The Shepherd, a Christmas Tale

I've set the time for the takeoff time of the Vampire.[1]

I wish you and yours a Happy Christmas. Please do your part to say safe and around for your friends and family.

[1] Warbird nerds are aware that the DeHavilland Vampire was long obsolete as a fighter by 1957. It had been replaced by its swept-wing sibling, the Venom and by 1957, the Hawker Hunter.

A Christmas tradition in my house. Christmas night just the wife, the dogs, and me. A fire, the lights out and we listen to this.

I have the book, I read it every Christmas Eve after the evening meal. I ought to add "The Spirit of Steamboat" into it.
