Happy Festivus!...the festival for the rest of us. ;-)

Thanks, Mike! May the Fickle Finger of Fate bless you, and your family as well! Merry Christmas, sir!

Merry Christmas to you too Mike :-)

Merry Christmas Mike.

Dear Mike,

And, here, the Swag Tree ('cause, really, that's what they should be called) at Chez Ctein, for your delectation:

Happy Holidays and hope you're enjoying your first Christmas in your new home, Mike!

And to you.

Merry Christmas Mike!
Thanks to your good blogging, and direct reviews and indirect recommendations, today I've been given a new lens,* a newish camera, and a photo book (Early Color, by Saul Leitner, now in it's 5th printing!) And, I'm pretty sure you got affiliate credit for three of the four :) Best wishes all around.

*the new Panasonic 42.5/1.7, a swift and pretty little thing.

...and to yourself. Keep up the good work in 2016. With all I have to do, I usually make a practice of checking TOP first thing, and you rarely disappoint.

Thanks Mike, happy Holydays to you, your family and friends.

All the best to everyone in this festive season and beyond.
And big thanks to you Mike, for all you've given us. And that's a lot.

Merry Christmas to you and Butters.

Merry Christmas to all;

Best of the Season to you, also, Mike, and to all my fellow TOP readers.

Merry Christmas to you and yours Mike. Your first December in NY is a rather warm one. Here's an image from the last warm December in western NY. Note rain drops on the window. Taken with a 50mm f/1.4 Super Takumar BTW (8 element version).



Have a wonderful Christmas in your new Home.
May it be Happy, Peaceful, and Restorative.
Thank you for another wonderful year of TOP.

Happy hollydaze (late) and New Year (early).

Best to you and S for 2016

No need though for the ?default? blessings and God from my end

Merry Christmas from Singapore!!!

We ceased participating in the "feed the greed" game a while back, but will accept peace and quiet at anytime for any reason.

I wish that on all who want it, now & in the new year.
