Merry Christmas!

[an Aussie posting Santa-style this morning at the beach]

It feels less awkward to have a Merry Christmas post up now that it will be Christmas in the States in a mere 45 minutes.

Merry, merry Christmas and happy holidays to you and yours – I hope it’s the best one yet!  And try not to overdo it on the eggnog this year.  I’m talking to you.
