenings and yes, that's me on the right.
