Running a Little Late

imageIt’s official. I just changed the title of my Christmas post notes in Evernote from “Christmas Post 2014” to “Christmas Post 2015.” I was working on a nice post, but you’ll have to take my word for that.

I wanted to have a Christmas post so I could wish you all a Merry Christmas. I guess I really don’t need to wrap a story around that, Merry Christmas! If you celebrate a different holiday, I hope it is / was / will be happy. If you prefer not to celebrate anything at this time of the year, I still hope you are enjoying yourself. I’m going to include a special “have a happy” to all of you who are celebrating your birthday during these hectic weeks.

Let me also take this time to thank you for reading No Facilities. Thanks for helping me on this writing journey with supportive comments, ideas, nudges, prompts and thank you for the great writing that you contribute to this community.

The picture at the top is the one bit of decorating I’ve completed this year (little tree, under the lamp, look again). The video below is my favorite holiday video.

I know it’s a commercial but I can’t watch this often enough.

About Dan Antion

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.

    I took a 2nd look at the photo to see the tree under the lamp😄
    That’s a nice video; I haven’t seen that commercial.

  8. What a cute commercial. I’ve had a meal at Eat n Park once. I don’t remember what I ate, but I know I liked the food and restaurant service.

    Glad you got that little tree done. :)

    Merry Christmas to you and the family!

      Thanks. The little tree makes a nice statement. I will really like it when we have an ice storm at about the point where they have to come down. We only get to Eat’n Park when we visit Pittsburgh.

      Thanks Evelyne. I usually don’t worry when people miss things. I know that everyone is busy, especially at this time of year. Also, I know not everything appeals to everyone. I hope to keep this going in 2015.
