Tom, this is a wonderful collection of ghosts! I understand why you love island life so much. Vashon is a marvelous place. Unfortunately, I’m an off islander but I’ve the privalege of knowing some great folks who arent. It was nice meeting you in Oz the other night.

Eileen here’s to more friendly exchanges and delicious foods and bulldog worship. I suspect you’re having a seriously white Christmas.
My best to you and your beautiful family.

Very happy Christmas Tom, I hope you have a lovely Christmas, and a very happy and prosperous New Year.
And I still hope to steal the lights on the road idea…

And a Happy Christmas to you Janet. I suspect in New Zealand, Christmas dinner may be followed by a sunny outing to the beach. Makes me a wee bit jealous. And as for the luminaries, spread the beauty!
