photo Christmas cards landing in my mailbox this time of year. It's nice to see how the kids have grown, and everyone is wearing their holiday best while gathered 'round the warm glow of the Christmas tree. Even more exciting is the enclosed form letter detailing the year's triumphs and tragedies: Cousin Stevie graduated high school with honors, Uncle Gene had hernia surgery, and crazy old Aunt Margaret sunk all her savings into an emu farm. Imagine my surprise when this afternoon, I received this festive photo Christmas card from "Creepy" Joe Simpson and family! Of course, the first thing I did was scan it so I could post it and share with my readers. 2007 Simpson family update can be read in full here. Medium: digital composite. Idea was collaborated upon while enjoying a deceptive bottle of premium sake with Candy at a boisterous sushi bar. Text written by Candy Kirby.
