Utah Patrol Trooper and State Rep. Lee Perry shares the joys and challenges of being a trooper during the holiday season. Perry discusses holiday memories with State Auditor John Dougall and Salt Lake City Councilman Charlie Luke. Perry encourages listeners to watch the CHP’s video representation of retired Ohio State Trooper Bob Welsh’s touching poem, “My Christmas Eve” (https://youtu.be/Yt83CS1DxGI). Buckle up for Christmas!
Dougall and Luke then talk about favorite family traditions and how the unique events are most memorable, not the perfect ones. Dougall shares a tale of returning from a sledding trip coming off Mt Hood when the family’s van gas pedal stuck down while full or children caroling. Luke shares John Steinbeck’s letter about two Christmases. http://www.lettersofnote.com/2012/12/america-is-like-that-second-kind-of.html
