merry X'mas!

St. Catharines, 2015.12.25

At grandma's in Saint Catharines for Christmas - probably for the last time, as she's planning to leave. I was completely unprepared this year, having been so flat out busy with studies, work, and "professional associations". The weather didn't help - it was the warmest Christmas Day on record anywhere in the country, if I understood the news correctly. We didn't need jackets!

But it was a fine time. And the kids are awash in gifts. We now have a classy lawn-bowling set, a quadcopter "Millennium Falcon", and a string of new playtime dresses in the household. In preparation for this year's ice fishing, Ken's also got snowshoes! Can't wait.

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
