Curtains of Christmas lights draped from every balcony in one of Glasgow's top stores.

My thanks as ever to those who took time to comment on Brodie, and Brodie says "Woof Woof" tooWinkWink.

Ronnie.

PS.........I think from comments made that there is a misconception, understandably so, that Brodie is my own dog, but he is not........he's our younger daughter's pet........ it's just that she is generous in allowing us to look after him for her quite a lot.
In fact he is lying at my feet as I type as he had a 'sleep over' with us (along with Finlay too, our wee grandson, now 13 months).

...and already they have 40% off Ronnie for anyone who still believes these offers. Another sign of the times is the guy on his mobile. But these details add to the image in my opinion. I haven't been to the shops for months and I have no intention of going there before Christmas - all done on the internet now. But back to the image - a really beautiful and spectacular Christmas scene.
