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

He IS cute.
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!
It’s the little things that can make your day. 🙂
So sweet ~ I’ll take 2 … and one of those Mimosa’s for the road ;D
Yes…I was kind of wondering if….maybe, just maybe, there was a Mimosa in the coffee cup of Super Hero Reindeer Man’s friend. He was laughing and having such a great time, just standing in the morning winter sun. 😉
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! 🙂
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.
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.
What a fun moment to capture Mary! Loved it as always. Merry Christmas to you and Tom!
Your way with words is amazing!
Thank you….and Merry Christmas to you also.
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.
It is great fun to be around or to meet adults who still know how to enjoy life and play.
Rock on Reindeer Man. I sense a comic strip in the works.
Maybe…but…probably not. 🙂
Aw Man…that picture is priceless!!!!

SOMETHING YOU WON’T FORGET—IT’S PRICELESS!!!!!!
Look, up in the sky, it’s…………oh Reindeer man!
He looked so funny!
his charm sure is irresistible.
Yes! Like a big teddy bear…..making everyone smile!
I love this. I love the grin on his face. 🙂
Yes. Such a wonderful grin!
Celebrating the child within…
Also showing a natural Christmas Spirit. 🙂
(Sorry for replying so late to your comments on my blog – my notifier did not show them up, so I shall pay closer attention now.)
Oh, not to worry.
Sometimes I suddenly notice comments that were written weeks earlier…and I wonder how I didn’t see them before!
Thank you! 😀
🙂 Happy New Year Mary!
Wishing you blessings in the New Year too!
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! 😉
