Merry Christmas to All...

H’s last day of bell ringing at Wal Mart was last week. He has such confidence when he goes into these things. I know he dreamed of his moment of fame when the mysterious gold coin would appear during HIS stint with the bell. I think he had visions of transforming the entire town into a celebratory scene from a Hallmark card as he stood next to his bright red kettle.
Instead, on his last night, he had to move out of the way to make room for the police and ambulance folks to get inside the building to deal with the woman in the wine aisle who smashed a bottle over a guy’s head.

…and to all a good night.

OK, now that's just a perfect ending to his stint as a bell ringer, especially since he called to volunteer while having a few cocktails.

Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Hey, you just never know what's going to go down at those stores! So, did he get to give a description to the cops of the lady with the smashing issue? Because he could still have been a hero...right?

I love it! Now I finally have a New Year's Resolution - to break a bottle of wine over someone's head at Wal-Mart. Now...if only I knew where to find a Wal-Mart in Minneapolis...Merry Christmas!!
