Is it just me or is Christmas a little less bright this year? I’m seeing fewer lights and fewer signs of the season. The economy isn’t helping either!
That’s why I was exceptionally happy to run into Ed today. Ed’s from North Haven and I found him at Costume Bazaar on State Street. It’s where I buy my makeup.
No jokes please. I wear it. I don’t enjoy it.
Anyway, I walked into the store and right ahead of me is Ed with his full white beard holding a Santa suit. He was returning it on this mild winter’s day. Could anyone look more the part? If there’s any disappointment it’s that Ed isn’t using the suit any more (and that he doesn’t own his own)!
I asked if it would be OK to snap a shot. The result is below.
Thanks Ed for a little smile in a season of frowns and doubt.
