Boy, Christmas is really creeping up on us! Only 7 days left. Hope you've done all your shopping. We've had a lot of help from our "Brick & Mortar" friends as well as our internet buddies! Everyone is offering the DEAL OF A LIFETIME! Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now Green Tuesday??? What the heck?
I Remember when, as kids, we would get a Sears toy catalogue. Christmas lists were composed mostly of toys from that catalogue. It really made things simpler for Mom and Dad. One trip to Sears and the shopping was done. All that was left was wrapping the presents. We were happy!!! Simpler times!

William Edward "Little Willie" John (November 15, 1937 – May 26, 1968) was an American rock 'n' roll and R&B singer who performed in the 1950s and early 1960s. He is best known for his successes on the record charts, with songs such as "All Around the World" (1955), "Need Your Love So Bad" (1956), and "Fever" (1956). An important figure in R&B music of the 1950s, John was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
"Blue Bayou" is the title of a song written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson. It was originally sung and recorded by Orbison, who had an international hit with his version in 1963. It later became Linda Ronstadt's signature song, with which she scored a charting hit with her cover of "Blue Bayou" in 1977. The song has since been recorded by many other artists over the years.
"Welcome Back" is a popular record that was the theme song of the 1970s American television sitcom, Welcome Back, Kotter. Written and recorded by former Lovin' Spoonful frontman John Sebastian, it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for one week in May 1976 after only five weeks on the chart, and also topped the adult contemporary chart. (The show itself had become an instant ratings success upon its premiere the previous fall.) It also reached #93 on the country chart.
