We’re Ready Now, Santa!

Did you know that Santa has some helper elves in Florida?  And did you know that Santa’s sun-worshipping assistants are in charge of ensuring that all power yard equipment is properly prepared to celebrate the Yuletide festivities?

It’s true.

On Saturday the 13th, Spouse and I hosted the office Christmas party.  What preceded the party, of course, was a massive clean-up/decorating binge to get the entire nation of Juniorvania ship-shape and ready for its most extensive influx of visitors in recorded history.  Some consternation briefly ensued while Spouse and I debated the most appropriate means of providing a suitable repository for the cold refreshing BEvERageS accompanying our guests to the party.  I am no engineer, but if I do say so myself, I think I resolved that little dilemma with some flair (not to mention ten bags of ice and a couple of strands of lights) in the following manner:

Somehow, word of this festive little piece of power equipment seems to have made it to Santa’s southern associates. Apparently, St. Nick himself was impressed by the tractor’s display of holiday verve, but saddened to learn that the little implement lacked one crucial piece of Christmas gear; he put his Floridian designates on the case and voilà, the tractor is ready to receive Santa’s bounty on the Big Night.

  • Dude,
    You need to hook those lights up to a battery so that you can drive around with them lit up.
    It may be cool to even light your snow blower too.
    Hope your JD stocking is filled with Ted Nugent Biltong, a grease gun, wrenches and chaw (or equivalent).
    See you Xmas Day!
    Merry Christmas

    I love the JD stocking. What every man wants!!!

    All the Best to you Ed and Wendy.


  • I’ll save everybody else the Google search. Nugent, according to tednugent.com:

    “…writes columns regularly for a number of different magazines, and even sells his very own beef jerky (called Gonzo Meat Biltong)! In 2001, the Nuge penned his own autobiography, the perfectly titled God, Guns, & Rock n’ Roll.”

  • Any stocking but that JD stocking leaking copious amounts of black fluid would be suspect. Well, I suppose you could use the traditional red-and-white as long as you put a Massey-Harris (-Ferguson) logo on it.
