Merry Christmas


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Tarpon Springs, Florida

Ok, I'm officially on Christmas break for at least a week starting now. I'll take my leave from Flickr a few days from now.

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it. I will leave you with a few songs.

Bing Crosby - Christmas in Killarney

Brian Setzer Orchestra - The Nutcracker Suite

Ella Fitzgerald - Frosty the Snowman

Judy Garland - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Squirrel Nut Zippers - Sleigh Ride

How could I have forgotten this one?
Vincent Guaraldi Trio - Linus & Lucy

Have a good holiday, Dane! Thanks for the Christmas in Killarney, btw. I haven't heard that since my parents died.

Have a very merry Christmas, Dane! Enjoy the well-deserved break, and have a safe and happy time in Florida.

Oh, and you got in just under the wire with the obligatory Vincent Guaraldi...nicely done. :)

Have a lovely Christmas. Looking forward to more inspiring photos.

Dane said...

Todd: Merry Christmas and best wishes. I hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Glad I could help, Sheherazade. :)

Greg: You too! All the best, my friend.

And about the Guaraldi, I *do* try to be mindful of all state and local Holiday Regulations. :)

Steve: Doubt I'll find time for pictures, but a happy holiday is definitely on the schedule! :)

Thanks, Floyd, you too!

Major: Thank you very kindly, sir! And you have a lovely one too.

Dane, I hope I'm not too late - thanks ever so for the greeting and I really hope you have a great Christmas too...your lovely pictures have brightened my dark autumn/winter big time: here's to next year! x

Dane said...

You are not too late! You are very sweet to say such kind things, and I really enjoy your blog/voice too.

Have a wonderful Christmas, Davy.

Disclaimer:

Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
