We had a good night with some friends from back home. We traveled down after Vicki finished work and returned after the party. It was my kind of party, the food was good, the drink plentiful and the entertainment was in the old style where of if you had a talent you got up and used it to entertain. Unfortunately my talents are not such that I'm able to play or sing or tell jokes, I think the talent God gave me was a tolerance to listen to older people talk about their flu jabs and the last ten years weather stastics etc. and in that respect I was put to quite often. It was good to meet old friend and make some new ones. Below is a picture I took of three of the guys partaking in one of the many musical interludes.
I just have a couple more pics to show you from Christmas, Christmas Eve to be precise. This next picture is of Tom, you've all seen him with his happy smiling face well I show you this picture because its a different face, his serious face, this is Tommy's 'back off' face, his ears are down, his mouth close and has a staring eyes. This is the look he saves for you when he doesn't want to get off the bed or be left behind when you're going on a trip etc.
...and this is what he is telling everyone to keep away from.
In the blue bag nearest to him are all the doggy presents and as every dog owner knows you can't fool a dog by wrapping a present in paper. They know exactly which ones are chocs, biscuits or doggy treats. Well we brought this bag down and place it next to the tree before going to bed on Christmas Eve and Tom immediately went in to guard dog mode and wouldn't let anyone near it which I thought was quite funny and pretty smart too.
