The nursery I work in has a festive air on the weekends no through Christmas. Minature-horse-drawn carriage rides, live llamas, chestnuts (roasted on an open fire, no less), free chili samples, an elaborate Santa House, with Santa in residence from 12-4 in the afternoons, and tiny carosel ride for little ones, etc. (and of course, thousands of trees, all kinds, all sizes). So yesterday, I slipped in during a lull and sat on Santa's lap and asked for a working furnace for Christmas. (mine stopped heating March 4 last spring - I keep meaning to crawl down there and look at it - prolly something simple...ignitor, blower, etc., but I keep putting it off, other than having checked out a bunch of fix-it-yourself books on major appliances from the library. We've been heating with the woodstove, and the kitchen oven- with lots of baking - which has been fine for the cold nights) Well, today, "Gary" called, and said Santa told him I needed help - and he's coming to Dx the furnace on tuesday - no charge! Well, heck - if he's not Santa, then it's got a hotline to the real deal! OMG!!
