“I am from Wisconsin. I am a cheesehead.”

“I have lived in Daphne for 4 years.”

“But her heart is still in Wisconsin.”

“No mom, my heart is not in Wisconsin. I haven’t lived there in 30 years.”

“My favorite Christmas memory with my mom was the Christmas dresses she made us wear. She said I looked good in red and my sister looked good in yellow and she made sure we wore those colors. It influenced me because I still wear red. My favorite Christmas present was a pair of skates and a spirograph. I think we got those the same year.”

“That was the winter your dad was in Vietnam. I ask myself why wasn’t I more worried when he was gone, but it was such a relief not to have to put up with him. If we wanted to go to the movies, we went to the movies, If we wanted to go to the beach, we got in the car and went to the beach.”

“Dad was too ornery to have anything happen to him.”

“Her brother, my son, died the day after Christmas when he was 27, so Christmas has been a hard time for me.”

“This year, we aren’t going to have that. It is going to be Christmas trees, church, loud little kids running around and too much to eat.
