Job Wanted!

Have you ever helped someone get a job? Papa has a couple of times. A few year ago "Bill" came by and asked papa to "tweak" his resume' on the computer, scan a picture, and then send it on to a prospective employment agency via email. After several weeks of waiting to find out if he got the job he got that call! Very excited! The only problem now was where would he work? Well, not the north Pole, but close! He is employed at one of the large mall's in the area. He works from noon till closing six days a week from the week before Thanksgiving until Christmas eve. He will go to work today and has been doing this job several years. You see, he is Santa Claus! He loves kids! I even found out that Mrs. Claus has a pretty first name - Martha!

I even know what Santa does in the winter, after Christmas! He likes to head for Florida!

Nope, I never thought I would help Santa get a job!

As Santa would say: " HO HO HO! AND HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!" The Santa above would also say: "REMEMBER THE REAL REASON FOR THE SEASON - THE BIRTH OF OUR SAVIOR!"

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - I may go look Santa up and see if I can get that red Vette for Christmas!!

CrossView said...

Great idea! Your sweet wife needs one. Maybe she'll let you ride along! =P

And ask him to send me one. I can't say I've been all that good but I shore would be greatful.... ;o)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Oh no Crossview! The title will say "Indian Lake Papa"!

CrossView said...

Well, of course! You have to fill out the "From:" part. Just don't forget mine. I'd prefer black, by the way. ;o)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Your right Crossview: From: Indian Lake Papa - To: Indian Lake Papa -- Keep it up - your vehicle will be black, but it won't be a Vette!

CrossView said...

Bah Humbug! =P

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - You have a very Merry Christmas! We love you!! SO glad we have met and become family! :o)

Indian Lake Papa said...

Roxx - with Christmas and Thanksgiving so close together we have no excuse to think of our families - this is a special season for families and a time to reach out to others. Thank you so much for your prayers. Just prayed for you as well! Papa xoxoxo

Joanna said...

I'm chuckling at the comments.

I hopped over from Roxanne's blog to say hi. I'm a fellow Michigan blogger and she said we're in the same area. Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Indian Lake Papa said...

Joanna - thanks for stopping by! We are not too far apart. Have a great holiday season!

Ed said...

Papa, It's good you have become good friends with Santa. Maybe he will leave those tickets to Hawaii under your tree.

It is the spirit of Christmas that should count. The way the economy is going can anybody afford presents anyway?

I hope you and Mama have a great Thanksgiving. Don't forget Amos. I know he doesn't eat turkey but he might enjoy some pie.

Indian Lake Papa said...

Ed - yep, I have an 'in' with Santa now. In fact talked to him the other night - so far he has had only one kid upchuck on him - bless him! LOL I may ask for those Hawaii tickets - Amos got extra alfalfa pellets today!! Have a great Thanksgiving!

Char said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Papa and Mama! Can't believe you've gotten a head start on Christmas!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Char - tomorrow we celebrate Christmas as a family because Sunday we head south for the winter - have a happy Thanksgiving!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Crossview - black it is !! How do you spell Hearse?? LOL Have a great day today - God bless!

You spelled "Hearse" correctly. Try spelling "Corvette" or even "Horse"! ;o)

Be safe!
