Oh Crap Is That The Date

…it’s the 21st of December and I haven’t yet posted pictures of this years Xmas album display…IMG_3314 IMG_3315 IMG_3316 IMG_3317


…it was my good friend Dee’s only “chore” when she gave me the afternoon off…and she did a damn fine job….

…this years Xmas record sales have equaled last years (3) and with a half promise on another, we may, for the fourth year running, be about to experience continued growing returns from this emerging market…

…speaking of “damn”… the figures for my nativity scene haven’t been as popular as I thought they would be…maybe I should stop referring to them as Xmas desecrations rather than Xmas decorations….

…(no photo of them as a group, sorry, but unlike the very well behaved cows and sheep, the my ass wouldn’t stay still for the shot)….

..(badum tisss)…

…and finally…a framed, needle point piccy from 1958, of a little dog I got from the dump as an Xmas pressies for myself….




…(yes, I have since taken the time to clean the seagull poo off of it)….

…jingle bells.

…. alll sale goods going on Trade Me (E-bays kiwi cousin) so don’t ask in store unless you want a reaction like the above.
