Christmas Past, Thanks for the Memories

Notice to all you good folk that have or may try to leave a comment. I have tried everything and I am unable to sign in to reply to your comments. I am very grateful for all of you that still visit my blog and want to thank you all for stopping in over the years. This situation with the comments is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how difficult it has become to post and comment on blogs. I've had a few blogs that I've been unable to leave comments on also.

For some time I have been thinking about closing my blog and I feel that this is the final straw, so to speak. I just don't have the energy or time to constantly try to figure out how to fix these type of issues. I checked in the blog help sections and find that many people are having the same problems. I really do think they are just trying to get rid of us free bloggers. 

So with some sadness but also relief, I feel this will probably be the last post you see from me. I'll keep my blog up for a few months but eventually it will all go away.  If I'm able, I'll stop in and visit your blog and comment if possible. Thanks from Diane and Guy!


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all that visit! I'm posting a bunch of pictures from my Blogger archive. These are some nice images from over the years. We have no snow this year so it is hard to get in the spirit of the season, but I'm doing my best.



No skating yet in our area as the lakes keep opening up and the ice is really thin. We have ducks and geese that have flown in from somewhere. They heard that my husband is a sucker for stray ducks so they are here for hand outs! We have a duck named Harvey who has been on our lake the past three years. We know Harvey because he injured his foot a few years ago and it withered to a stump. He still gets around well and even has a Mrs Harvey. My husband calls him and he hops up for his share of food in front of the others ducks. Harvey and his Mrs. have migrated and come back the last few years so we'll see if he shows up in the spring.

Guy Noir does not enjoy the snow as much as he did as a youngster. He's moving into his senior years now and still enjoys time outside but not so much in the cold and wet weather. I still enjoy the photo above where the tree captured a heart shape made by the snow. 

Hope you enjoyed the Christmas winter past photos. 

Best wishes to all of you! ~ Diane and Guy Noir


  1. Great photos! Guy Noir is the well-deserved star of the show! I hope your holidays are marvelous and fun-filled!

  2. Yes, it's a shame, but blogger has been causing many of us problems and glitches!

    However, I enjoyed this post and seeing your photographs.
    Wishing you happy holidays, and all good wishes for 2024.

    All the best Jan
