How Many More Times

Well, Christmas is a week away. Is everyone ready? I am, but that’s because we don’t buy a lot of presents, or do much to celebrate. I have to help with a breakfast this coming Friday, so I’ll prepare my menu and buy what I need today (and Thursday). We’re heading up to Vermont for a family Christmas at my wife’s brother’s house – that should be fun, but we need to be armed with our appetites only (although I’ll be ready and happy to help if needed).

We haven’t decorated the house in a bunch of years (we have traveled on many Christsmases), but yesterday my wife whispered to me that after she retires she wants to decorate the house for the holidays in a traditional, old fashioned way. That’s fine – go for it. She wants to host people at different get-togethers (with me cooking everything – that’s fine with me). Retirement isn’t that far off anymore (for my wife, anyway).

When we host, we’ll have music. Music can help lighten the mood. I have tons of Christmas music (some of which I shared on Friday), but any type of music is good. Today’s podcast looks back on music’s past, starting with the year 1966 and going from there. So listen to the Animals, Bob Dylan, the Blues Project, ? and the Mysterians, the Sleepover Disaster, Rod Stewart, Jethro Tull, the Black Hollies, Crazy Horse, Steve Earle, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and the Doors.
