A song for my Dad: Crambone on Tom and Jerry –via YouTube. Happy Birthday (tomorrow) this one goes out to you, pops. I love you!!
Here’s an amusing article in Rolling Stone magazine about National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – the movie that lasts the whole year in my world. If anyone’s a fan and hasn’t read this yet, it highlights details about the making of the movie with many insightful comments from the cast and crew. I’ve watched Christmas Vacation countless times. I usually put the movie in at the end of the day. From the moment the theme song begins, I’m pacified. It’s like a baby’s mobile for me.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Wishing you happiness.” ~ Helen Keller

You’ve got this, Brad! The clock ticks for the fun that awaits you. Maybe we can both sip on a goose island when the sun sets… I’m toasting from afar now though with my watery coffee. Thank you so much for reading my posts so far and I truly appreciate your comments. I’m sending you and the family so much love and luck in the new year. All the best!
