What do you get if you and your Mrs. Stockdale run a race on the Singapore ‘Green Corridor’?

The ‘Green Corridor’ is a former railroad line that was converted to a running/biking trail years and years ago.

The best part of ‘being the first to race along Singapore’s most unique course’ is that a week after the race, the ‘Green Corridor’ is being closed so they use the path for a pipeline.

Singapore loves polar bears, and pipelines, and tote bags.

Spent the holidays with Mrs. Stockdale’s family.  Always better to let someone else host, cook, and clean, etc.

The little Stockdales had a great gift for the grandparents.

I’m sure these have become regular parts of their wardrobe and haven’t been thrown away.

I unfortunately missed out on quite possibly the best White Elephant gift ever.

Instead I got an awesome compact disc that I ‘forgot’ to take home.  I’m guessing I’ll get it again next year.

The crazy little Stockdale did get the safest ( metric for funnest ) present of the year.  Unfortunately the safety wimps at the airlines won’t let her bring it back to Singapore. Next year the little Stockdales will be receiving Jarts and a Bag-of-Glass.

Christmas dinner was odd because a group of strangers was invited.

However, they quickly left after seeing Mrs. Stockdale’s mother’s favorite Christmas decoration.  It’s eyes follow you around the room and it kills on the eve of the full moon.

After the holiday, we returned to Lake Lotsastockdale and received a welcome surprise.

All in all, another good holiday for the Stockdales.

I became a year older.

And the big little Stockdale became a teenager.

And the middle little Stockdale won a fruit basket.

And we got some more totebags.

The global warming created by all the candles was more than compensated by for by the expansion of the totebag collection.

The furry little Stockdale has been busy taking up more space in the house.

So, far she’s only destroyed two grill covers and Mrs. Stockdale’s favorite pair of shorts.
