Peppermint, Santa, and Me

Day 22: Peppermint

I love peppermint. My favorite tea? Peppermint. My favorite chewing gum? Peppermint. Life Saver? Pep O Mint. Soap? Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Peppermint. (All one! All one! (IYKYK)) This time of year brings a plethora of peppermint. So far, I've tried the Wendy's peppermint Frosty - delicious. Zwahlen's, our chocolate and ice cream emporium, released their peppermint stick ice cream yesterday - superb. Finally, today's delightful cube of chewiness was peppermint! It was, of course, terrific.

I have enjoyed seeing my lovely friends post pictures with Santa. So, in the spirit of the season, I post a very old and faded shot of me with Santa. It was 1978 and I was performing at a local mall, just kind of strolling and juggling and meeting and greeting. Santa was a friendly fellow about my age and we struck up a conversation and having the picture done was a natural outcome. So here you go.
