payton-luvz-papa1Payton is barely eight months old, approaching her first Christmas, but she’s already conditioned to the fact that her Papa is a magnificent bull-shooter and yarn spinner, his vivid imagination brimming with sensational details that delight a little girl’s fancy . . . his nonsense notwithstanding, of course.  She’ll grow old enough one day in eighteen or nineteen years to  discern the  bologna from the  real stuff, and that ‘ll be soon enough.  For now, Papa aims to stay in rare form.
