Close to Nowhere
I hate it when Barry’s column coincides with mine. I promise, I’ve not plagarized! I just barely glanced at his before beginning to grind my teeth.
I always like to write my own letter to Santa. I don’t think I’ve missed a year since I began writing my column.
As usual, I want a new Barbie doll. I was kinda worried for a while when the Bratz dolls were so popular. I may be a senior citizen now, but I’ve loved Barbies since they first came out in ’59.
I was the envy of all the girls in my neighborhood, the year my mom bought me a Barbie with three wigs for my birthday! For a long time, she was the best Barbie in my group.
Delories Elliott, who is a doll expert, found me a wigged Barbie when I had my brown recluse spider bite. It cheered me up immensely. I once again have the best Barbie doll of all my friends.
My granddaughters are too old to write letters to Santa anymore. That kinda makes me sad. Teenagers are wonderful, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes, they can be a trial. The youngest granddaughter has been announcing for a couple months now what CDs, etc. that she wants. I wish they would still write letters to you. Maybe I’d have a clue on what to tell you to bring them.
Daughter Dana and I have decided to buy each other Star Trek - The Next Generation DVDs.
We’ve watched the Big Bang Theory while in my sewing room until I got the original Star Trek for my birthday. After Christmas, we’re going to progress to The Next Generation.
Santa, I have no idea what you can bring to Pop and Uncle Kris. As far as I’m aware, they don’t need or want anything. So you think of something wonderful for them and tuck it under the tree! I’d really appreciate that!
Another thing I would really appreciate is to not have “sinus” problems. I’m tired of coughing and hacking and my nose running. Can you handle minor illnesses?
And once again, my major request is not for me. Pageant winners all want world peace. Well, so does the rest of the world. Most of it anyway.
Somewhere in this issue of the paper, someone said they thanked God for world peace. Watching the news this morning, I’m afraid world peace is gonna be a long time coming.
Santa, you fly all over the world in one night. Do you have any magic dust you could sprinkle on this planet as you travel?
I’m guessing all the mothers around the world would be very grateful.
On Facebook, a couple people have questioned whether you exist.
As long as you believe...
