Traditional carols

It was our pleasure to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary in a most memorable way. My wife, De, and I were engaged the weekend that President Kennedy was assassinated. We married a month later on Dec. 20.

On the evening of Dec. 20, we attended a music program by the Dickens Carolers at the Chestnut Fine Arts Center. This group of eight singers delivered a wonderful hour and a half program of Christmas music. We will always remember this event on a most memorable date.

In this day of “political correctness” it was nice to hear the traditional Christmas music of our growing-up years.

My birthday is on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

What really keeps me from going back to the Church is that they've crapped up the Baltimore Catechism. I was really upset to find that Jan. 1, though still a Holy Day of Obligation, is no longer the Feast of the Circumcision. Always fun watching the nuns explain that one to noobs.


You think that's something? My parents were married on D-Day!


My birthdate marks Germany invading Poland. Learned it on a calender when I was 5 or 6 and have never forgotten.


Does anyone else find it odd that Mr. Gehlback links his engagement to a national tragedy?
