PRE-CHRISTMAS VISIT WITH FRIENDS 2010
I'm anxiously awaiting our friends Terrie and Richie who traditionally make a pre-Christmas trip up to Terrie's hometown of Santa Fe.................. To visit old friends.....................
And see the village.......................

And share a delicious lunch with more friends...............
This year, we chose La Fonda for it's authentic Santa Fe ambiance--and the tree............
And as it turned out--for the scrumptious food................
Three old classmates from the SFHS Class of '67 have plenty to catch up on................
And a good time was had by all!! (Yes, Dwightie was there, he just didn't get in many photos.)

TRAGIC NEWS FROM THE NORTH POLE.....
Now 'm wondering if GRANDMA really did get run over by a reindeer..............
VILLAGE SCENES--WINTER 2010
In Santa Fe, the Village is up and glowing...............
And outside, the town has a dusting of snow that gives it a Christmas Village appearance of it's own.................
wrapped in a mantle of white.................
The best thing to do in times of icy weather is to hunker down comfy cozy inside..............
Although Danny seems a bit snooty about his hunkering...........
While outside the wayfarers have "miles to go before they sleep"..............
Inside, one mighty panther is stalking another on the mantle............


Oh NOOO, Fluffy!......................................
The festive bows do their best to cheer this stark scene...................
While inside it's a Winter Wonderland of good cheer from our "village" to all of you gentle readers...................MERRY CHRISTMAS!
