Sunday, December 4, 2016:  It snowed while Mark and Paula spent two cozy nights in St. Paul. 
Then it was off to visit Bachman's-Floral Gift & Garden on Lyndale Avenue south in Minneapolis.  They are a go-to place for holiday decorations.
Mark and Paula couldn't resist getting their photo taken.  Mark wore his red Santa-like shirt for the occasion.
Santa's House is conveniently located at Bachman's.  Albert the elf was there to greet kids and ask what they wanted for Christmas.
Then Santa arrived and Albert read letters from kids.  Very interesting!....they have a lot of work to do before Christmas eve.
Then, there he was, Elfis!  Yes, an elf who looks strikingly like Elvis.  Santa was at first mystified.  It took him a while to come to terms with another star on the stage of life. 

Quote of the day:    Bachman's has been around since 1885.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
