Bill = Santa?

Since my beard turned white (I think that was only last year? NOT) I had generally allowed it to grow and flourish as Christmas approached each year. When we would go shopping I would wear one of the red sweaters Phyllis had purchased for me and must admit that I did somewhat resemble the Jolly Old Elf - especially when viewed from the perspective of a child. Often young children would come up to me in Costco and ask, "Are you are the real Santa?"

Bill as Santa

One day near the holidays we were having lunch in a restaurant in Kentucky with my elderly aunt and her daughters. As a small child walked past our table, he exclaimed in a loud voice, "Santa, I ate all my vegetables!"

Ah, the joys of being mistaken for the real thing.
