One of my favorite traditions in the Kamler house is the Sunday after Thanksgiving, we put up our Christmas tree while watching the 1983 classic, “A Christmas Story.” It’s almost hard to believe that story came out thirty years ago and it was a movie that portrayed 1940’s suburban life at Christmas.
Last week, I started contributing a weekly column to the Platte County Landmark under the “Rambling Moron” name. It’s a great Northland Newspaper and well worth a subscription. However, now that I’m in it weekly, I give the paper a week. Â This was my first article and is reprinted here with permission.
