Later in the week, we'll be visiting some other dear ones: the folks and reindeer and llamas and The Jolly Bearded One himself at Santa's North Pole Workshop near Pike's Peak. I visited the park for my book back in 2009. This summer, their future was in peril due to the tremendous wildfires that ravaged the area. I promised myself - and well as made an on-line declaration - that I would visit the area very soon. I'm making good on that promise.
Plus, I really need to have a convo with St. Nick about Christmas gifts. Not really the ones I want for me, but the ones I want for others. Turns out, three out of my 6 numbers for Powerball came up, but that only nets me seven bucks. I'm sure the Jolly Old Elf will figure out a way for a big win by Christmastime. I have lots of people to help. And that includes a number of vintage parks.

And that means you two! I'm counting on you to remember me and looking forward to our heartfelt reunion!
