Christmas Lock-in?

Stormy here last night. This morning we find that a tree has blown down, and the only road to the outside world is now blocked. Since we don't expect too many people to be available for work on the farm this morning, I guess that's it for Christmas visitors for a day or so.

Fortunately, there is no sign of any stout chap in a red suit trapped underneath it. Oh well - we have turkey and plenty of logs for the stove - as long as the brandy lasts out. Merry Christmas!


  1. Well looks like a few more logs for the fire!

    1. Yes indeed - just the brandy on the shopping list, then. Cheers, Ray - good New Year to you.

  2. That's one way to keep uninvited visitors st bay. Glad to hearr the essentials of good cheer are on hand. Merry Christmas to you and your family .

  3. Sounds like you have it covered - internal and external heat and a few calories to keep you going - seasons greetings!
