A Very Special Card

My first published photograph.


Yes, we got lots of Christmas cards again this year and we appreciate them all. It’s good to hear from folks you don’t talk to  much and Christmas is a great opportunity to touch base.

We don’t get many cards in the mail anymore. Do you remember when your mail box would be stuffed with cards every day for a couple of weeks before the 25th? But we did receive one very special card in our box this year. It was one from the mayor of St Catharines. That’s the first time in my entire life that I got a card from a mayor.

Thank you Mr Mayor. It’s an honor to be chosen.


That was one reason this card was so special. You can see the card here. I point your attention to the collage of photos by local photographers on the front. There’s four more on the back. The list of local photo enthusiasts includes me.

Last march Marilyn and I were walking on the Lake Ontario  pier at Port Dalhousie. The ice covered  bushes from a storm  the day before. As they say, the rest is history.
