World Tour Finals

The loneliness of being Roger Federer (picture by roGER)

I've been meaning to post some pictures myself and Mandy took at the World Tour Finals at the Dome in November.
We were very lucky with both the afternoon and evening sessions.

In the afternoon we saw Roger Federer beat Mardy Fish in 3, and in the evening we saw Jo-Wilfred Tsonga beat Raffa Nadal also in 3.
It's a wonderful event and we really enjoyed it from some very good albeit pricey seats.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
