My message with the Christmas Card read...
No movie this year, just a wee photo from Orkney. Just to say, it's been some year...from elite athletes, Bob Dylan, vikings, argumentative Quakers, more Gaelic music, marine energy and a global recession that touched everyone.
Our phasers are set to 'smile', we carry what we need and our caps are at a jaunty angle as we look forward to a new decade.Take care, enjoy yourselves and engage! Chris and Lesley
And back came this reply...
Hi Chris and Lesley,
I echo your sentiment!
And wish you great merriment
From athletes to the odd shuttler
At times I feel I'm a butler serving my customer
Times have been tough but very rewarding
Although I'm not that au fait with Bob Dylan's recordings
Although I will look out my vinyl and check out the Smiths
Amongst kin it will go some way to dispel that "miserable" myth
I don't wear a cap although I am in recession!
But I will join in on your jaunty procession
Onto the new decade and fresh challenges I'm sure
So good luck Merry Christmas to you and your's!
