Wise Guy?

I thought this was an interesting character but I have no clue as to who it might be. Maybe one of the three wise guys? Just some well-to-do potentate?

Palm trees and flag on a sunny day

This was taken at the Spruce Creek golf course (where the Sandhill cranes posted yesterday were located).

Gift cards...

...for when you don't know what to give - at Christmas or anytime.

Santa's on his way?

Santa's on his way
But there's been a slight delay
The reindeer, tipsy with egg nog
Crashed ol' Santa's sleigh.
But "Do not fear, do not fret,"
Santa laughs and says,
"Ho, ho, ho, watch and see
"I ain't quitting yet".

Though he bumped His big ol' head
Upon his ol' red sled
And though his glasses
And his mind
Are just a bit awry
Santa will come visit you
He'll fly down from the sky.

The problem is that Santa knows
How you've behaved all year 
Hopefully, you've tried to be
A kind and gentle soul -
So you won't wake
On Christmas morn 
And find he's left you
One big lump of coal.

Creche for sale

You could have one just like this. If you so desired. The blue sheet of paper in the picture gives prices for everyone, from baby Jesus to the wise men. And if you bought one you would have helped "keep Christ in Christmas." Sort of.

A hunting we will go

Hunting for a wayward golf ball in the woods on a foggy morning!

"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." — Henri Cartier-Bresson
