Merry Christmas From Friends ; )

How bout this, virtual Christmas presents!  Thanks Brent and Suzan, you've brought new meaning to a picture is worth a "THOUSAND WORDS".  A good laugh is worth much more!  I'm sure it goes unsaid to enjoy the orange slices, but don't ride the bike to hard or stretch the sweater.  We will be coming home some day. 

Thank you and MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family.  Love you!

Regina's "B"day

Our friend Regina shares a birthday with Bart and Joseph Smith.  We were invited to her party, it was so fun.  She had many friends and family to wish her Happy Birthday.  There was music, delicious food, and wonderful conversation.

"A Quick Ride Through New York"

Bart and I were running late to meet Rich and Jeanne.  There was no taxis to be had, so we opted for Dwight and his bike-ricksha.  I've never laughed so hard, at one point he stopped to make sure he wasn't scaring us.  But it was just the opposite, it was a riot and we arrived promptly.  After the show, we called him for a return ride.

Christmas in New York

Rich and Jeanne came to meet us in NYC.  It was so fun and great to see them.  
I just didn't want to say goodbye.  Rich got tickets to the Rockettes Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall.   It was spectacular!  
Especially their presentation of the Saviors birth.  
It was so festive, it felt like Christmas!  Thanks Rich and Jeanne for coming :0

"Christmas Trees"

Brrrrrrrrr! NYC

Nice and Comfy Bermuda ; )
We are missing having a Christmas tree this year.  But it has been fun watching as others find the perfect tree.  It seems pretty much the same everywhere.  As you can see all come shipped in and found at Christmas lots, some a bit colder than others.  Téa said they had found their special tree.  Maybe some of you could send us pictures of your precious Christmas trees.  We would LOVE IT!

Braggin the BROTHER

I have a favorite brother and can he fish.  Wow! 
He's promised me a trout dinner when we get home.  Love you Rich!

HIgh Winds

Grandma Edie has had this beautiful tree for 40 years and last week record winds came through and very quickly toppled it.  Kinda sad!

Bermuda Bikers

We see all types and sizes of bikers, some carrying unusual items. Here are just a few.

Bermuda Foilage

How about this, a pomegranate bush!

Riding With The Websters

We love when we have a crowd to deliver home.  We squished to make room for the Elders.

As you can see they were giving pumpkins away.  Dad and I went on the search for the perfect one.  It was fun, we saw little families snooping for that one special pumpkin........but alas the patch was empty!  All picked over, none the less a great adventure with my sweetheart!!!!

Morning Walk

We went for our walk this morning, it was pretty early and the moon was still up.  Doesn't it look as bright as the sun coming up?  Kinda fun to walk in the moonlight for a bit, til the big boy sun came out to play.

"A Time to Harvest"

I love fall, the air is cool and crisp, the leaves are changing, and the sweet smell of dirt as potatoes are being dug.  It seems like there is a buzz in the air of business and a bit of urgency to get those babies to bed! As you all know we are not there this year, so I dug out a few pictures from last year to help ease the pangs of missing our beloved harvest.  This will be the first we've missed in 37 years, it feels kinda weird, especially to see my cute farmer spiffed up all the time (without the farm garb).  New pictures are coming, but not for a few weeks, the guys are pretty busy...David is doing a great job and we appreciate him.

"The Cabin"

For those of you who are enjoying cabins at this time in your life; I thought that you may enjoy seeing the cabin that we spied the other day on the way home = ) .   Cabins are great retreats for family and friends to enjoy happy times.  Enjoy this weekend with our family!  We love you all!

Pretty and Pink

We were on our way back from St Georges the other morning, when we came around the bend and saw this priceless picture.  The great contrast was just cool! ENJOY!

A Cactus Blooms

Here we are in a tropical setting with jungle foliage growing so veraciously that men with machetes are constantly trimming the roads. What do we find but a "BLOOMING CACTUS".  Pretty cool!
I took this shot right out our front door, the moon was gorgeous.  
It looks quite surreal, don't you think.
Sorry to do this, but this pictures so beautiful it had to go on the blog.  Bermuda has some picturesque beaches, the sand is so fine and a bit different in places.  It is always an awe moment when we drive the shores.  Wish you were here!  ;~)

Poise and GRACE

It doesn't get anymore GRACEful than this!  
It made us miss Labor Day in the mountains.

Going BANANAS in Bermuda

Driving down the road looking for a member the other day, we saw these bananas.  
Isn't that fun to have bananas right at your finger tips!

Thinking of David & Benjamin

Whenever we see cyclists around the island I think of David and Benjamin and how they enjoy riding.  There was a race in Hamilton last Sunday and we happened to be picking a member up at the bus stop to take to church.  So I had to snap this shot.  They are having fun!

In Away!

In away isn't this a quaint name for a cottage.  
It is surrounded by deep green foliage with a welcoming gate at the entry.

Beautiful Clouds

Up early one morning and storm clouds were passing by.  Aren't the formations beautiful! Make sure and double click the picture to get a better perspective.

Bermuda Dress

Most folks here dress very nice, you might say very traditional.  We have wanted to get a picture of the business dress here.  It is fun and very sharp.  In trying to be discreet, I snapped this picture of two business professionals.  The best I could do was a back shot and a not so good side picture.
