Santa Half Off

Many years ago, a dear friend (R.I.P. Steve) gave me a "woodland Santa." It has been a treasured part of my holiday decorations ever since.
Last year, I was fortunate to find another beautiful woodland Santa.

This year, I spied a wonderful woodland Santa with a full fluffy beard. I decided I would take my chances and wait until the day after Christmas to try to purchase. Late in the day, I went in to the store and there he was...the last one.
The duggles is a skier, so this Santa is perfect.
Look at that wonderful beard!
I was very excited to find him still in the store. I told the young man at the check-out (high school age?) that I had been all the way to Indianapolis and back to Bloomington and the woodland Santa was still there. The cashier cracked me up when he said "well, yeah. I mean, Christmas is over. I guess there is always next year." It was hilarious because his attitude was
"why wouldn't it still be here? who wants it?"
ME! So, I have another woodland Santa to add to my collection. Happy half-off shopping to you!

...happy, happy, joy, joy!
Don't you just love it when things work out that way?
What do youngsters understand about stuff like this, anyway?
