Merry Christmas!

Here’s to a Merry Christmas to all of you, especially those working to keep the rest of us safe.

Somehow, I’ve managed to have the last couple of Christmas’s off and it’s been glorious.

I know firsthand what it’s like to work Christmas and other holidays, so I’m particularly thankful to my brothers and sisters in blue and in other emergency services/support agencies who are working today.


On a side note, we have been busy putting the final preparations on our family’s new addition.

Yes, we are getting another dog. Yes, you may call us crazy.

This has been in the works for over a year and it is FINALLY almost time to bring the little squirt home.


So far, her name is Noel (how appropriate, given the day!), but we may change it once she’s here. We’ve a plethora of names to pick from – we’ll wait and see which one suits her best.

She’s a Deutsch Kurzhaar (German ‘Registered’ Shorthair Pointer), and we’ve been waiting for her for a long time.

Noel on point

As you can tell from the above photo, certain dog breeds instinctually behave in certain ways – here, Noel is ‘pointing’ an upland bird feather just out of camera shot. Pretty cool, huh?

Now the only problem will be keeping Hondo from getting his nose bent out of shape when this little squirt gets preferential treatment for a few days on her arrival next week.
