Old Friends they shine like diamonds
Old Friends you can always call
Old Friends Lord you can’t buy ’em
You know it’s Old Friends after all
We met over dinner with old friends, we usually have had a tradition, that my girl friend for 40 years has hosted a pre Christmas party to a certain group of friends – four couples in December at her house. This year that tradition has broken due to this odd year. This year is we decided to have celebrate friendship and Christmas with a dinner with them in a nice restaurant just the four of us. No hugging, greeting smiles from distance and sitting across the dinner table. All good and safe. Delicious meal. For a starter I had flambeed snails (anise liqueur), Duck leg Confit for entree and for dessert Chocolate cake and beetroot sorbet.
I will be posting new and old photos somehow related to winter, Christmas and eventually anticipation of new year. My aim is to take one new photo a day, but not going to stress over it, if I don’t come up with anything.

First-time commenter. I think Janet sent me here. Beautiful images – and through your words, I sensed your appreciation for the winter solstice.
Hi Frank, thanks for stopping by and you comment, I thank Janet too 🙂 yes very much waiting for the winter solstice, this darkness is sucking the life out of me. Not long anymore.
Hang in there …. the tide will turn soon.

What a delicious meal! I have had a frustrating day, and sadly didn’t get out into the beautiful sunshine….and tomorrow is rain. Anyway, here’s a quick snatched image: https://suejudd.com/2020/12/17/countdown-to-2021-15/
Sue, sorry about your day, hopefully nothing major?
No, just things to do that take me time and effort these days, sadly
can I ask what you have causing these problems? Or is it too personal?
Multiple Sclerosis, and alas it is steadily giving me more challenges
i am sorry to hear that Sue ❤
I know, we all have our own ailments, but still. You have the right attitude for sure, it is life, it is what it is.
Many people tell me I am the most positive person they know, and that is encouraging for me! But I’m not feeling positive this afternoon because we will be moved into a different Covid tier tomorrow, and I shan’t be seeing my Sunday lunch companion for a long time…..
Sue 😦 that is sad. You take care and stay positive even if its hard. it is one of the best cures.
