To kick off this Christmas week, please join in and sing the following to the tune of “I’ll be home for Christmas” by Bing Crosby.

“I’m laming out for the Holidays
You can count on it.
There won’t be posts, or anything newâ¦
It’s a present just for me.

Christmas Eve will find me
Far away from this blog
But I’ll be back again next week
I’m off to watch TV”

That’s right folks, I am totally “laming out” (laming rhymes with flaming) and kicking back and relaxing with the family. I’m not working, blogging, breathing, eating, posting, no Grid episode, no guest blog Wednesday; just joyous rest, relaxation, the sounds of distorted guitars and explosions as I play Call of Duty between football games. So, take a brief moment to soak in all the wonder and magic that is the stock image with text I added in Photoshop, and  then let’s not think about any of this until next week? Deal? Deal!

Here’s wishing you and your family a safe, happy, healthy holiday and all the joy His season can bring. :)

Merry Christmas!

-Scott, Braddo, and the entire crew here at KelbyOne

  12. Scott, I’ve got some holiday time off now as well. Wow, it’s been a long year! I just bought the Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II from B&H and am really excited to shoot with it. It’s always nice to make a purchase and have some holiday time right after to spend some quality time with some hard earned photography equipment! I see it’s one of your favorite lenses!

  13. Laming!!?? More likely recharging and refocusing on your creativity and energies on those things important to you.

    Merry Christmas to you, your family, and the KelbyOne family.

  16. Scott, I hope you, Kalebra and the kids have a wonderful Christmas! You’ve earned this vacation from it all. Thanks for a great year of learning from Kelby Media, and I look forward to 2015 to see what you’ll bring us. And I don’t think any vacation can be called “lame”!


  17. The kelbyone symbol in the bulb was a nice touch. Lamer! ;-) I for one am a Titanfall guy.

    • My son loves, loves, loves Titanfall – he even talked me into buying but, but I still haven’t installed it — it’s sitting in the box. I have my hands full enough with COD (though I did Prestige two days ago). :)
