Santa’s got a brand-new ride …


… even though he still likes to hang out with the reindeer because he’s an old softie.

I managed to get in a petite walk this morning, and, I decided it’s a good thing I took some photos of holiday décor back in early December, since I never made it back to Emmons Boulevard after my last walk on December 8th.  At least the weather might get milder, and the ice will melt, so I’ll attempt a jaunt or two in the next few days (hopefully).

I saw this Ho-Ho-Helicopter parked on a homeowner’s front lawn and decided it must be Santa’s Plan “B” for when there is not enough snow to land the sleigh and his nine tiny reindeer.

So, that got me thinking … is Santa’s more-modern ride electric or a hybrid?

Oh deer – do tell!

Actually, the homeowners’ holiday décor gives Santa many options for his sleigh and reindeer – I even saw an airplane. Well, we all need a little more mirth and merriment in our lives, so at what better time than Christmas?

Whatever Santa uses on his long journey tonight, he might want to have a Garmin or Siri handy to get him around the globe in record time, if he won’t be relying on Rudolph’s red nose. Sadly, my long journey can’t even compare to Santa’s, at a mere 735 miles walked to date in 2016.

Safe travels to you and yours and blessings for a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

    Yes Marge …, he is innovative that Jolly Old Elf … when I was online, I hopped on NORAD, and also Google to track Santa Claus. When you clicked on Google, they knew my location and told me that Santa was eight hours from my house and how many gifts he had delivered so far. Hmmm. Bet, even Santa lost track of those stats!
