I've just read Red Rose Alley's post on Christmas music.
And while I love the traditional carols, and some of the new Christmas music,
there is always a place in my heart for one album that just makes Christmas Christmas.
by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton
We found this tape...yes I said tape, when we first moved overseas
and it came to be the rallying point for my little family when we were alone for the holidays.
From Japan, to Atlanta (yes the USA is a foreign land for Canadians!)
to Bangkok, to London...
...each Christmas we spent away from family and sometimes each other,
this silly, funny music would bind our hearts.
So this year...Miami daughter and her husband...and the 'kids' (their dog and cat)
are going to be wending their way north just under a week from now and as soon as we all meet up with my Toronto daughter and her man in my kitchen, because that's where we always meet up...you can rest assured
Kenny and Dolly will be part of the reunion.
