FOLLOW UP: What was your worst Christmas ever?
A: Yes, on board ship-I was in the Navy. It was 1974, our home port was Guam. Our department did what they could to make it lively.
GOOD BYE: The last one I spent with my daughters knowing that the next year I would be gone.
A: Ya, eating biscuits and gravy and drinking beer on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. We danced all night long.
MEMORIES: The Christmas after my nephew died.
A: Las Vegas. We met my grandparents at the Circus Circus in Las Vegas. My grandparents gambled and my brother and I spent $300 in the arcades.
ON THE ROAD: I''ve had some good Christmases, but we had to drive to Arkansas once for Christmas.
