A July Visitor

July 23, 2012
I think with all this talk of Christmas in July on the blogs and in the retail community, someone's ears were burning!

I looked out onto my deck, and I had company...

Sorry Santa, I know it's hot, but we don't have a pool!

I offered him a chair on the deck in the shade.

He sure seemed to be looking for some mischief. I don't know how he got my address, no fun here!

What a surprise to see two reindeer grazing on our front lawn (brown as it is), and tethered to the dog tie out!

Get under the shade tree out there, guys!

I guess Santa decided he missed the house with the pool party, so he settled in a chair by the table under the pergola. I offered him a cold drink.

Pretty soon he was all business again, working on his Christmas list!

I hope you enjoyed my "July Visitor" post starring my childhood Santa and reindeer copyright 1959 Columbia Toys.

  4. Okay, now I want to know how you did this without your neighbors calling to see if you're suffering from heatstroke!!! Too funny! I would have to do this in the middle of the night and then somebody would probably call the police!

    I think I have the same Santa, but I'm definitely in need of some of those funky reindeer!
