my father’s favorite gig

My father loved playing Santa Claus. Here he is back in the 90’s, greeting the crowds assembled at the local mall the day after Thanksgiving.

He arrived by helicopter that year.

“Don’t tell your mother,” he begged. His usual transportation was a fire truck, but when the opportunity arose to arrive by copter he just couldn’t resist. My mother never knew.

Dad loved children, so being Santa at various venues was right up his alley. Can you tell?
