Hello December 2022

2 Dec 2022 – New Advent Calendar In The Making

Tue: Happy 16thBday to my grandson, JohnW who was born in SIN. Glad that he could revisit his birth-country earlier this year in Jul. To an amazing grandson who taught me that the Eastern-Box turtle only roams 1 mile its whole life and if it is removed from its area/home then for the rest of its life it will roam aimlessly stressed out…

Tkx to Linn for the share of his newly-born pix as the only one I am able to locate is from PatLynn&David’s wedding and it is not even sharp.

Helping out @CC and it is a wonder how light&portable Helinox are to wander around with or to leave them at home and they do not take much space in use or being stored. 

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost ― Tolkien

Wed: Christmas mail done and out on this last Nov2022 day. Here in SIN and only@CC will you find the most extensive selection of Chaco which have carried me millions of steps all over the world the past 30+yrs without problems and will be wearing them till I drop!

I like Cinderella, she has a good work ethic and she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end – hahaha

30Nov2022: WorldOmeter of COVID-19 deaths are as follow:

SIN/pop ~5.6+mil in an area of ~721km²  – 1,702
SC/USA/pop ~5+mil in an area of ~82, 932km²  – 18,707
Norway/pop ~5.3+mil in an area of ~365,268km²  – 4,325

Thu1Dec: out with Christmas decorations&AdventCalender, the one I have stitched in the 1980s and have so far used, inserted with the word Thank you in 24 languages, and its Greek Ευχαριστώ to start the season. Advent is the season before Christmas. In many branches of Christianity, Advent consists of the period starting 4Sundays before Christmas.

Putting together a new paper pop-up-village AdventCalender from IKEA this year so that 6small candies can be inserted into the houses with hopes&thoughts that some Christmas I can reunite with all 6grandchildren. Starting with Day1 today and will enhance with paint, small ornaments, etc as days go by.
