It is fitting that this should be post #700 of my blog.
Even in my fourth year in Southern California I cannot get over how great the weather is. Here we are on the day of the Winter solstice – the skies are blue; the camellias are blooming; the mandarins are almost ripe; and the deciduous trees look like early Fall in other parts of the country. So for the fourth year running, I’ve designed a Christmas card with the image of palm trees.
Happy Holidays to all readers, but especially to those who call 2012 their year – the Year of the Dragon.
Our daughter cannot come home for the holidays. As an EMT with the FDNY, she has to work. So M. and I will take the week off and head for some remote location in the South Pacific. See you next year!
