Thanksgiving. I think I've posted before how it's a special holiday to me -- all holidays are basically about food, seeing your family, and appreciating your life, but Thanksgiving is literally just about eating and family and appreciating your life. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

It's also my favourite-ish time of year, it's quiet, pensive, not-quite-winter (here in the South anyway) and I just really like it. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

That's one drawback of Christmas Down Under. It's almost always 35C...

Interesting we have a mostly recurring theme of Christmas but a large spread of other holidays.

As suggested here

What's your ringtone/phone wallpaper?

I don't have a ringtone, but my wallpaper is an overlay of a close-up of Sadie with some dramatic clouds (I think it's a crop of the picture I used for my cover of 'Little Wing'). I change it every month or two (far more often than I think I should); previously it was a picture that my wizard-friend had drawn of my two favourite brainchildren as spaghetti-Western characters. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I just use whatever the default ringtone is, but my phone's always muted so it doesn't make a difference. As for my wallpaper, I have a picture of my rabbit as my home screen and this picture

of my kitty as my lock screen.

^Oh yeah, you iPhone people get to have two different wallpaper possibilities. Meh. Don't like Apple. I got an Android that's better than that, and nothing is better than that! a-hard-days-night-george-10

Wallpaper is a photo I took of two tall trees, same type and height, one barren and one green, with apartments and clouds and blue sky in background. Nice pic, I think! Or maybe hopelessly banal.

And my ringtone is Famous Beethoven's famous 8th String Quartet - the first movement (which really reminds me of "Dazed and Confused"!)

Thank you ahdn_george_08 It's her breed, all Dutches have those markings (or similar at least.) They're fantastic. Here's one (nabbed off the Internet) that looks even more like the cookie a-hard-days-night-george-9
