“The big question is whether you are going to say a hearty yes to your adventure.”
~ Joseph Campbell
I’m not sure what Dad asked for, but Santa looks a little surprised and Mrs. Claus looks plum tickled. Maybe it was just the fact that a 77 year old man had the nerve to sit on Santa’s lap. Whatever the case, everybody in the room was snapping pictures. Originally, Dad thought he would be playing Santa. Somehow the bank convinced him that they’d rather hire a professional. Of course, he didn’t know it was because it was his retirement party. He was looking forward to playing Santa. Nevertheless, when the chance came along to be a big kid, he did not hesitate to play the role. He loves the bank Christmas parties, and I don’t believe I’ve ever seen him as happy as he was that night.
