“I have no desire to suffer twice, in reality and then in retrospect.”
(The very unhappy Mayor and Sheriff with a wary poor Santa)
Have you ever seen such a terrible sight…
…as two miserable Christmas tykes?
(think three blind mice tune)
Given that this year is 2020…
and since we’ve now all learned the hard way, all too often, that if it can go wrong, it will…
my daughter in law got on the ball early and found a most wonderful photographer,
along with his trusty sidekick Santa, for both the Mayor and Sherrif to visit.
And given that none of us really know what visiting Santa will look like this year,
she went ahead and booked a time slot a few weeks back.
I think this Santa / photographer duo was smart in getting a jump start on the season…
what with a global pandemic and the perils of social distancing and, Heavens forbid,
a “shut down” of Santa—and so for our small clan, it was full-on HO HO HO time!
It was time to throw caution to the wind…
Forget Black Friday (yes, please forget Black Friday oh ye consumer-driven)
Heck, forget Labor day…
Santa Claus is coming to town…or so we hope!
Yet despite all the best-laid plans…
The Mayor and Sheriff just weren’t having it.
And Santa was feeling the pain.
However, like many of us this year, I think they each finally resigned themselves that
this too shall pass…or so we hope!
Kudos to both this Santa and photographer…
I heard there had been a set of infant triplets just before our
‘oh so happy’ duo that were absolutely horrified over the whole prospect of visiting Santa!
Yep, this too shall pass
For I am about to create new heavens
and a new earth;
the former things shall not be remembered
or come to mind.
