You too, GGO, and to everyone celebrating the holiday season!

Love that pic too, Nambu doesn't look very impressed, does he :D

I 'shopped the original pic a bit to make him look more pissed off than just stern, and tried to make it look like he was focussed on the little fur tuft at the end of the hat.

Because I'm evil, that's why.

Love 'em, GGO!

Thought I'd share this with you all -- somehow I wouldn't mind Liam Neeson as a mall Santa!

Too funny, EW :)

There are no Condors native to Australia (there are some living at Taronga Zoo, but that's another story) so the closest thing I can get is either a Wedge Tailed Eagle or a Kite, both of which carry out similar functions in the ecosystem to Condors (ie: carrion birds.)

Kris the Kite has the Condor Glare down pat, but he's about as dangerous as a packet of marshmallows... if marshmallows had pointy black scimitar talons and a bad attitude.

Its Christmas Eve. Kids santa sacks are out ready... I've joined a heap of mad campers at Forster NSW on coast for Christmas with my family.

Today starte out with biting sun at 8am in the morning roasting on the beach at mid morning to an afternoon of thunderstorms and lots of electricity in the skies pouring rain and scrambling to get everything up out of forming puddles. Welcome to an Australian Christmas how many Aussies spend it. Tomorrow on camping sites are kids with new beach gear and informal meals.

We're doing the Aussie big brekky. Eggs, bacon, sausages, myshrooms, toast, pancakes all on the BBQ...

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!! I'm off to the beach on Christmas day...

My DH has been roped into a Boxing Day Camp cricket match. Australia vs India. 4x4 teams. There are a group of young Indian male campers eager to take down tye Aussies. Should be an interesting game.

It's after midnight, so technically it's Christmas Day in my neck of the woods!

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate it. 

Whatever you celebrate at this time of year, I wish you joy and time spent with loved ones and countless blessings.

Now I should get to bed before Santa comes!  ;)

And in Greek, Χρόνια Πολλά (pronounced hronia polla, many happy returns!

All the best to all of you!
