My mountain home,
Is always so quite.
But last night,
I had such a fright.
A knocking at my door at One A.M.
OMG, who died?
I went downstairs in my robe to find,
A bearded man with someone behind.
I said, "Hello, what can I do for you."
"Ya got a room for me and my crew?"
I turned on the outside light,
And oh good gosh, what a sight.
A lady, a few Elves and several horned animals,
Oh yeah, and a sleigh.
He said. "We always stop in this area,
To take a break each year.
On our way headed down South,
So put your tounge back in your mouth."
I asked, "Why'd you choose my house this year?"
"Because these mountains to you are so dear,
We came in,
To welcome you here."
He had some brandy, and Mrs santa, or Betty, had some brownies.
So me and Santa
Laughed and told stories all night.
The Elves and reindeer stayed in the guest room.

|Sorry pal, on his way out of my place, I mentioned your new place, but I told him to call first.
And save that reindeer poop piling up in your guest room. It will make marvelous fertilizer in your spring garden.

|I believe it! Ever since you moved to the mountains a bearded man came asking about you.
This is a delight Walt! You nailed the atmosphere and even the reindeer smell. Hope the guest room gets a cleaning before my visit in the fall.:~)
