we wish you a merry mish mosh here on Christmas Eve (in the western church) we'll get back to you for Russian Christmas next Saturday 🙂 it is exceedingly cold here, and I had to go out for bread. so much for shopping lists. as I passed by the meat market, I saw cubed ham that I wanted to get for my black-eyed peas, next week. of course, I forgot to get black eyed peas! so I came back to work on my collection of extra attractive lads and dads - my feature for today is Tony Lombardy, who is one of three models who could get me to abandon my pursuit of blondes 🙂 I hope you all take the selection as my little gift to you, and I welcome our newest clubmembers! I nearly forgot to mention a very pleasant call from @jfagrate for which I was most grateful!
