Its here. Christmas Day. Last night we went to the carol service at Stromness Baptist Church. Today we are cooking and hanging out and seeing friends. I am cooking a wicked free range Goose that grew up just over the hill from us. Stuffed with a chestnut/cranberry/bacon/mushroom stuffing and awaiting a 2001 Babich Pinot Noir – from the same vineyard in New Zealand that my dad used to buy his flagons of Golden Sherry from. Nice to have a touch of home on Christmas.
– Big present this year was a Tanglewood Rebel bass guitar and Marshall amp for kids who all want to learn to play bass. Got it used but really good condition.
– Called my Mum – she is well and the sisters in Australia all had a good Christmas with their families. We miss our families back home -in USA and Australia. But thats the price we pay for our adventure with God.
Anyway, have a good Christmas everyone.
