Santa Claus is coming to town. Yes, we can now start singing along with the Yuletide tunes playing over every store speaker.

Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

Dear Grandmother, Why didn’t you tell me your life was hard? Why didn’t you complain about spending years in a wheelchair when you could no longer use your crutches or leg brace to get around?
