Here’s a little clip of Woody the Woodmouse using a nightvision camera. He almost never comes out during the day, so I figured I would see if he’s as antisocial at night. Turns out he’s quite active for hours on end. As soon as any motion is detected in the apt, Woody digs underground and hides till the coast is clear.

This clip is sort of funny – Woody runs in his wheel so fast that he literally gets tossed across his cage… again and again. He seems to enjoy it.

Tonight was the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony in downtown Lake Oswego; this year there were two trees at two places. The first one was at the Safeway shopping center, the second one was at the newly rebuilt Millennium Plaza Park.

Codi and I started the evening off with a dinner at Zeppo – excellent butternut squash soup!! Here are some pics of the celebration:

Dancers & carolers gathered in Millennium Plaza and entertained the crowds

The conductor of the Christmas band was really getting into it

The horns section was really good

It was really cold (about 38 degrees) so there were portable heaters everywhere

People were lining up for really good-smelling, hot popcorn

Here’s a funny picture of Santa
