SANTA MONICA CLAUS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
Eyes were popping yesterday at 7th and Montana as a man bearing a striking resemblance to Santa Claus made the scene. He walked through the door carrying a large sack over one shoulder, plunked himself down at a table by the window and ordered an Egg Nog Latte. "Sheesh," I said, "They start pushing Christmas earlier and earlier every year. Can't we at least get through Thanksgiving first?" "I hope he didn't park his sleigh outside," said Bob. I waited for Kringle to regale us with a few 'Ho Ho Hos," but no such luck. Maybe he heard that Ho Ho's -- like Twinkies -- are an endangered species. Instead, he pulled a Net Book out of his sack and began typing up a storm. I guess he was making his list and checking it twice ...!
