Angels We Have Heard on High VI December 27 2012

A Lego Angel?  Well, why not.  It was a day with my daughter who arrived safe and sound if not two days late from the USA.  The supposed snowstorm in Chicago that left only mini-millimeters of snow, and cancelled all flights flying through that airport.  What a waste.  I could not have imagined Christmas Eve without her.

We went to Covent Garden; for some reason the only Jack Daniels Whisky barrel tree outside of Lynchburg is here.  I guess Londoners drink a lot of their product?  It is well advertised in the Tube.  Hence, Tube users are heavy patrons of jack Daniels Whisky.  She wanted to meet a friend there and it seemed a perfect match.  Except for the rain.  Have I ever told you it has been raining a lot in London? 

So, least expectation was for an angel; but as I always find – I can find what i am not looking for if indeed I am not looking for it.  Today I was not searching for angels, I was searching for whisky barrels and I found an angel.  Oh dear….I hope that doesn’t mean what I think it might mean.

There are over 7000 pieces of Lego in the calendar which took seven weeks to build.  I don’t know if that means full time like a real job; but it looks like an undertaking.  Visit – and tell me your favourite window.  Mine was the Christmas Pudding.

We also found the original Neal’s Yard, in well, Neal’s Yard.  I put a few photos in a “gallery” – I might have to do a section on this alone.  It was colourful and fun…..in this dreary weather I could relate to why theLove this signage bright colours.

Only one outside of Lynchburg!
