2020 – Dear Santa…………

(ignore April 30, 2017 publish date – this was published on December 17, 2020)


Actually, this is from a little earlier than 2020:



I wonder why my mother had to write the year on the second page. I think I did a fairly good semi-legible version on Page 1.

#2 – Not sure about this one. I must have wanted that for my mother…………uh, yeah – that’s it.

#6 – How did I know?

#15 – I had to Google this one to find out what it was.

#16 – What?

I’m sure a shrink would have a field day with the variety of my wants, but I’m also sure that every other kid did the same thing at that age.

And yes – I’m aware of the odd accentuation in part of my address at age 6, but remember: I was a “good boy” (and maybe kinda sorta still am).


Merry Christmas. I hope you all get everything on YOUR lists.

    Those are some pretty interesting gifts you’re asking for! A razor toy, cake mixes and a police uniform! You had a large array of interests growing up.
    No wonder you are who you are. Have a great Christmas and a Healthy Happy New Year ! Thanks for keeping in touch, your conversations are also always very interesting.
