Santa Has Been Busy

There has been quite a few things going on lately. As I had said before I am co-chair of the workshops committee for the First Convention of AORBS (Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santa's) So I have been talking to a lot of other Jolly Old Elfs (JOE'S) Our convention will be in Branson Missouri July 6th through the 9th. We are anticipating 350 to 500 Real Bearded Santa's.
We are having a parade through Branson all Santa's & Mrs. going through town at 7:00a.m. It is that early for 2 reasons if we wait any later Santa's would be dropping like flies in their suits because of the heat. The other is they are looking for the morning news programs to pick it up. That should be quite a site to see all that red and white.

That is going to be a busy week due to Santa-America will be doing their training sessions starting 2 days ahead of the AORBS Convention that way more Santa's will be able to do both.

There are still some other exciting things going on as well. One of which is that this blog could end up being the basis for a book that I have been asked to write. Of course whatever names I use will have to be changed to protect the guilty.

Then I have a new wonderful friend in Arizona that is working on some other things that will enhance my Santa duties. When I can tell everyone about it this will be the first place the news will come out.

People are actually starting to send comments and I am trying to figure out how to get them to come up automatically so that everyone can check them out. So keep those comments coming I enjoy being able to read them.

It has been a long time

I guess it has been a long time since I have posted here. I have been busier than I thought. I had the opportunity to visit my #1 elf at college this last weekend and he has decided that he is not going to major in music education. He put me into shock when he said he wanted to major in Pastoral studies. He feels that he is being called to become a Pastor.

Well I have been working on some other new things and when it is finalized this is where it will be heard first. I am not sure how long it will take though. A lot of what I am working on has to do with this blog though.
