A GREMLINS’ CHRISTMAS

Hardee’s gave these 45’s out (!) with kid’s meals in the 1980’s. I just remembered. Then I realized all of mine were gone. Then I went to you tube. Cheesy but good.

A CHRISTMAS STORY by DAVID SEDARIS

I made my mother listen to this during Thanksgiving Dinner. It worked. Top-notch Sedaris.
