Driving out the road on this snowy day, a sentimental country Christmas song came on the radio, "The Christmas Shoes."  It had a catchy tune, so I listened a bit…little did I know that it would so quickly transport me back to another time. 

 

"It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line

Trying to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood

Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my father’s 92nd birthday.  Our birthday celebration will have to wait a couple more weeks because my dad is currently in Texas for a month, training field trial dogs with my stepmother.  If anyone feels well enough to be on a road trip in their nineties, more power to them!
