Gold, Frankincense, and Dylan

As part of my father's Christmas gift, I'm making him a CD. I'm noting it here, so that years from now, I'll be able to look back and remember my moment of gift-giving brilliance. I'm telling you, if those wise men had been wiser men, this is what they would have brought the baby Jesus--a lovely collection of scotch and cigar music.

Dive, do you say that because of the songs, or because I like you?

I sometimes get a hankering for Lyle and I can't shake it until I listen to Joshua Judges Ruth....

This is a fabulous, creative and thoughtful gift for your Dad, T. He will just love it; almost as much as he loves you.
