This was to be a day off for Ella and I. However, around 5:30 this morning, I received a phone call from Charlie, my co-Santa. He was stuck in Amarillo and was not going to make it to the Santa set until well after its scheduled start. I went in and worked from noon until slightly after three o’clock. It was busy, busy, busy. The line(s) never let up, Ella took the day off but did some work around home.
