On the shearing of Daniel, plus niece photos

For reasons that seemed good at the time, I shaved off my beard this evening. I don't remember the last time I was so barren as to face, but it has been at least 15 years, although about 10 years ago, I shaved down to a goatee. I am not sure I like the effect.
...and after. Come to think of it, I definitely don't like it. No more shaving for the next month or so.

I have also posted some Christmas shots on my photo album. Some niece highlights are this one of Désirée siting on a tiki my father made for Stephen...
...and this one of me (with beard) holding Isla in my parents' kitchen. This was her first trip anywhere.

Finally, in early December, I saw a large flock of wild turkeys in a field near Lennoxville. Very surprising and a lot of fun to see these magnificent birds. It was about the first time I have seen these birds in the Eastern Townships. I have heard them on one or two times before, but I had never seen them. I had seen wild turkeys in Ontario.

That is much my feeling as well.

We saw the turkeys along Lake Road last summer in a field near the Lebaron Farm.

As for the beard, who can tell with what you left and the awful picture you took of yourself. Smile...Click!! How's it now?
