The Ghost of Christmas Presents Past

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 Written by

‘Tis the season for the ghost of Christmas presents past to come and visit me once again. It started a couple of weeks ago while I was attending an orientation for volunteers for the Festival of Trees. We were playing games and the coordinator inquired about our favourite Christmas present. In a flash, my mind raced back to 1965. While watching the Friendly Giant, a Hasbro toy commercial came on. Who cared that it was 20 below outside and the winds were howling with the snow swirling across our front lawn, my nose was now about six inches away from our black and white RCA counsel television and the only thing I could imagine was the colour of the snow cone maker machine. It had to be at least two feet tall, cause it covered the whole screen. I imagined a bright red hat complete with syrup squirters. It had to be cherry flavour or maybe it came with grape – who cared! I could imagine my delight in making those snow cones and devouring them one by one...

And now the long-awaited continuation…

 

Phase Three

As I said last time, I was raised listening to Rock and Roll. My big brother was a record collector and had 45 records and 33 albums with a mono speaker record player.

When I was 14 years old, my cousin Doug began to play electric guitar and formed a rock and roll band. He encouraged me to buy an electric guitar. Without hesitation, I began saving my money for this musical purchase. Living on a farm 40 km. out of town, Mom bought many things from the Sears catalogue. That is where I bought my first musical instrument. It was a combo Silvertone electric guitar and amp for one hundred dollars. Back in 1968, that was a big purchase for me. The first song I learned to play and sing was “Massachusetts” by the Bee Gees.

The Cold and the Snow

Friday, December 1, 2017 Written by

 

I sometimes get cold. Well, I often get cold. My feet, hands and nose are usually the first things I notice to be cold. During the day, while I’m here at the Cathedral at work, it doesn’t seem to matter how many times I get up from the desk and go here or there, I usually find that by mid afternoon, some part of me is cold. To combat this trend, I brought a blanket from home which now lives on the back of my chair. It does a good job of keeping my back and legs warm, but this doesn’t help enough to warm my hands, head, neck and feet – and it won’t help like that unless I wrap myself up in the blanket like a cocoon… which isn’t the best thing to do if I need to answer the phone or greet someone who approaches my desk...
