Emperor Jake managed to get a photo of him flying over the beaches on his way to his secret location where he can be seen coming into land.
It has sleeping quarters for his helpers, some of them are over on the ice playing.
He has his own sheep to shear for his clothing and meat to eat. Grows his own grapes for his wine.
When the boomer are not required for Christmas they revert back to their original status as grey and red kangaroos.
It´s white Christmas. First after several years. Can you see a christmas tree?

During the Christmas and new year holidays, you can go not only to warmer climes for recreation, but also just to visit their loved ones and relatives who live in the urban villages. In the urban village of Vichuga you can visit the local Christmas market, skate on the lake, breathe the frosty air of pine forests, walk through the Park, which is located next to the railway station. And in the evening you can all look at the fireworks from any part of the village.wallyweb
It's very early Christmas morning in a small town atop a hill on the Canadian prairies. All is quiet. All is white. The children stare at their presents while waiting impatiently for Ma and Pa to tell them its ok to start unwrapping. The local train is just pulling out on its trip to the city. Not very many passengers during the holidays. The ice on town square pond is ready for the skaters, old and young. Papa Joe's Hot Chocolate Stand by the pond will be serving mugs of steaming hot chocolate with a marshmallow floating on the top. The pond trees and bridges and Papa Joe's are all decorated with lights. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL.
