A Very Wranger Christmas

December 23, 2011

It was two weeks before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except for Wranger the dog. He was crouched under the Christmas tree sniffing at all the packages that were already under the tree. He knew that one or more of them would be for him. He just couldn’t tell which presents were his.
Wranger knew he was mostly good this year and especially during this holiday season. His “mother” had to scold him only once so far because he had gotten a candy cane stuck in his white Shi-Tzu fur. She just had to snip a little of the fur to get the sticky bits out.

Being Santa

December 23, 2011

Sitting in the midst of the crowd during the Sweetwater Healthcare Center Christmas party on Wednesday afternoon, December 21, is a man donning yellow sunglasses and a Santa hat.
But the hat is only a glimpse into the persona that the man, Herman Winslett, portrayed for the past 35 years.
Mr. Winslett is taking a break from being Santa Claus--the suit doesn't quite fit as well as it once did. Right next to his side is his bride of 41 years, Wynelle, who also took on the role of Mrs. Claus.
