My TWO WONDERFUL Hostesses - Joyce and Mimi!
|*Come on, Mimi, pose for Robin*!|
|Mimi says *You take too many photos - I want to go out for our walk - NOW*!|
Mimi ADORES tennis balls...she can play *fetch* for HOURS! (Really!) Here she is thinking...*Toss me that ball now*! This was one of her gifts - the green side of the ball says *Nice* and the red - *Naughty*!

Some of you might remember that when I visited in Summer, I came across a Woodpecker hard at work digging holes in his tree.... well, I decided to revisit him to see if he was still there.
At first, the tree looked barren and lonely... but as I was photographing it, imagine my surprise when a Woodpecker flew out of a deep hole in the centre of the tree... he was quickly followed by two more!
I was not fast enough to capture their emerging...it was so fantastic! They were all angry with me though, and flew up on a street lamp across from their tree - chattering at me!
Raindrops glistening like diamonds....

Of course, you know I am going to include a few Moon Photos......although La Bella Luna wasn't full until December 28th (when Marianne was visiting me - that will be my next post), I did manage a few photos.
|Christmas Eve - through the clouds|
|Clear and Mystical on Christmas Night....|
I had so much fun - I would have stayed a little longer - but - Marianne was en-route - so I dashed back to SF so we could celebrate! More to come....
I hope you ALL had a glorious holiday....filled with the warmth and joy of family and friends.
