Traveling the Electronic Christmas Highway

Let’s take an electronic roadway trip to enjoy

Through several cities bringing Christmas joy!


Meet Me in St. Louis back in time for the World’s Fair of 1904,

While we ride the trolley to meet the boy next door.


From there, we will drive to Chicago, Illinois to the suburbs of one Griswold family,

Where we will help solve the problem of Christmas lighting, so ALL can see.


We travel next to New York City where Macy’s on 34th Street is host

To a real Santa who always brings the most.


In addition, a lady and her daughter are always feeling blue

And Kris Kringle restores their attitude with “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”


We stay in the city and visit the Bishop and The Bishop’s Wife

Where we meet the angel, Dudley, who helps everyone remember the big picture of life.


On we go to see George Bailey and another angel, Clarence, in Bedford Falls

Where Clarence helps George realize It’s a Wonderful Life no matter the worst of it all.


We move on to some singing and dancing with Bing and the crew

At Holiday Inn in Midville, Connecticut only open for certain holidays of the few.


We remain in this state and end up on Elizabeth Lane’s enchanting, magazine ready farm,

Where we are hoping for a Christmas in Connecticut with all the glee and charm.


We arrive in technicolor at Columbia Inn in Pine Tree, Vermont to finish out our traveling list,

Surprised there is no snow, only to be enchanted on the 25th with a White Christmas.


There is so much to glean from these movies of old,

Love your family and friends without being told.


Taking this electronic journey is a feat, both great, and not small!

Please take it sometime, and Merry Christmas to one and to all!






The Giving Season


Every year the season nears

When family and friends find gifts for each other.

Some are funny, some are sweet, and some are sentimental bringing tears,

But some are practical for Father, Mother, Sister, and Brother.


Receiving candy, games, and toys

The newest technology so bold

Are the items that are dreamed by girls and boys,

Even for those who are older might think of trinkets in silver and gold.


Just remember the gifts you have already been given:

Family and friends, a home with comfort and love,

Life and health to keep you driven,

Nothing you would ever want to destroy.


These are the passions in life to keep forever

In your mind, your heart, and your soul.

For when they are gone, the tangible gifts become a feeling of “whatever.”

Only wishing to bring them back in exchange for all that was given as a willing toll.


Please remember the Giving Season is more about who is in your life,

Not about the items you own.

Cherish those you hold dear through the amazing times and even strife;

It will give you the feeling of peace you have never known.
