It was ten Christmas Day's ago that Sandy, Susan, Bradley and I lost a part of our hearts, our Mom, Irene, "Reenie". While we remember our Mom [and Pop] everyday, Christmas Day brings a special day of remembrance for Reenie, a Yankee Doodle Dandy, who was born on the 4th of July and died on Christmas day.

|Love you, Reenie |
This Christmas will be the fifth Christmas with our [Sheralyn and my] granddaughter Skye Noelle. We just celebrated Skye's fifth birthday on December 11, 2020. I know Mom and Pop are smiling down in joy at our granddaughter blessing.
|Our precious granddaughter|
While celebrating our granddaughter Skye's fifth birthday and remembering Mom on this Christmas Day as always, Tales wants to wish a very Merry and Blessed Christmas to my wife Sheralyn, and to all of my Christian friends, and to all Christians.
For everyone who celebrates Christmas, here are a few of my favorite Christmas songs that I hope you enjoy. I picked these because they are so, very beautiful.
So, please turn up the volume and enjoy.
O Come All Ye Faithful - Andy Williams:
O Holy Night - Johnny Mathis:
Handel: The Messiah, "The Hallelujah Chorus":
"Do You Hear What I Hear" - Johnny Mathis:
Here is a beautiful song [I understand a recent edition to the Christmas repertoire] I recorded at the "Straight No Chaser" concert my wife and I attended a few months ago [in 2018] in Houston.
