Here are some pictures of my house and neighbourhood, as we prepare for Christmas, 2000.

|Here's my concrete Pagoda, in the cedar hedge, with the Dec. 9th snowfall.|
|Here's my patio and cedar hedge, with the Dec. 9th snowfall.|
|Here's the front, with my favorite brother (Hey. I'm his only brother) helping me shovel. In the next 3 days, we got 40 more cm.|
|Some of my neighbours get all excited about decorating. You can't tell here, that around the front door are chaser lights.|
|Across the street. Behind the Santa, Mrs. Santa and geese(!) is a Nativity Scene.|
|Back in the house, tree and Nativity scene - currently the only furniture in the living room. That'll change.|
|Close-up of the Nativity Scene. Since when is a bag-piper traditional?|
|Christmas Day itself was spent with the Evans (+1) adoptive ex-Maritime family. That's:|
|Judy||Lynn||and Mel (the cook!)|
|Judy loves her bear...||Elmo the cat thinks the fountain is for him...||And I got a stocking with my name on it! (The final "e" is hidden, due to it being full of stuff!)|
|Loot. I mean, largess (TM Judy's Mom).|
|Lynn and Mel got me this. It disturbs even me. Note the ingredient list. Yes, it's a real dead cricket. I don't know when (if ever) I'll eat it.|
