Nice and quiet....The look on the right monkey tells me that somebody stole his banana, maybe it is hanging in the Christmas tree??
Bill Phillips: Either that or his wife has told him he can't open the Christmas booze before midday!
I love the family portrait Bill... i guess that you were able to get one of these Thomas Kinkade Santa Figurines... since they are limited to one per customergrin...

Bill Phillips: Sadly no Peter. It would grace any home wink

Oh, so cute and sweet, I can well recognise you and Angela and Helen - the other members might be in the kitchen to prepare the Droitwurst and other delicacies for Christmas days - I wish you all happy seasons!
Bill Phillips: Kathryn can cook and Jason can arrange a nice salad! A very happy Christmas to you too Philine.

There's a bit of sadness to this scene, Bill. I guess it's what we all feel when we can't all be together. But we still make the best of it, don't we! Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Bill Phillips: It was a bit of a cold day so they were huddled! Happy Christmas to you as well

Yes I can see all things evolve to a point of no return. Apes into us, and the nativity into the Thomas Kinkade True Meaning of Christmas. I think I might go and top myself!
Bill Phillips: The kinkade thing reminded me of the sort of spoof they used to have in Viz. Only this is for real! Happy Christmas to you and Ingrid.
Happy Christmas and holiday to you and your family, Bill. Enjoy it.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Sheila, I am sure we will
So are we Bill, just got my new Fuji X100.Have a good the picture is the usual rubbish.
Bill Phillips: That looks an interesting camera. Wasted on you of course, but i hope you have a lot of fun with it. Have a good Christmas and hope we get the chance to meet up in 2013 for some face to face insults grin
A fine picture Bill, very much how things should be at Christmas. Have a good day tomorrow, best wishes from us both.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. Hope we get to see you both in 2013.

Is there such thing as a QUIET family Christmas?
Bill Phillips: There is if you do not have Grandchildren
A remarkable likeness, Bill, all the best from up North. smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mate. All the best to you too. I must return to my mother's home county next year.

If my wife looked like that, I would listen to her when she forbids use of wine. Most unsettling is that the little one seems scared of you, the photographer.
Bill Phillips: This was at Monkey Forest at Trentham Gardens Stoke on Trent. These Barbary Macaques are quite used to people every the very young ones don't seem to be much bothered. Mind you they hadn't seen anything like me before
I like the ape picture better...
Bill Phillips: compared with the lower image they represent the spirit of Christmas far better
This is so cute Bill. Happy Christmas Eve to you and yours!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Richard. I wish the same to you and your family
Is that quiet with the Thomas Kinkade Narrative Santa Figurine?? grin

Merry Christmas Bill smile
Bill Phillips: I hadn't realised that the true meaning of Christmas was Santa whittling a bit of wood.

Merry Christmas to you too

You've grown your hair since I met you, Bill. And Angie looks a bit different. Happy Christmas to you and yours
Bill Phillips: It is the strain Lisl. Have a lovely Christmas
Best wishes for Christmas, to you and the quiet family, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Graeme, you too
