My Christmas list is being published in newspapers in north central Vermont. I hate to play rough, but if by any chance you're unable to pull through with any of my listed requests, I'm not saying I would, but I could have that little bit of information published too. I won't even mention I appear weekly on a morning radio show that consistently boasts the highest ratings in all of Vermont. It's just food for thought and not meant to put more pressure on you than I'm sure you already have, what with the economy being what it is and folks everywhere going more heavy on the, Give Me Give Me.
I hope you and Mrs. Claus are well and were able to get away at some point during your 364 days off. I was glad while visiting Vegas this summer to have heard rumor you and Mrs. S. were there also, staying at the Belagio. I trust you knew well enough to go heavy on the sunscreen.
Say hey to the Elves and Reindeer (I've always wondered Santa, the names by which we know them, Comet, Blitzen, Dasher, ... are those their last, or first names?), and be very safe out there on Christmas Eve. You are quite a guy.
P.S. Please go easy on the coal at the White House, it's his last Christmas in office and I'm not so sure this whole huge mess we're in is entirely his fault.
Rusty's Christmas List
1.Darn Tough socks, 1 pair, with Darn Tough, that's all you need.
2.The ability to feel less scorn toward drivers ahead of me who nearly stop before turning from the main road.
3. A long, wet, French kiss, under the mistletoe.
4. This June, ship me several bushels of organic kale. It's probably nasty tasting stuff, but I have a feeling it's going to be the "In" thing this summer.
