Subject:  Gotta tell ya
Message:  I played "Santa" OFFICIALLY for the first time for the Clark Chamber of Commerce (last Sunday), and for the Clark Elementary School (lunchtime). Last year, I had a few kids come and hug me --- this year, I had several dozen little munchkins come up to me with a hug and "I love you". To which I could only say ... "Santa loves you, too" with a heartfelt little hug, back.

Gotta tell ya ... My year was made this week. Most kids in town know me as that white-beared guy on South Cloud St., but this time of year, I get transformed into ...... Super Santa !!!

The local newspaper had my mug shot big on FRONT PAGE. Also on Page 2, so I am on 'Cloud 9'.

My father played "Santa" for our small town Moorpark in So. Calif. for over 25 years. My brother has his 'Santa' suit. Guess I am keeping it in the family tradition.

Thank you, Lord. And thank you, little ones, for your unbridled love for ol' Saint Nick.

Yes, Santa loves you, too.
