And here's one more.

She's a 5 1/2 month old Rat Terrier Mix that we got from the Elmsford
Animal Shelter.

Getting in the spirit

I put the tree up ready for decorating today- and Crispy is getting in the holiday spirit! (And yes- he definitely needs a haircut, and he even agrees- we've just got to find time to get him to a barber)

...for a new tree.

Putting the lights on the new tree ready for lighting them @ the Advent Dinner tomorrow night.

Crispy's Room

While I was upstairs decorating the Parish Hall, Jackie & Crispy tackled his room.

The Parish Hall

All dressed for Christmas.

A bit subdued compared to some years past, but it seemed somehow appropriate to scale back and simplify a bit this year.

View from the skeet station. I got 22 out of 25, just like yesterday- not bad for the first time in 25-odd years! I guess I was well taught, Aunt Lou would be proud!


Frozen lake.


We've just had brunch part 1 and Jackie is off for a soak in the hot-tub while go for another round of shooting. The weather is cold but bright with very light snow falling. And the lake froze overnight.

Who is that masked woman?

Getting ready for our afternoon walk after lunch and before the bakery tour. It's cold out!




The Lobby on Saturday morning. We've just had breakfast (with extra breakfast), it's 22 degrees outside and we're getting ready for the day's activities.
