Before heading off on vacation, my friend Melanie and I did our traditional Christmas shows on KUCB radio. We've been doing this for a few years now and always have a blast playing lots of holiday tunes and taking requests. It's especially fun when some of our family and friends live stream from elsewhere and we can give them a little shout out and send a dedication. This year we had the additional "fun" of some local pranksters calling us and requesting "Sympathy for the Devil" over and over. I kept saying "We're playing holiday tunes! It doesn't really fit with our theme!" And various people continued to call with the same request. Finally after our last show was over, we queued up the darned song for them. Yes, we know who the culprit was (and he was good at getting lots of people to call and go along with it!) but I will not embarrass him by calling him out in public. :)
We rented three little cottages in Buffalo Gap, down the road from Abilene. It was wonderful to see all the kids and grandkids again! It was a beautiful day so we walked down to the Buffalo Gap Historic Village, where I attempted to get a photo of all six grandkids together. :)
