When did you last call me Godfather?


It has been pointed out by more than one person how much like a mafia party this Boxing Day photo looks.

  1. The difference being that I am tolerated rather than respected...

    1. I didn't know you had no face!
      Great photo, though.

    2. I daren't show it. Nothing to do with security, it's just vanity.

    3. "Vanity"? I am sure you'd look much better WITH a face. Even if it is yours.

    4. Like egocentricity - people who get nervous speaking in public are thinking of themselves constantly.

  2. Your beautifully appointed city apartment is larger than I expected

    1. No it isn't. This was taken in deepest Somerset.

    2. And it's 'compact but adorable'. Keep up.

  3. I think it is the chap on the right in the hat that sets the tone.

    1. I've got a bone to pick with him. I was held down while he covered me in glitter dust. I will still be finding bits of glitter in years to come.

  4. It would be a rare blonde hair, blue and green eyes mafia family.

    It's a lovely photo; you have a pretty and handsome family!

    1. Or were you talking in general?

    2. Specific. Nothing to do with enjoyment. Whacked, done in, had it

  8. Did you make anyone an offer they couldn't refuse?

    1. I don't make offers these days, as a refusal often offends.

  9. I found the inner meaning of "an expressionless face".
    Otherwise, this looks like a nice family gathering. We are not half that amount of people so Boxing Day, whatever I can compare that with, is nowadays a very quiet gathering. Is that the day after Christmas day 25? That blank face gives me the creeps, please post one with your face back on, I would find it comforting since the faceless horrors of the world are quite enough!!! Happy New Year, Tom!!!

    1. 26th. Maybe you don't know about 'Boxing Day'. It's a quaint old English custome when all the tradesmen would know at the back door the day after Christmas, and expect you to put money in a box they took with them, in order to get good service the following day. Some tradesmen still did it when I was a kid in a rich area.

    2. .... and knock not know !!! XXXX

    3. They still get it here although they dont have to knock on the door.

    4. Did I say 'know'? My father used to pretend to be out, but not very well. The dustmen would leave rubbish strewn down athe drive for weeks afterwards. I felt ashamed...

  10. All in all, Boxing Day doesn't seem to be a holiday I will wote for in our neighbourhood......
    Thank you for this memorable information!!
