SOME CHRISTMAS CHEER FOR THE SITSTAS: challenging the notion that good things come in small packages

Season's Greetings SITSTAS, Readers, Blogger Pals, Non-Blogging Friends...EVERYONE! 

If you've visited the Rookery before, you may well recall my affinity for vintage photographs; especially those passed down from my family.  So, it's probably no surprise that I've chosen one of my absolute favorites as the official Rook No. 17 Holiday Card:

  14. I seriously think you and I may have been separated at birth. I usually make my Christmas cards with old photos, too. The last one was a pic of my dad when he was about 5 (that would make it 1940) sitting under the Christmas tree. It was hand tinted and I loved it!

  20. OK, i am soooo glad that the commenters before noticed the "BIG FISH" as well... WOW!!!

    Do you think the actual fish caught a glimpse of that dude and just surrendered? I mean, if i was a fish and saw a dude with that big of a "pole" i wouldn't put up a fight... LOL

    OK, out of the gutter... and MERRY SITSmas, a day late!!!
