My Hubpages Tribute To All My Friends On Hubpages!

Happy Christmas!

As it's Christmas I just wanted to say thank you to all at Hubpages for making my year and a bit very enjoyable! I have laughed and cried, giggled and wow'd! I have met some great people, and I meet more every day.

The one thing that I love about Hubpages is that you meet so many people from around the world. In a normal day you only see the people who you work with or friends in your town.

But on here I have met Americans who are lovely jubbly! ha ha Indonesians who are so sweet I could hug them, and Canadians who are great and have the same sense of humour as me! Oh, and so many other nationalities I couldn't count them here!

I first wrote this back in 2011 and I left a load of tributes here to many other hubbers. When I first started reading this again to update I realised that they had all left!

Its sad to see that they have gone, but you are all here now and I have met so many new and fascinating people.

So this time I am not going to write down names, just in case you all decide that actually you are planning on going to move on to other pastures Too! Don't you dare! lol!

So to all of you, have a great Christmas!



Seriously, thanks everybody, and now I will leave you with some of my great photos extraordinaire that I took yesterday trekking through the snow, on a one horse open sleigh.... well, perhaps not, just trekking actually! I nearly fell in the river taking them, but that shouldn't surprise anyone! hee hee so here we go, take notice of the fine white snow, and the white fence's and the white trees.......Um!

It was dark and cold that winters day,

I couldn't see a thing,

The snow was blue, or was that me?

So cold my fingers sting!

The railway track was white with snow,

The service stopped again,

So we had to walk a while,

So cold I must be insane!

Here's the alley near my house,

It looks eerie and so white,

Its pretty in the daytime,

But so scary in the night!

The river's turned into a wonderland,

I wish it would stay this way,

But soon the snow will disappear,

Then the Sun will be back to stay.


Me nearly falling backwards in the River!

Nell Photographer Extrordinaire! Ho hum!, well perhaps not....!

I know, I know! perhaps not that good, but you must admit the red tights on the line were worth waiting for? Yeah? see? No? Okay, I think I will stick to writing!

HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY!

Happy Christmas Nell.

Beautiful photos, but why have you got an umbilical cord on your clothesline? Is this an Essex fertility ritual?

Hi, ethel, it is still freezing here, and very slippery! thanks for reading it, have a great Christmas! cheers nell

Hi, christopher, ha ha thanks for the laugh, it is not my clothes line, it was a house I was struggling past trying not to fall over into their garden because of the snow! it does look like it though, doesn't it? it was a pair of tights! I think, not sure now! lol thanks again nell

forgot to say, how funny is this? I had two more followers this afternoon, and now that I have written this, they have disappeared! ha ha I think they were annoyed I never mentioned them!

Great pictures and prettier from the inside looking out! Grab you some of those coins with Kate and Williams pictures if they have been released yet, they will be collectibles I can tell you because Kate is not gonna stand for those ugly pictures of her to be on anything and make them redo it...or she's a fool if she don't! I think I smell a Queen behind this, possibly Camiller or maybe it's just me...haha

Love ya Nell. You are too damn self-conscious if you think you lost two followers because they were unmentioned! You have more than 900 followers and mentioned about one percent. That is high praise for them but I know you love me from your many visits and lovely comments. I am so looking forward to your 100th Hub which I know will be simply SMASHING! I hope that doesn't impose any pressure. You are one of the best reads around HUBTOWN and a good spirit, as well. Cheers and Happy Holidays. Gerry
