The longest night

Happy New Year!

Last night we rode Santa's holiday train

The winter solstice this year occurs on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 at 04:49 UTC. At the moment, I'm in Portland Oregon so that means the solstice happens here today, the 21st, at 8:49 PM. For me, the winter solstice marks the end of the old year and the beginning of the new so .... wishing all a good new year.

Baby Chance wasn't so sure about Santa
but he liked the candy cane, his first.


The train wasn't going very fast. Cyclists were passing us on the bike path that follows the tracks but it was enough to make for a thrilling ride and shaky cam photos.

Off into the longest night

Happy new cycle to you, too.
Baby Chance is a survivor, and a man with a long white beard and a bright red suit raises a lot of flags.

Thanks. :)

And you're right. Chance is wise to be leery about such an odd fellow. This time of year, every time you turn around, there he is handing out candy canes. What's up with that?
