Just checked the house lights, there are also Christmas trees and ornaments as well as dots and snowflakes. It looks pretty good!

But it's too dim to get a picture of it.

No flying mangers.

I think that's just as well, Fritz. :)
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love – time is eternity.

A friend is what the heart needs all the time.

Year before last Louise complained if a stray photon came through her window, so this year we'll make sure that they're all stopped by the house front!

Guess Amadeus would have loved that combination. Looks very nice.

January 20th is my sister's birthday, so between Ingdarlin's birthday and hers, you should have no problems.

Hello Ingwriter! :) I'm glad to hear that your very busy weekend went well and that you've gotten some sun. I hope your Mozart commemoration goes well, too.

Thanks a lot, sweet Jennyleinchen!   :) :) :)

Hoping for the best for your parents; it's a very difficult situation both for them and for you and your sister. I know how that can be from my experience with my own parents. :(

Merci for your sweet words and comforting thoughts.

Means a lot.

Tomorrow there'll be a general strike in France, one of the worst that the country has experienced in more than two decades. Virtually nothing will be working.

Poor Mr S - his trains from here will only reach the border, and he's got no idea how he'll get into Strasbourg's city center and back home again. It's way too far to walk. Everything will be jammed, so even hitchhiking isn't an option.

At least tomorrow and Friday.

Hopefully, these strikes won't continue into next week.

Yikes!

Is he still expected to get to work even if there's no transport?

Yes of course he is.

I remember the terrible strikes in 1995 (also in December) which lasted for weeks on end. No transport whatsoever.

He stayed there with colleagues overnight in the office from Mond-Frid, in a sort of improvised "bedroom", several weeks in a row.
