HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Happy Holidays To All Dennis Bailey Followers and All That View This!

I'd like to be there in that house right now. It's Christmas Eve. The fire is blazing, a bottle of Pinot Bianco sits along side my lady and me ... and old Bo, my dog, there asleep on his Indo hand woven Dhurrie cotton throw rug. From out of the Bose player the soothing voices of Bing Crosby and Carol Richards can be heard singing Silver Bells in duet. Outside the temperature is minus 8 degrees the sky is clear and the air is still. The full moon glowing makes the winter landscape look as if it were daytime.
But inside it's warm and cozy. Old Bo is snoring .The wine is making me sleepy. She lays her head on my shoulder as we all slumber there by the fireside.

Beautiful, Dennis. I want to be in that house myself! I can picture it decorated so very magnificently, in the ways of a bygone era. I picture Grandma and Grandpa (not necessarily mine!) in socks and specs, a hot toddy being shared, old-fashioned homey kitchen and wonderful scents of Christmas and yummy backed goods. All is right with the world...
