    This time of year I am singing Christmas songs and songs about snow. "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones I used to know" sounds great and nostalgic and scenic and ..................

    where I live in Arkansas, we rarely have white Christmases.

    When I was a child, I loved to play in the snow. Now that I am older (no jokes about my age, please!) I do not mind not having a white Christmas. If we get snow, it is usually gone in a day or two. We have the rare winter with a foot or two of snow, but usually we only get snow after Christmas.

    But I admit that I love snow. Pictures of snow. Songs about snow. Pictures of individual snow flakes.

    I found an article online with pictures of snow flakes taken by Alexey Kljatov, a Russian photographer. He made his own camera to take the following pictures:

    These photographs are absolutely mind-boggling. I am always amazed at the things people do when they are passionate about what they love doing.

    I love rubber duckies. Seriously, they are so cute. I could easily buy them by the dozen. Except if I do that, I would use up all the money I use to buy rubies to play TPC! Hahahaaaa. Shhhhh, don't tell my guild leader that I spend real money on the game. He keeps telling me not to, but, hey it is my entertainment money and I spend it as I want to.

    Anyway, back to rubber duckies.

    My evil twin sister likes this one. She does all the bad stuff, and tries to pretend it was me.

    I love Christmas socks.

    Actually, I love crazy socks, the wilder the better. Mismatched socks, socks that I am sure no one else would wear, socks with tacos or rainbows or unicorns or stripes, snowflakes or polka dots!

    They are one of life's little pleasures. Because even under jeans, when no one else sees them, I know I am wearing them and they make me smile. It is my little secret.

    And none of you will tell, right?

    PS - sorry, I did not realize the pictures were upside down until I looked at the post after I posted it. Oh, well, I said I love socks. I never said I was any good at posting pictures on the forum.

    Brilliant SC, I also love socks, but when I look down they are upside down, maybe, upside down is really right side up!
