  1. Beautiful photo. Merry Christmas.

    Thanks for the compliment, Don. And a Merry Christmas to you, too.

  2. Beautiful photo. We’ve had a frontal passage and are sitting at 45 degrees with a 30 kt wind. Seasonal weather, for sure.

    Three things I’ve learned so far this Christmas Day: herding squirrels is harder than herding cats, “When Kitchen Appliances Go Bad” might be a pretty good movie, and an HD fireplace burning full-screen on a computer monitor can mesmerize even the computer-scrooges of the world – especially if you crank up the volume so it snaps and crackles really nicely.

    Hope you’re having as much fun as I am!

    I was hoping we’d have a sunrise worth capturing this morning. Yesterday, the 24th was a great one but I didn’t want to fudge on things so I made sure I got up early this morning. At first it seemed that it might be disappointing but it turned out fine.

    I remember some of those “blue northers” that used to come barreling through Louisiana this time of year. I spent my first winter there out in Breton Sound on a 47′ crew boat putting guys on and off of high-pressure gas wells for 12 hours a day in 8′ to 10′ slop and it sure wasn’t any fun. But as Bob Dylan says, “that’s one too many mornings and a thousand miles behind.”

  3. Hi Richard:

    Gorgeous photograph. No wonder you enjoy Potrerillos so much. Wonderful climate and spectacular scenery. You’ve got it made. Merry Christmas!



    Haven’t “got it made,” Omar, but I’m working on it.
