a tradition from the past

this is the cover of the album I used to listen to every Xmas in Elyria.  it's a pair of 45s so I no longer have a way to play it. but I can still hear Lionel Barrymore. he was neither the actor nor the looker his brother John was. & watching his movies today he usually was heavy on the ham. but to a boy he was the perfect Scrooge.  & it was a joy to have him there every 25th.
