Merry Christmas from Australia! We keep the tree miniature although it does have quite a formidable collection of ornaments.

Haydn and I depart for Queensland the night of the 23rd, so our presents have been opened and we ordered some Thai food. A quiet family Christmas before all the festivities begin.

We don't have windchills and huge drifts of snow, but we could have some traditional Queensland humidity and shark warnings.

Decking the halls...

Ralph, on the Blair Street beat

Originally uploaded by haydnfj
As I was walking up the street to meet a friend for a lift to work, trotting along towards me about 6 houses away from his residence, was my little neighbor dog Ralph. It had been drizzling out a bit earlier and ol' Ralphie was a bit wet and matted. He really is a great dog to have around to take a moment and say hello to.

And what do you know, when I got dropped off at home tonight, there he was on out the front of place just hangin' out and came over for a little pet.
