Christmas 2008 in Ollon, Switzerland

Whenever possible, over the years, we try to spend Christmas with the Doctors Durham, not just because of the turkey, but also because of the stuffing.

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Christmas warm-up with Mercedes and Lisa

Obligatory pause to figure out how the camera works, in the forest above La Givrine.

Ooops. Lisa fall boom.

What now?

Okay, your turn.

Mercedes fall boom.

Mercedes can't unfall boom.

We may have to leave her here.

Christmas dinner in Ollon

Some Christmas. This is the village of Burtigny across the ravine from my flat in Bassins. Now to Ollon.

Time for Christmas dinner, with Mercedes and Téa.

Andrea and turkey. And Lisa.

The ritual opening of the presents

The hall of the opening of presents

Téa is reading my present -- all the hot news stories from 1945 (I don't actually remember any of them). Dante is wearing a silly hat.

Nth in the Christmas series

Christmas stocking. Lots of stockings, in fact.

-- Oh great; a what's-it.

Happy Christmas, Everybody.
