Merry Christmas to one and all

Although it is still Christmas Eve here in the great northwest USA, I know that some of you have already crossed over into Christmas Day. So I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas, full of proper models (ie, the 1:72 ones), good times with the family, and - most of all - some unfettered time to pursue this great hobby of ours. Sometimes I think that time is the most difficult item to get, and I'm already retired!

I'm also posting photos of the Three Stooges, our menagerie of animals. The one-eyed fawn pug is Tug. He damaged his eye badly somewhere in the backyard this summer, which necessitated the emergency surgery. He is 9.

The black pug is Kirby (named after Jack Kirby, for those of you that get the reference). We picked him up from a breeder in fall of 2017. He, like all puppies, has only two gears: berserk and comatose. He is not easy to get a photo of because he is constantly moving as well as his black coat makes him a light sink. He is 5 months old. 

The cat is Booker, who belongs to my daughter. He is a rescue. Shannon works as a vet assistant, and he was brought in after living in a WalMart parking lot for a few months. He is a completely indoor cat since we don't want him to relive that particular adventure. The vet estimates that he is 6 or 7 years old. 

And so, to all, a Merry Christmas!
