Christmas in the Village a Pictorial

Christmas in the Village a Pictorial

Ok, I mentioned last night I was going out with the family, some of ya'll (tweeple) said to take some pics, so here ya go...

For some background, I left the big city life back when my first child was borne and headed to the country. We eventually landed (5 years ago) in a small town of 1500 that is quaint and offers all the goodiness that comes with small town life.

Our main street is maybe a few hundred yards long, has maybe 20 stores and well... that's about the size of it. We don't even have a set of street lights in town, just a stop sign in the middle of town.. Gives you the idea. Each year they close off the main street and the town turns up to get into the holiday spirit. Here's some visuals from last night.

Small town Christmas

That of course are the kidlets... or as I like to say these days, the 'hicklets' since they're true blue country kids. They are Elisia and Adrian... they had a blast.

At the local barber shop (yes, with striped poll and all) they were set up for the kids to make some antlers for the evening. Oh and the antlers themselves? You trace yer hand... very cute.


Meanwhile, over at the local real estate office, Santa and the missus had set up shop. This is a good move because last year? They had it in the funeral strange choice. Nice to see they moved it.

Horse Drawn wagon

Another tradition around here, a few times per year, one of the local farmers brings his horses and wagon into town. It's a nice ride around the town and the kids just LOVE it. Fortunately it wasn't TOO cold, so it was bearable this year.

Just a couple of pics with the fam'. One with my daughter and of course I had to work one in with the missus, whom just HATES cameras and me posting her pic for the world to Hopefully I will avoid the dog house with that one...

And there we have it... there were more pics, but I know yer busy, so that's the quick jist of things. The Legion (veterens center) had story telling and a choir as well. Fun time all in all.

From me and mine to you and yours; Happy holidays!

It has been quite some time since I posted anything non-geek related, not really sure why. But have no fear, there were a few picks from the (peaceful) holiday weekend up here that I was sorting and thought to share. It was a nice quiet time wandering the country side near home with the kidlets. The missus decided to become part of a family gathering of Canadian Geese (4 sets of parents and some 4-6 goselings each)... so I took my family to sit among theirs..

Another year on the Trail

3 years and I still won’t shut up

Well it’s that time again… a blogging anniversary. If you’ve ever wondered about the screwed up domain name (HuoMah = FireHorse) be sure to see last years post…

We’ve now logged more than 450 posts (yea slowed down a bit) and over 1600 comments (and thousands of spam ones deleted). Over the last year we had more than 85 000 visitors and 130 000 page views (not including the Dojo). We also had more than 2 dozen fine folks as guest riders on the Trail to bring new life to my tired old banter.

What is most interesting at the end of the day is the fact that people actually enjoy some of the geekier stuff and come back for more. I’ve done less ranting and more musing and digging than in the past on the urging of my SOSG mate, more focus on IR was the call of the day since early 09.

I have never done a 'Follow Friday' on Twitter as it seems that I could never mention all the peeps I enjoy and would ultimately leave some peeps of the list. I mean with a mere 140 char how can I pay my respects to all the peeps I enjoy Tweeting with?

So here goes... my mega list for Follow Friday

@ TheMadHat

And there we have it... and if I still managed to miss you... don't worry, shall be updating each week! At this point I have gotten through the first hundred or so peeps I am following... more will be added as I go...

Have a great weekend!
