Christmas Card

This is my Christmas Card for all of Going Gently’s followers
For those that don’t know this is Finlay my first Welsh Terrier 
He was asleep sat upon the sofa like a little old man 


It’s been another challenging year for all of us, hasn’t it? 
Thank you all for your continued support, comments and good humour
2022 is going to be better 
It has to be..
Love 
John
Dorothy, Mary and Albert

  44. Thank you for your lovely card of Finlay. I have read your brilliant blog for many
    years. Wishing you and your furbabies a Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2022.

  45. What a fluffball your Finlay was!

    I tend to err on the side of optimism but I think you have one over me. 2022 better than 2021? We'll see. Approach with caution. At the beginning of 2021 I had it in my bones that it wouldn't be the best of years. Let's just say it was a mixed bag.

    My good wishes for Christmas and the New Year will reach you closer to the time. First I need to find some mistletoe. Don't worry. I may not be vaccinated but I do know how to keep my distance.

    Happy Advent,
    U
