The Shortest, Darkest Day of the Year

It is the shortest, darkest day of the year and the sun barely peeked over the barn. Not only is this week a time for friends, family and worship, it also marks the anniversary of the day my friend Eugene very nearly became a casualty in the War on Christmas, all because he wished good will, peace and happiness to one of his fellow men. You can read about it here, in A Very Eugene Holiday Tale (now with less cussing!).

Best wishes to all, now and in the coming New Year, from everyone at Fish in a Barrel Pond. Bring on the longer days!

  4. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Quill! Horray for 2011! I’m ready to leave my 2010 behind!
    PS – sorry to do this to you, but I’ve relocated the blog to Took your advice and decided to give this WordPress thing a real shot. So far, I really like it and I have you to thank for it!

    Can’t wait to see what you’ll be posting this year! Take care!
