Santa's Village

Well we have to drive to the North Pole for this holiday tradition. 
Not really, just twenty miles north of us.
Then we have to find the walking bridge to get us over the waterfalls.
Found It!
Usually we go at night when all the lights are on.
But since Lee's camera does not do nights we came right before dusk.
Yep it is Santa's Village and I, Sweet William The Scot, am here to talk to Santa Paws.
First I checked in with the Post Office to get his address.  They directed me on down the road.
Well here is Licorice Livery.  Yep I can smell this is where Santa Paws keeps his tiny reindeer.
The reindeer are out hope that means Santa Paws is not with them.
This sure looks like a nice home.  Wonder if Santa Paws lives here?
Looking in the door doesn't show anybody around.
O.K. I'm a Peeping Tom.  Look at all those nicely wrapped presents under the tree.  Somebody who lives here has been good and they didn't even lock their door.
O.K. where is everybody.  No one home here either.
I can see through the window and all the presents are still wrapped.
Ye Olde Cocoa Shoppe.
Darn it is getting cold and we need something warm to drink.
Finally someone working.  I'll go around to the front door.  Maybe the elf can tell me where Santa Paws is.

Well no one is answering the door!
I'm going to the other side to look in.
Well it looks like the elfs are starting to take down the decorations and Christmas was just yesterday.
Didn't he ever hear of the twelve days of Christmas?
Well the Candy Cane Shop is the last place Santa Paws might be, maybe it is open.
Nope closed also.
Santa's village is working on a skeleton crew or migrant immigrant elfs from the South Pole.
I think the regulars all headed South for the winter.  Santa Paws is having himself a nice warm vacation.  Santa Paws is a Snowbird he is one who travels to warm climes for the winter.
Jeez I'm disappointed I didn't get to talk to Santa Paws.

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

  4. Santa is out trying to find the Bengals' playoff hopes.

  5. That's a great village...wonder where everyone went? Maybe you can talk to Santa next year.

  6. Wills, what a great village. Perhaps Santa and his staff are holidaying in FIJI after all of that work in a very short period. Who could blame them for having a cocktail or two. Thanks for all your work

  7. Well the village is pretty but No Santa? WTF William!
    Toodle pip!

  8. What an adorable village, William, and you had it all to yourself! Bummer that Santa wasn't there.
