Yesterday our local paper called and told me I won the annual Christmas Story Contest. A photographer came out to take my picture for the paper. This was quite an accomplishment on his part because I'd rather have a tonsilectomy than get my picture taken. But.....I was gracious and didn't put up much resistance. He left and then called me back later and said when he got back to the office there was nothing on his camera. No pictures. I started to tell him that I had a serious medical condition that somehow interferes with digital cameras thereby rendering me unable to be photographed or I could have just told him I'm a vampire but then I wouldn't be able to explain being out in daylight so I behaved and he came back and took it again. This time with a different camera.
As part of our hospital's annual Christmas fal-de-ra we have a door decorating contest. This year's theme was "A Country Christmas" and here are a few of this year's entries.
