Merry Christmas

Before we all go off to the land of endless sugar and tinsel, I just wanted to send a great big hug to every single one of you. You have no idea how often I think of you. No, really! I consider you my friends and acquaintances and I think of you often. Blogging has become very special to me since I started several years ago. Whenever I start to feel like there is no good left in this world, most often it is your blogs and sweet comments that revive my faith humanity. And I need that.

I had to share this tattooed Santa with you because I absolutely love it! I wish I could credit the original artist, but my links just take me so far. This is exactly how I would like to imagine Santa. Maybe a retired sailor. Maybe owns a motorcycle. Has a beer with his elves when he gets home from delivering gifts. I can just see him grab a kid up and grind his knuckles into their mop of hair. What do they call that? A noogie? Regardless. I would say that he is a no nonsense kind of guy, with a soft spot for puppies and cookies. This is my kind of Santa.

Well, until the hustle and bustle subside, I'll be wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas.

I missed this post! What a brilliant image of Santa. I love the idea that he had a completely different life prior to becoming the gift-giving guy of Christmas. Brilliant.
