Family history can be very enlightening sometimes.

I went through some old photographs with my parents, whom I am currently visiting, and discovered that my small son is the spitting image of my uncle as he looked like sixty-five years ago. We'll have to tell him, especially since he never quite got over the fact that he and his wife remained childless.

Other than that, Christmas was a quiet affair and I appreciated the fact. I hope you're all well and half-way rested!

Christmas with family can be wonderful. And how cool is it that your son looks like his great-uncle? I love looking at the photos of my long-ago relatives, especially my mother's sister who died in a car accident before I was born. My niece looks so much like her, it's uncanny.

I just got back from a lovely party at my neighbor's. She had her 150 year old house done up and threw a bash to celebrate. (a downstairs bathroom - \o/) That was a great way to celebrate also.

The last few days were a bit eventful, which is why this reply is woefully late - sorry about that! And have a happy new year! That house sounds like something to be a bit envious about... :)

Oh, and I admired the photo of your thoroughbred (his name actually is Triple Ransom?). He's a beauty.

Thanks! Yes, he's the real Triple Ransom.
