Sleigh Ride

I put together a new playlist of Christmas music the other day to accompany my walking.  As usual I got carried away and put in way too much.  But then there’s so much to choose from.  How can you leave any of it out?

So I started my first Christmas music walk with my iPod on shuffle and this is the first to come up:

What could be better?  Horses neighing, sleigh bells, snow, John Williams and the Boston Pops.

That brought to mind a favorite commercial from the eighties.

It’s a beer commercial.  Maybe the horse knows the way home.

And that brought to mind another commercial from the sixties.  ( You can find anything on YouTube.  I think the signing of the Declaration of Independence is on there somewhere.)

We knew the Christmas season was in full swing when we saw the Norelco commercial.

When you’re old everything was better back then.  Books, movies, TV, music.  Well, the music really was better.

I didn’t mean for this to be about the old days of TV commercials.  It was supposed to be about my playlist.  I’ll get back to that.

To be continued.



About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
