Welcome to Barb's Blog.
I will post weekly (or nearly) some of my opinions, insights, ideas, and adventures about art, travel, plein aire, pastel, and whatever's happening. Join me, feel free to add comments, follow along as I paint and write and explore
Rudolf was still feeling left out. Every morning he was right there
at Santa's pillow. Santa remembered having a dog that licked him in the face every morning.
That was nothing compared to a wet, snotty, reindeer nose!
Blitzen was unhappy with Donner. "He forgot to get his flu shot. And..."
Rudolf felt un-needed, of course.
Santa hid his GPS in his pocket.
But that Rudolf had his nose out of joint was the least of his problems. With Christmas one day away, Blitzen came tattling.
Santa began to worry. He couldn't remember all the addresses he had to deliver presents to in Cincinnati.
Santa grumbled. He hemmed and hawed. After a few weeks of brain games he remembered Cincinnati, but had forgotten Little Rock.
Mrs. Claus gave him a new phone with a GPS.
Rudolf was not happy about that.
Santa was feeling poorly this summer so he went to his doctor. Dr. North recommended exercise and smaller portions.
Santa took his doctor's advice very seriously. He wore out the reindeer practicing his driving. He wore out the elves wanting more and more toys. Finally Mrs. Claus baked him two dozen chocolate chip cookies, three dozen frosted gingerbread cookies and a suite of fruit cakes.
Every thing is back to normal now.
