    For the first time in 34 years Ernie and I will be alone on Christmas Eve.
    This year is going to be a little different. My son, Seth, who lives in Florida, will not be coming home for Christmas.
    Instead, he will be Christmassing with his girlfriend’s family and then coming to Kentucky in January for a friend’s wedding.
