(If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.)
Thank you. Feel free to ping me to these types of posts. I need them, especially around Christmas. Feeling very nostalgic this year for some reason.

As good a place as any to post my favorite Christmas memory.
It was 1969. I was 8 and my sister was 7. The year before, my father had left his job with an oil company to return to the family farm. My grandfather had cancer, and my dad ran the farm. Money was desperately scarce.
Under the tree that year for my sister and I were a bicycle and a Bible. As an adult with greater understanding of our circumstances at the time, I asked my Mother how she had ever gotten enough money to buy two bicycles. She put back every spare nickle she possibly could for months and months.
The bicycle is, of course, long gone, but I still have the Bible. It is a KJV, black leather cover with a zipper that closed it up. The pages are practically tissue. I'm sure you must know what I'm talking about; those were very common back in the day. It's pretty worn now, but I still love to look at the inscription written in her neat hand.
I miss my parents still, never more than at Christmastime.
