Happy Holidays, you lot

I’ve not much to say at the moment, except “Happy Holidays” to anyone who may be reading. It’s been not even a year since this blog appeared here at Occam’s Typewriter.

I’ll be heading out tomorrow to where my relatives live, to join the rest of the family who are already there. I’m allegedly cleaning the house and doing a few other associated chores, although it should be pretty obvious that what I’m really doing is writing a blog post.

I’ll leave you with a few photographs:

1. Beautiful downtown Toronto – the always popular skating rink at Nathan Phillips Square, in front of Old City Hall. Not long after sunset on my way to the train home.

2. A festive holiday (OK, “Christmas”) tree. Slightly let down by a distinct lack of snow.

3. A gentleman talking on the phone, silhouetted in front of some pretty decorations in one of the big bank buildings of Toronto’s financial district.On the phone - Christmas 2012

 

4. And last, some ornaments, as seen through an ancient camera.

And finally, my best wishes to all of you for an enjoyable holiday season, and a healthy, happy, safe and enjoyable 2013. Me? I’ll be writing another grant. The Perils Of The Season, indeed.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    (I’m also supposed to be cleaning the house etc., while Mr E Man does his Christmas shopping. I’m doing some chores, but interspersed with blogging and commenting. Hey, I’m on holiday!

    Happy holidays! Your photos always make me want to visit Toronto. At the moment, though, the weather is prompting a more southward yearning…

  5. Thanks all.

    Ken – winter storm on the way, apparently. I think your migratory instincts are good ones. :)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too! When I first looked at the first picture, I thought it was an illustrated postcard. What a lovely photo! They’re all really good, but I like that one best.

    All the best to you and the family in 2013.
