"Santa contemplates the silly season"

By dales
Spotted this interesting character in our local shopping centre , after checking out the shops he was seated outside the Post Office , reminded me of Santa preparing for the big night Smile

Hi all at EPZ , been AWOL for some time due to an apparent heart heart attack in May (successfully treated) followed by another stay in hospital a few months later for 3 units of blood and one of iron , then followed up a month later with a dose of the Covid . Now on the path to full recovery but may be hit and miss with family commitments etc , looking forward to catching up with the goings on hereSmile
Cheers !!

So many letters, so little time!

Good to see you back again....and sorry to hear of your recent troubles...just to say there is life after these events...I had stents fitted over 10 years ago now and touch wood, all is well. Follow the guidelines, do the rehab exercises and ease yourself back in, albeit at a slightly slower pace😁

Sorry to hear you've been unwell, glad to know you're back and posting photos again. Such a great therapy Smile
I too had a break. Not intentionally but just my workload just piled up so much. Til I made a stand and took some time out for myself. When I looked I had not paid my sub on here for 18 months. Its actually great to be back and enjoying something again.

Glad to see you back and getting stronger by the day it sounds. V2 is my favourite. He at least has his red suspenders on. Too hot for his Santa suit.

I am this man...

The mod is only a crop and toning, as I love the image and feel the wider image tells the story a little more.

Went through a year like yours back in 2018, Ian, so full of sympathy. If you are on heart meds, I discovered that a daily dose of vitaman B12 helped enormously in my recovery.
Good to have you back to chat to, at least you have Sunshine to aid you, looking out on typical English drizzle most of the time at the moment.
Summer is coming SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

I Have missed your images Ian …that does sound like quite an ordeal…glad to hear your health has rebounded mate . I started extra vitamin b12
and a good quality Coq 10
Supplement which is apparently good for our heart some years back , definitely gave my energy a much needed boost .
Can’t imagine how many texts Santa must have to deal with every day !
Best regards

Welcome back Ian, sorry to hear you have been under the weather, as we say.
Perhaps he is trying to decide how to navigate the season of gluttony and sloth, without also becoming a statistic at the local health centre.
