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 ..
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
