Seasons Greetings


I thought that when I retired that Christmas wouldn't sneak up on me as quickly as it had done before. I'm sorry to report that that has not been the case. One minute it is the 12th or 14th of December, the next it is the 24th.

Like most of you, I suspect, we will be having a quiet one. Visiting family on Christmas Day but apart from that keeping a low profile. An improvement from last year when it was just the two of us at home.I doubt I'll be able to repeat my two hour afternoon snooze.

My usual traditional Christmas cultural mish mash with an image from It's a Wonderful Life and songs from Darlene Love (who shares a birthday with me) from A Christmas Gift to You from Phil Spector.

All that remains is for me, on behalf of CCM, to wish you and yours as Merry a Christmas as you can.

  2. Sounds just like how our Christmas is going to pan out - The visiting family for dinner part, means no afternoon snooze though, AND we'll have to change out of our slack pants (unlike last year).

    Have a good one CC and Mrs CC - Cool person to share a birthday with. It wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of Darlene Love.

  3. Time flies - but I think that means you're having a good retirement...
    A very happy Christmas to you and Mrs CC!

  4. Compliments of the season Mr & Mrs CC!

  5. Wishing you & Mrs CC a very merry Christmas. Thanks for some superb posts and "finds" this year and double Darlene is an excellent way to step into Christmas. Look forward to rejoining you on the other side of the festivities!

  6. Happy Christmas to you and yours, CC, and thanks for taking us on so many of your trips to the charity shops this year.

  7. Merry Christmas CC and all the best for 2022.

  8. "Winter Wonderland" is every bit asd great as "White Christmas". It's Darlene. All the best!
