 Well tonight was the 4H fashion review and the theme was ,a rock and roll Christmas. All the kids got to model what they had made in the sewing classes to tunes from the 50s. Old St. Nick was a surprise guest . Unfortunately his grand entrance was foiled by the rec. center director and he did not get to ride his Harley up to the stage. Guess none of the kids mind that he had to arrive via the mens room and he was very glad that that was the starting place, if you know what I mean. He did have on his Harley boots though. I have it on good authority that he was a bit worried about his old aching knee giving out on him as he climbed the stage steps  to take his seat in the rocking chair, but all went well and he did not fall on his Ho Ho Ho. Yes, Old St. Nick has crohns.  Oddly the poor old guy bears a striking resemblance to yours truly too, and Mrs Claus is a ringer for my wife. No one would ever guess That Mrs Claus was hiding the fact that she is undergoing chemo ,under her frilly hat either. I for one thought she looked fetching in her long red skirt, apron and knee high boots, but then ,I may be a bit partial. 
 The show went well and all the kids , and parents, had a good time, but old Santa split like the place was on fire when the local news paper people showed up for close up pictures. Think he said something like Ho Ho Ho no when he saw they coming. Guess hes a bit camera shy. The truth is, he just isn't the saint they think he is. Man, if they only knew..Anyway I for one am glad its over. Now I can trim my beard shorter so when I am riding my bike it does not fly up my nose. I wonder if old St Nick has that problem ..

What a fantastic feeling for you and "mrs. Claus" to have brought a ton of joy and excitement to all those kids.

Good for you both, that you are able to put aside what you both are dealing with and bring joy to others.

Well done.

Thanks guys, it was fun doing this and yes I do have pics if I can remember how to post them .Must warn you though it may ruin everyone's perception of the old elf. We are trying to boost participation in this program. There were only about 20 entries this year but we have had some favorable responses from parents that saw the show,and other that have seen the pictures and story in the paper. We may have more next year. The kids worked very hard, even the small ones that made aprons. I am especially proud of them. Wish I could show you how cute they were on stage posing. Some are very shy, but did well on stage.

you take the beard, divide it in two under the chin. braid each side and but a bell on the end. when riding the bells will give just enough weight to keep the tips blowing up under your ears and give music at the same time.

or do the dividing, wax it up real good and point the tips forward and see how many bugs you can spear!

Rando, your just full of good ideas,, or ,,um,,maybe just full of it ??? Any thoughts on how I can get my beard to work its way to the top of my head ? Its sorta sparse up there. Any way ,if anything needs waxing I know where to start.

Sniper,

I hope Santa isn't lactose intolerant and diabetic, too, with all the milk and cookies he eats on Christmas Eve!! Sounds like you two had a great time!

Please post some photos on our photobucket.com page. It's really easy to do! The user name is crohnsdisease and the password is 6mp3asa.
