ANd now…one of those amusing little stories that mothers always seem to tell about their children.Usually when the child is old enough to be squirmingly embarassed!

Long ago, in a Big City department store, a little girl sat in Santa’s lap and told him what she would like for Christmas. He promised to do his best and asked if she would leave a slice of cake and a bottle of beer out for him. Little girl said,very primly: “We don’t have beer at our house. But I’ll leave you a glass of fruit salts!”

Today, I do have beer, but no chimney!

Work calls…
