When it snows, the way the snow sits on top and "makes shoulders" around the neck always reminds me of Queen Victoria.

Today one of them makes me think of Louis XIV (except white hair/wig obviously). Or is it Brian May?
Today it's Francesco Caroli but with a green face instead of a white one.

No idea what Scrooge had to complain about. He never had to listen to Mariah Carey.

Might go to Kelowna tomorrow, pending weather.

Oh and light snow falling tonight, not sticking at the moment.

We just put our tree up today. On NYD it will go down.

I work at shoppers. Each time I hear "Last christmas" the rage builds up a little more, lol.

Given the time again I would not be flippant.
Flippancy can be dodgy.

Years ago, on vacation with a bunch of mates, and while making dinner, one of the girls said: "anything I can do to help?".

In true Fawlty Towers mode, I responded: "yes; kill yourself."

Then I remembered, slightly too late, that her father had topped himself a couple of years earlier...........

So the xmas music at work got you in the mood then

We don't usually put our tree up until mid December but we're trying it in a different place this year (so we can see it instead of passers by seeing it through the window) and I'm a bit keen to see what it's like, so maybe in a day or two.

My 16 year old son works in a supermarket part time and he doesn't think they play christmas music..or he hasn't heard it and he doesn't like much christmas music anyway..other than Fairytale of New York and Happy Xmas (war is over).

He did tell me that they played the 'border security' song quite loudly a few days ago....he knew it as that, I knew it as an 80's Eurythmics song.

Went to Kelowna today, spent half hour there, then back home. Nice drive though, so much nice snow on the mountains, mostly clear skies, and some chilly temps on the mountain highway....

No snow luckily on the highways so an easy drive.
