Super Hero Reindeer Man

To my great surprise,
he suddenly appeared
right before my eyes—
Super Hero Reindeer Man
with his Santa smile.
What was I supposed to do?
Wearing deer antlers
and a star upon his head,
his mischievous eyes
twinkled through his goggles
and made me smile too!     ~ms

You can find me any time wandering around in my own mind gathering thoughts.

    • The child within shining through…..I love it.
      We were stuck in traffic, trying to get to the parking area so we could see the Christmas parade in Middleburg, VA.
      I was sitting in the passenger side with my camera in hand, when suddenly I heard a voice, “Hey..Take his picture! Take his picture!”
      When I looked towards the sound of the voice, I saw him–a super hero reindeer man (or something of that sort), with the cutest smile on his face. What a delightful surprise!

    That IS funny! Merry Christmas, Mary!

    • And a very Merry Christmas to you too, Linda!
      Wishing you a peaceful holiday–with enough time to relax and wrap yourself up in one of your beautiful handmade quilts. It’s an interesting time of year. My birthday is only a few days away from Christmas, as is my wedding anniversary. I know my husband thinks it’s great. All he has to do is remember Christmas, and he’s basically got it all covered. Merry Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary…..Ho, Ho, Ho! 🙂

  3. He looks like fun – and you can’t fail to smile!!! 😀 I saw a checkout assistant in a supermarket wearing something similar a few days ago – at least it lightens the stress of the season!

    • Yes, it was definitely heart warming.
      He was not rushing around trying to sell or buy some “thing”….he was just standing there with a big smile to share. Absolutely wonderful. And the friend of Super Hero Reindeer Man was having a great time watching the reactions of different people passing by. So much fun.

  4. Happy Holidays to you too!!

    • Oh I am smiling today, for sure.
      It’s almost 70 degrees outside.
      And tomorrow, I hear it might go up to 75 degrees.
      This makes me happy. I love the warm!
      It might even thunderstorm tonight?
      Even though I think this weather is great, it is rather odd for Virginia winter weather.
      Next week, it is supposed to go back down into the 30s. Sigh.

    Those are the people who truly add cheer wherever they go. I just lost a friend like that to cancer but the memories of his wacky antics live on.

  7. Rock on Reindeer Man. I sense a comic strip in the works.

  8. Aw Man…that picture is priceless!!!!

  13. 🙂 Happy New Year Mary!

  14. Had a good chuckle on this one! Great way to begin a morning!

    • Super Hero Reindeer Man and his friend were having a good laugh that morning too. In the photo, they are standing next to a sign that said $5 Mimosas from 9 a.m. Made me wonder if it was actually coffee in that coffee cup in his hand…OR…some early morning Christmas cheer! 😉
