At Christmas time, like Thanksgiving, I like to thank those who contribute to making Bits & Pieces what it is. From the people who regularly contribute items, like Mike Firesmith, Mike (from Spain), Rich, Ron, M C W, That Gene Guy, DJ, Bella, Grumpy, Krisgo, Grace, Jacques, Tommy, Miss Silver, Dawn, Janet, Dave and Deadeye …(I know I’ve missed many)… to those who occasionally send items, B&P wouldn’t be the place it is without you. And to all my fellow bloggers who for the most part are happy to share their finds with us.
I’m so glad I have gotten to meet many of you at various places around the country in the last decade. What a great group of people we have collected here in our little world-wide neighborhood.
But the most important part is you, the reader… you’re the reason this is here. Whether you’re a regular commenter or just a browser I’m glad you’re here. Some of you might be new here and some have been coming around for years and years. I thank you for your friendship, your comments, opinions and your criticisms, especially when they’re expressed civilly in our online discussions. Many times they’ve opened my eyes to a different way of thinking about a topic and every now and then they confirm someone’s complete insanity.
We’re all humans and none of us is perfect nor are we always right. We just have different opinions. The fact that most of the time we can discuss our differences in a respectful way speaks volumes and I appreciate that.
Christmas is a time for friends and family. The older I get the more important that becomes. Thank you my friends!
Regardless of your religious, political or spiritual beliefs, I hope each of you have a great holiday.
Photo: As usual I was running late on getting Christmas cards made. We had taken some pictures of Gus and Trixie a couple weeks before Christmas but couldn’t get them both to pose at the same time. Gus would sit wherever you placed him but Trixie wanted no part of that. The deadline to get them mailed for Christmas delivery was Thursday of this week, so, on Wednesday I hurriedly took parts of two pictures and shopped them together, blurred out the background and created our family Christmas card.
