Actually there has not been much yule life in the Jones Street apartment since the mid-1970’s. After David and Muni moved out next door, then Jeffrey, I was here by myself. And I didn’t need more than a Barbara Mandrel Christmas Special to get me in a festive mood.
I didn’t put much energy into San Francisco Christmases because I went home to Indiana every year. And there I overdid it. Here is a video tour of the Hoosier residence from a couple years ago. It’s a little long, 8 minutes, but packed with holiday charm.
The many faces of Christmas joy.
Daryl and my Mother going over the miracle of the virgin birth.
Taking on the topping responsibilities.
Jim as a Silver Father Jesus Christmas.
Not to be out topped.
Who wouldn’t want to find this under their tree? David giving the greatest gift of all, himself.
David and me.
Johnny Disco loving every minute of it.
Heather and Dalia discussing one of the ornaments while David checks the girthage.
A wonderful place to be during the holidays, under the tulle.
Muni supervising the three children.
Waiting for Santa.
