Janet - the problem, I believe, is that Santa is figuring out how to get the reindeer to run on Biodiesel!
That "eight (deer) power)" might need some extra "umph" for making the flight. Besides, I think he has a bid out to various hitch manufactures to figure out who makes the best sway control for inflight towing.
And on a related note.... my little daughter (quite out of the blue mind you), said "I think we should put Beer out for Santa!" Were you guys talking to her at the rally? We told her Santa couldn't drink and drive.
I REALLY hope Santa grants your wish..... otherwise, I think Gary better start working some more OT!
