I'd Know You Anywhere......

Today I was at the Salvation Army store in Livonia and I bumped into this guy. It went like this...

Me: My, My, I haven't seen you in I bet about twenty years. You are looking really good!

Santa: I feel great, I've been living with some nice people who took really good care of me. However, they are moving this year so I was sent here to be with some of my old friends and help out the Salvation Army.

Me: It's so good to see you again...would you like to go to Tim Horton's for some coffee and then to my house. I have some friends who would like to see you too, Barb and Jackie, remember them?

Santa: Sure do, are they still making stuff?

Me: They are, and I have more friends now who appreciate handmade Santas like you. I'll put you on my blog so lots of them can see you. So let's go....Ho, Ho, Ho......

This is the end of the story but we left together, after all, I made him...all those years ago.
No way was I leaving him behind.

I'm so glad you found him and took him home again. That is a Christmas miracle for sure.
