Last year my Son waited till 2 days before Christmas to inform us that he sure hoped Santa would get his Letter that he had sent on his own. Informing Santa that he wanted one of those Lionell Train Alarm Clocks. My Wife was in panic mode.
Well ole Santa left him a Large Card and a Rain Check Certificate. Informing my Boy that he had recieved the Letter but was temporairily out of the Clocks but that UPS would deliver him one in the next few days.
My Boy took that Certificate to School and showed all the Kids, they all thought it was Cool. Even had a few Parents call stating that they loved the idea!
Nevermind the Dog it's the Owner who's Dangerous!
