Mr. Fezziweg

Shhhh -- silent night
Dear JJ,

Now I feel as if the season is upon us and I think your life has had a Dicken's of an effect -- in fact, your dad now wants to be Mr. Fezziweg instead of Mr. Scrooge.  I will be reading you that story soon enough- but for years I was more humbug than enjoying the season.

In the story there was one character -- Mr. Fezziweg, who, it was said -- "always had the spirit of Christmas. " Well- now I want to be that person -- the one who enjoys the season- enjoys the company of others - and it wasn't the spirt of Christmas, past, present, or future that brought that to me -- it was you.

thank you, son

Love,

Dad
