I only joined RootsChat this year but have been amazed at how helpful, interested and interesting everyone is. Happy Christmas to all!

(My mum, clearly still a believer, in the late 40s.)

I cleaned your Mum & Santa up for you.
Merry Christmas  :D

Thanks to you all for the wonderful restorations you do for us.

I have loved reading all your stories and looking at the wonderfully restored photos. My parents were married on Christmas Eve 1945. It was a quiet register office wedding with no photos  :( :( but I have so many happy memories of them at Christmas Past.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year everyone xx

Yes.

It looks like a doll's house but it was actually a communal residence for my plastic animals.  The dinosaurs lived in the room on the far left except for the Pteranodon which lived on the second floor porch.  The more civilized animals lived inside.
