Festive: Ailsa’S Travel Theme…

Travel on a day like today? No… if you’ve not noticed yet… my post for the day is only about 12 hours later than usual. Festive? You got to be joking… weren’t we all supposed to be away by now? Ploop… splotter… destruction… transportation… rude awakening?

hristmas tree at the National School  on Pearse Street, Dublin, IrelandImagine my dismay at the thought of wasting my time doing a post on the day the earth was to be obliterated… what a waste of time that would have been… typing away when no one was even bothering to visit my site… all too busy finishing off their last-minute departure plans… like going out in style… dressed for the occasion… or as many would prefer… fully undressed for the rude awakening… wha… ha haa…

Santi Train, Dublin Ireland Christmas 2012No, you’ve got to be joking… on this, the shortest day of the year I simply couldn’t bother to do a post. Why worry, before the sun was much higher than two foot above the horizon it would disappear again… sucked further south… to throw a warming glow on those kind folk living below the equator. No white Christmas for them…

2012 Christmas tree on O'Connell Street < Dublin Ireland... the Spire in the backgroundActually, I tell more porkies… of course I was going to do a post… I was waiting for Ailsa’s weekly challenge… why not? I was expecting something cheerful… so, here you have a few of my not so good, not so bright photos. Ailsa should recognise a few…

Kilcock Santi, Christmas 2012Santi on the wall in Kilcock was quite a challenge without a tripod… well, they all were. So… think of it this way, next week this time when Ailsa places the next challenge Christmas will be well past… have fun until then, don’t do what I wouldn’t! 😉

    Did they give a time of when the world was supposed to end ? I wonder if there will be a lot of “what were you doing when the world didn’t end” type of memories. 🙂

      Indeed… it was supposed to end at 11 past 11… but nobody was quite sure by which or who’s clock… strange but true.

      We have a young lady in the office who is a ‘believer’… needless to say, she got quite a slagging from a few of us… me being number one. All good natured I may add. That’s when I coined the rude awakening bit… asking her when the ‘transformation’ or whatever doesn’t happen what will she do then… blah, blah, blah….

      Anyway… we’re still here and now I’m waiting to see if her other prediction may come true… she kindly suggester 2013 will be the year that I earn a living by being a writer… I’m hoping… 😉

    Hand held at night you did good. Thanks for sharing these light shows. I haven’t gotten out to see any.

    And now that the world didn’t end, get back to posting like normal. 😉

    Happy Holidays! Enjoy the braai.

      Thanks!! Yep, I’ll try my best… and, you spotted something, I’ve been busy most of today building a new drum (barrel) braai… we’ll have a great new gadget by Christmas day… well, I hope… 😉


I value your 'likes' and comments, even though I don't always reciprocate, I care. Thanks for making the effort! God Bless!!
