Last Saturday night things got a bit crazy at the Swails/Wettstone residence. While enjoying holiday libations with friends and family, the jolly old elf himself showed up (complete with elves and trumpet salute). Santa even brought one of his reindeer along. So it was quite spectacular and all were wowed.....until.
As many of you may recall, we have Nimbus the Weather Dog. Nimbus was not quite as smitten over Santa as the guests. He smelled...a holiday hoax. Nimbus trotted alongside Santa as he greeted the guests and at a very delicate moment (Santa was handing out a candy cane), Nimbus struck leaping up and ripping off Santa's beard revealing our very own Terry Swails. Nimbus tried to take the beard outside to further rip it to shreds, but fate in the form of our own Rebecca Kopelman grabbed the beard rescuing it from further annilation.
Terry reapplied the now soggy beard and continued his role as Santa. He was a really good Claus. He played the role with zest and I believe we may see Santa reappear now from time to time.
