2012 Christmas Cheer in a Pipe Club of London POTY 2015 - a Northern Briars Premier Rox Cut slightly bent Dublin with a brindle stem and an engraved silver band. In fact, it's the pipe in my avatar.
Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever. Even though you grew up and found you could never quite bring back the magic feeling of this night, the melody would stay in your heart always - a song for all the years. ― Bess Streeter Aldrich, Song of Years

GLP Westminster in a Johs blast slightly bent diplomat, after Handles Messiah on radio, church service with carols and candles, and last gift wrapping; salmon for supper after an old Italian tradition of fish on Christmas eve though neither of us are Italian, and roast duck tomorrow; apricot liquor and port with salmon.
