Woke up early and relaxed. Had the breakkie. Headed on down town after a while. Parked and walked over to the Westlake Center for the start of the Jingle Bell Run 2016. I met Charlie there, he was doing it with the lads from his place of work.

The run started and we went along. I called Marie O before it started and we chatted for a wee bit. I was losing her going into the tunnel. After that I listened to Brandi Carlile singing Hallelujah followed by Elvis and Lisa Marie singing In The Ghetto on a duet, Jimi Hendrix singing Castles Made Of Sand, Blondie singing The Tide Is High and then Finished with U2 singing a live version of Bad.

I removed the headphones and crossed the finishing line of the 2016 Jingle Bell Run. Got my swag bag and headed back home. Natasha arrived back from the office a wee later. We went down to Pagliacci for lunch. It had been a while since we were there.



Headed on down to the Benaroya Hall later on to see and hear the Seattle Men’s Chorus do their Christmas show. “Silver And Soul”

It was the first year with the new Director and oh boy was it good. He made a great difference to an already great show. A gift to Seattle.
