Christmas 2008

From Christmas Eve & Christmas Day Drive to Dekalb - Views of Winter

I can't believe how the Fall rapidly receded into Winter and how we now have had sub-zero weather and several winter storms. I have only had one flight canceled so far this season, but that was due to a mechanical incident and not weather. Will my luck hold? I can't even enumerate the places I've been. My United miles runneth over, though.

I need to post some pictures of our trip to London and Paris over Thanksgiving. We had fish & chips for Thanksgiving dinner and didn't really miss the turkey much! I cannot say enough about the Evensong service at Westminster Abbey. If in London, at 5PM most days, the choir sings the service and the seating is but a few feet away from where nearly all the Kings and Queens of England have been crowned. Sitting in an 800+ year old space, surrounded by the tombs of the greatest citizens of the Empire, listening to the choir sing in Latin is simply marvelous.

The holiday season has been busy. Click here for some pictures of the drive to Dekalb on Christmas Eve and Christmas Morn. It was nice to spend time with family and friends on both sides of the family. Click here for some Prairie and Iroquois River pictures.

Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy New Year!
