I PROMISE, THERE WILL BE NO MORE POINSETTIA CARDS...
(for this year, anyway!).
About 3 weeks ago, I gave out one of my Christmas cards to each of the
various departments at the Fort (each card very different from the rest).
The card I gave to the President, Committee, and Admin. staff is here.
A few afternoons later, one of the Admin staff rang me at home, to tell me
how much they all loved my card. She said the President loved it so
much, he was wondering if I could make 6 the same, and possibly
have them ready in 2 1/2 days! "Crikeys", I thought in a panic,
but calmly said "yes, of course". A couple of very late
nights later, all 6 were finished and boxed.
I'm sorry the photo is rather blurred...I took the photos in a 'mad hurry',
and realised after I had delivered the cards, that I had my camera on
the wrong setting.

We have had several lots of lovely visitors today, and I am exhausted. As I have to be up very early for duty at the Fort all day tomorrow, and have the long drive there and home, I had better have a quick shower and try to get some sleep.
Until next time,
