A Nice Story

I noticed flashing red lights tonight and looked out my window to see several fire and emergency vehicles outside and at the bottom of my hill. "Oh no," I thought. "Someone slid down the hill and had a terrible accident. And it's only the beginning of the winter. What have I done? I've moved to a frozen wasteland of icy roads and terrifying car wrecks. What am I going to do?!" As I stood at the window watching, the firetrucks began to move slowly up the hill. No wait - an ambulance in front, then a truck pulling a trailer, then a firetruck in back. What's going on?

My street dead-ends on an unplowed dirt road and the trucks had to drive past my house to turn around, then come back down past me again. As the caravan went by on the way up I realized - they weren't carting away broken, bloody bodies at all. IT WAS SANTA CLAUS ON THE FIRETRUCK!!! SANTA!!! SANTA!!!

I ran for my coat, then out onto the back porch to wait for them to head back. Then I waved like an idiot and yelled "Merry Christmas!" as they drove by.

Yippeeee!

....Only one beer. Why do you ask?

sober comment on a neat story: often these sorts of goings around the neighborhood are done as fund raisers. and i do think folks tend to forget about volunteer fire/rescue squads when they are being generous. it's a tax deductible donation. :)

climbing off the soap box now. what a pleasant experience in a small neighborly town. :)

I love it! A similar experience was your cousin's first meeting with Santa, although he was a mere 8 months old... he evengave him a beautiful teddy bear!

Sounds more and more like you picked a good town with a great community!

He's due in this town this weekend. He regularly picks up chunks of coal from me for you-know-who.
It just doesn't seem cold enough, though... Santa in shorts!
