  1. Hello Caroline:
    These are very busy times and we can well imagine that you have much to do. We shall look forward to your posts in the New Year, but in the meantime we wish you and your family a peaceful and very happy Christmas.

  2. Have a wonderful Christmas - love the photo of Harry 'The Leopard' (he would fit right in to our house with our two cats who redefine the statistic of the amount of time that cats sleep during the day!)

    Merry Christmas to you and all your family and friends and I wish you a healthy and prosperous 2012.

    Maine and Oregon with BERRIRO and you got yourselves OSIRIS- HYDRA- PETWOOD?
    EDWARD MEESE...he gave those books and signatures so we are shocked that your rings aren't up to date on the rats and the flippers.
    BILL CLINTON is giving it on WHINNYHILL for " chrissakes"...and it's all about FREAKSB and DATIL.
    Some of the code words are TOCCIA- CHIPSYMN- BARDUM- EMILE- APHIZE-
