Just discovered we are surrounded by tornado warnings. There is evidence of several tornadoes in surrounding counties and one has definitely touched down in Mobile to our south and caused some damage. Huge system moving in from Mississippi to our west. The weather map is lit up in green, red and yellow, but it’s not a festive sight. I hear the rumble of thunder in the distance. We may be evacuating the house for the farmhouse down below soon. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Just in time for the holidays, the nice people over at Muvee Reveal Technologies got the grinches out of their system and allowed me to upload the Retro video style pack to this computer (thank you so much, Patrick Bello, for your able assistance. I hope Santa was good to you). And then my Christmas angel allowed me to not only make a vid, but to upload it from home without a single hitch! So here’s another little Christmas treat for RA fans. It’s very tongue-in-cheek fun featuring our reluctant sex symbol himself. I hope you enjoy!
WARNING: This “Catwalk” styling does feature flashing lights, stars and other effects that may bother some people
It’s now past 12 here in Lower Alabama and Christmas morning has officially arrived. Alabama was the first state in the U.S. to make Christmas an official holiday. We have always loved our celebrations here–families gathering to feast from sideboards groaning from the number of dishes upon them, houses decked out festively, people decked out just as festively in their Christmas ties and appliqued cardigans. We like to do it up right!
Small town Christmas parades, folks getting out at night just to drive around and enjoy all those pretty lights . . . church pageants with children sporting tinsel halos and cardboard wings, bathrobes and yarn beards. Even if they fluff their lines, it doesn’t matter. They delight us.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed, happy, healthy, inspiring year to come. And Happy Hobbit-viewing to our friends Down Under as TH arrives in theatres for Boxing Day!
