Ho, ho, ho!


Look who I ran into today!
I was out junkin’ ... and stopped the car when I saw this 
HUGE vintage Santa sitting by the side of the road. 
{I’m a sucker for Santa!}

“How much is he,” I asked.
“Twenty-five cents” was the reply.
“Twenty-five CENTS?!!”
When she saw my incredulous face, she amended her offer ... “Okay, 50 cents?”
“I’ll take him for a quarter,” I sheepishly responded.

I plopped him in the front passenger seat ... and we headed home.
You should have seen the strange looks I received!
Then ... thinking about how silly I must look made me giggle!
And that, my friends, was worth every cent I paid for Santa!!

Hope you have a happy day ... and weekend, too!
