Merry Christmas from Whoever (Whomever?)

I'm still wrestling with my Google identity crisis but I can't let this week go by without a Christmas post, no matter who Blogger thinks I am today. 

This comes to you from LD Masterson (and hopefully, Blogger will agree).

It's been an up and down blogging year for me. More down than up. I disappeared to play catch up, got lost in a couple "his and hers" hospitalizations, and now I've got my mish-mashed accounts problem. So I'm just going to post this today, visit as many of you as I can over the holidays, and start fresh in 2017.

My Christmas gift to you is my favorite Christmas video -
 
The Silent Monks
(yes, I know the window runs over but if I shrink it, you can't see the image as clearly)


And after the laughs, if you'd like a less comedic version, here's one of my favorites .  
Peter, Paul & Mary with the New York Choral Society.




And now
Our stocking are hung...



the Nativity scene is on the lawn


and I'm wishing you and yours

Merry Christmas,
Happy Holidays,
and a
Wonderful 2017.

See you next year.

Hi LD - here's to a better 2017, and I'll join you in that thought. I do hope the identity crisis can be worked through ... troubling not know if you're John or Jo ... more importantly I hope the His and Hers healths will stay improved ... take care and enjoy the peaceful and blessed time with family and friends - cheers Hilary

That monks video is hilarious.
Hope you find your true identity.
Merry Christmas, LD!

Merry Christmas, LD (although I'll always know you as Linda!). :)

Vanessa Morgan said...

Happy holidays!

LD Masterson said...

Thank you, Hilary. Cheers.

Alex - I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you.

Stacy, are you the one who's confusing Google? *grin*

Thank you, Vanessa. And to you.

I have a profile for me and for DLP and I hope they never get mixed up.

Merry Christmas.

Maria Zannini said...

We know who you are.

Merry Christmas and many hugs.

Mason Canyon said...

No matter who Blogger says you are, we still love and know you. :) Great videos. Wishing you and your family a safe and joyous holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

LD Masterson said...

Diane - I really hope they don't. I was trying to leave comments on people's blogs today and depending on how their blog was hosted, some identified me as LD Masterson and some as Linda Leszczuk - with no option for changing it. Argh! And a very merry Christmas to you, too.

Maria - What? I don't get to be a woman of mystery? Well, pooh. Hugs back.

Mason - Aw, shucks, thanks. I'm glad you liked the videos. Best holiday wishes to you and yours.

I got this from YOU, so that's good! Yes, to 2017 being a good year. No more of the "his and hers" stuff, OK? At least not THAT stuff. Happy New Year!

A very belated Happy New Year, LD. And I hope it's entirely trouble free. Now there's a wish and a half :)
