They follow this man around who transforms himself to becoming Santa. Others are interviewed as well and some history about Santa. I loved it! It's available on Netflix, if you have it. That is where I watched it.



I'll look for that, thanks!

It sounds similar to a movie that was discussed on one of the podcasts. There was an interview with the writer of a movie called "They Wore the Red Suit", or something like that. It's supposed to be a documentary about the people who become professional Santas. I've been looking forward to that one, too.

I will check out that book. Sounds interesting. When I tore more than one ligament in my foot, the pain was so horrendous. I ended up with surgery and was in a cast for about three months and then a boot for about three more. Not fun, but today I am pain-free in my foot. Then the following year, I did the same thing to my right foot.

I also started reading my next book it is called "How Mrs Claus Saved Christmas" by Jeff Guinn, it is the sequel to The Autobiography of Santa Claus. It is good so far, I am only 10 or so pages in. I realized it was a year ago today I ruptured the ligament in my foot, it was only a few weeks ago that the lingering pain finally went away.

Have a great night everyone!

How has your week back at school been, Coach? My kids have been pretty good, and they don't even know I am retiring!!! I will let them know just as soon as I meet with CalSTRS and get the final date.

Be sure to let us know how the half dose works, CM3. Thinking of you and Wish today!

As an update on Wish, He seems to be feeling good today and did yesterday too. I spoke with the vet about stopping the Benazepril and he told me some information about the drug I did not know. It is the drug that keeps Wish from having abnormal heart rhythms which could be deadly. For now, I am going to try just cutting the dose in half. I guess we will go from there.

I hope everyone has peaceful, restful Christmassy dreams.

I have one of those, believe it or not, but no screen. If I use it, I have to erase the board of all the info, which is a bummer!!!

I was hoping to read an update on Wishbone. I have been thinking of him & you CM3.

hey y'all! I don't ever seem to find time to come here anymore. not sure what I'm dealing w/ but I am physically worn out, every part of my upper body hurts. I have got to get this under control.... I hope everyone is well & safe. happy Friday everyone!
