It’s great to hear that my Uncle Stan will be bringing his new Vandoren saxophone with him tomorrow. For a while he was concerned that he wouldn’t be able to bring it on the flight from Vermont to the airport here because of all of the weight limits and restraints that have been placed on today’s air travelers. I’m glad that at the last minute he decided to send his new saxophone in the mail to my mother’s house so that he could bring everything that he wanted and needed to make his Christmas visit at the old homestead a good and memorable one.
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without the family playing their favorite Christmas music, as they have been doing since before I was brought into this world. Even though many of them have either passed away or moved away, we still manage to pull it all together so that we can experience all the music and fun that our family has depended on to keep the Christmas spirit alive and well.
