A lot of smiling faces as this marked the end of this year's Santa float run! Just going the last count up at the Reindeer Inn,
Doesn't our Float look good! Great job everyone! Looking forward to next year.
Just one more night to go!
Meanwhile here is Santa and 3 of his elves street collecting on Saturday outside the Rodney.
Looks like Santa's beard has been sprayed on with shaving foam, while Keith seems to have just climbed off a reindeer! Tony's reactolite glasses think the sun is shining when it clearly isn't! While our very own "Ride the clutch" Bob (ask Iris) is just pleased to no longer be standing on the old market square on his own like Billy no mates!
First night out on the float and we all got completely soaked (by the rain that is!). We still managed to improve on the previous year's take for the same route; people must have felt sorry for us! At the end of the route we did however receive some great hospitality from our friends in Rolleston, who let us dry out in their kitchen while we warmed our insides with mulled wine, whiskey, brandy, sausage rolls and mince pies.
Fozzie looks like he's lost some weight! Must be all that walking. While Grahame is recovering by seeing how many mince pies he can down in one go!
A little more imbibing was done while we counted up at the Reindeer afterwards. Although I understand the notes had to be dried out by Barry before banking them the next day.
Looks like Roger's falling asleeep counting the pennies!
Question: Who am I?
Answer: The name badge is a clue!
Question: What am I doing wearing a sash?
Answer: It's a beauty pageant and you've just come last!
...actually it's a Mr Universe competition!
Marion thought he scrubbed up well in the suit - shame it's only on loan from Moss Bros.
