A few days ago we did some Christmas shopping in the nearby town of Poulsbo. Its downtown shops have an old world appeal and folks there are very proud of its Norwegian heritage. In one of those shops I couldn't resist taking, Henri, our little traveling companion out of my coat pocket for a visit with some very similar looking characters. I think Henri prefers the open road better, but the shop keeper enjoyed the fun anyway.

I'll betcha the other little guys wish they were with Henri--they have been standing there so long their beard have grown to the floor. It looks everyone had a fun time. MB

Great shots and thanks for sharing the link to Poulsbo. Very interesting reading.

Cheers John norwegian viking, haha. ;)

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting – yet constantly reworking – this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

Yes, I am but a mere mortal. The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, and those that have all seem a little worse for wear, if you catch my drift. All they seem to do is sit around smoking, playing cards and telling dirty jokes! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape. And you know, the wallabies just don’t cut it as replacements.

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies are all as sweet as you like them.
