Santa’s elves did an advance trip!   1 comment


The usual gift for kids for Hanukkah are chocolate coins wrapped in ‘gold’–see below for the story–but Santa’s elves (their names are Chuck & Terry) in Memphis did better than that by stopping here at Gateway in Fort Lauderdale and, via UPS, sent me a package of various chocolates, mainly dark chocolate which, as we all know, is healthy for you!

They are in various forms from a tree to bells not to forget a Santa lollipop! My favorite is the 3rd one in the picture –a dark chocolate pig!!

Oh yes, coming from Memphis how can there not be TWO Elvis bars–one milk chocolate and the other dark chocolate!The elves think I am going to blame them for any weight gain I have in December but I know all these chocolate treats are non-caloric!!

A bonus was the wrappings in the package which was “The Best of Memphis–2020” from the newspaper. Granted it has been 41 years since I lived in Memphis BUT I didn’t know a single place except for the Memphis Zoo!!

Now I can’t wait to see what Santa is bringing me–guess it pays to be a good boy!! Truthfully the epidemic has more to do with that than my not being able to misbehave!

  1. Boxes full of chocolate are a beautiful thing.
