christmas past, 1949 style


We are presently delayed in Baltimore as we head to Texas for Christmas.   It has been a day of delays, from being late leaving the house because the contractor from the insurance company arrived to look at the job ten minutes before we intended to walk out the door.  The flight to Baltimore was delayed by almost two  hours .And now the flight to Austin has been rescheduled twice.

There is a lot of bad weather in the Southeast.

We could end up stuck here tonight.  I wouldn’t be surprised.

In honor of the holiday, I wanted to share Banjo Man’s favorite childhood gift from Santa.  He was eight.

Once in a while the grown up Banjo Man likes to put it under our tree.

I think it looks good there, don’t you?

    The beginnings of a guy in Viet Nam on a great big, really big, earth mover machine!

    I love it. It could be there every Christmas as Brent’s farm equipment from Grandpa and Grandma was for years, until I finally sent it to him. Linda used it plus other mementos of hers and his to decorate the spare bedroom in Vancouver. Very touching.
