Here are Nick, Christopher, Naomi and David at the gift opening at Granny's. Later we played what Nigel called "Greed" which involved opening presents and taking previously opened ones... lots of fun. For more pictures of Christmas they're on flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/nealea/sets/72157611673900719/

Here I am as a bishop - a walk on in role - in a production of Saint Nicolas by Benjamin Britten that was put on at Christ Church Cathedral on November 3. The tenor Benjamin Butterfield played the part of Nicolas. I was one of about ten bishops who were part of a Council of Nicea scene. With me here are Bert Allsop, Howard Teasley, and Graham Rawlings

Ros and I really enjoyed our holiday in Quebec, seeing relatives (Judy and Jerry, Doug Neale and his friend Wendy) and friends (Ken and Sandie Melchin) and enjoying Montreal and - especially - Quebec City, my birthplace, on their 400th Birthday. Here are some pictures we took. (Click the "i" for information about each.)

This is where I should have been sitting this afternoon, rather than fooling around with the camera - and reading a book and having a beer. It's so green this time of year. The wheelbarrow in the background though reminds me there's always work to do in the garden.
Here's Fred in his more traditional garb after an ordination service on Sunday. On behalf of diocesan bishops in the Dioceses of New Westminster and Kootenay, the Archbishop ordained five people. In the picture are the Rev. Patrick Blaney, who will serve at the Cathedral, and the Rev. Kelly Duncan, who is destined for the Diocese of Kootenay
I enjoyed as Communications Officer for the Diocese of New Westminster being with Archbishop Fred Hiltz, here touring a subsidized housing complex that the Church has been involved in. Jack Card is a resident and storekeeper in "The Wellspring." His dog is named Ruby. Fred, head of the Anglican Church of Canada, came for a four day official visit, and one thing he did was get a taste of the social services the diocese is involved in. The Archbishop loves dogs--he just lost a Labrador that had been in the family for 15 years, and really missed him. "The Wellspring" is one of relatively few places where people can keep their pets.
