Casa de Canterbury Christmas – 2012

I’m dreaming of a Christmas…not a white one…just like the ones I used to love…thank goodness for the scrambled pictures I have – they match the scrambled memories of four years ago when everyone was present and accounted for…

Merry Ho, Ho, Ho! We had a rowdy gang that year and as Granny Selma used to say when she was in her right mind, that Christmas was a Memory Maker.

May any blues be replaced by red and green this week –

as we try to spread  hope with the words that we speak.
