Girding up ones loins.

Never have really understood that phrase, tho I use it a lot.  Always have a vision of 


 Gandhi. 

So - back to resolutions.

Boxing Hares.





Shedudio is full of 'em. 





  Decided to go with this one.  With alterations and help from some other photographs, so unsure who to give credit to!

The Hare on the ground is thinking, left or right hook?  The one which will be directly above, as opposed to on the left of....



.....is looking, to say the least, disjointed!

Hopefully all will come together.

Meanwhile I am now eyeing up the stuff to come apart.  Like the Christmas Tree.  Well it doesn't actually come apart as its a real one.  We argue every year as to when 12th night is.  I maintain its the 4th January, if you count Christmas Eve as the first night.  

Well do you know what hour Mary gave birth?  

I have all on to remember the time I gave birth, so how are a load of men going to get it right?  Kings -  huh.  Shepherds? Na.  

And did Joseph or any of them wear a watch????

Right, tree down tomorrow.
