Congratulations to all the winners!!!

Our “Christmas” Tournament will start this week. We have 22 teams signed up so we’re looking forward to some good Fun!!! Because so many people now say “Happy Holidays” instead of “MERRY CHRISTMAS”, I decided to change my tournament to the Christmas Tournament instead of Holiday Tournament. (I personally think that our country is going the wrong way when it comes to Christmas. No more Christmas Concerts!!! Now they have Holiday Concerts. Give me a break!!!) When people say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” it’s just not the same. As Earl Pitts would say: “WAKE UP AMERICA.” OK enough of that!!

Back when:

1978 – Song of the Day: “The Gambler” – Kenny Rogers

1843 – “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens was published in London and immediatly sold out.

1954 – WEAU – TV Eau Claire, Wis. began broadcasting. One of the first well known personalities was “Sheriff Bob” Dawson who hosted the kids from the 1950s-1960s.

1979 – Stan Barrett broke the Sound Barrier, reaching 739.6 miles per hour on land.

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “What do you think this is Mary…Christmas!!” BeeBoop!
