Don't know how to post the actual card ,but here is the text from a xmas card my wife created several years ago. (a classic ??)
Model T'S save Christmas.
Santa Claus was frantic. The reindeer were on strike. It was Christmas Eve and snowing, & nothing's going right!
He sent the elves for Rudolph, to plead his case once more,
for Christmas day was coming to the world from shore to shore.
Rudolph came to Santa,
& listened to his plea. "Do it for the children, they need presents under their trees."
Rudolph answered Santa, as he shook his head with might,their hooves were down, they would not go, tonight there'd be no flight!
Santa really worried,about what he should do,Christmas eve was here & he had no reindeer crew!
Mr's Claus came in the room, knowing she could help,"your answer lies dear Santa, in your list upon the shelf".
He went through scores of people, no one seemed just right,he felt so doggone helpless, this could take all night.
When suddenly he happened upon a group of names,Santa knew without a doubt,he was right back in the game.
They had some strange requests he thought, for Warfords,Stipes & Ruckstells,but knowing he could count on them,he called them on the double.
As Santa finished dressing,he heard the elves big cheer,8 Model T's were lined up,just like his old reindeer!
They tied the reins between them,and hooked onto his sleigh. As they worked they chanted." Model T'S will save the day".
Santa climbed into his sleigh,with a twinkle in his eye. Most people do not realize,that Model T'S can fly!
The Huckster and the Speedster were leaders of the pack,followed by the Centerdoor,and of course,a hack.
The Tudor and the Fordor,Runabout,and Coupe completed Santa's lineup. What a special group!
All present's were delivered.The children squealed with glee,and that's just how it happened,Christmas saved by Model T'S.
We wish you a Merry Christmas,and Happy New Year too,from Ron & Sharon, part of Santa's,Christmas crew.
Ron - That is absolutely great!
We're having our Model T Club Christmas [party today and I think I'll read it.
Obviously, your Wife is really talented. Does she write for other things also?
Ron, Never had the poem and the Fords got out of order. That was a big reindeer strike that year.
HA! Good one, Ron! Your wife has real talent. Thanks for posting!
Merry Christmas, everyone. Here's to a better year in 2013.
Really great Ron. I like it. Shows a lot of talent.
Fast ride in the Vette Mike, you back already...? Grin.
hahaha It's hell getting old...he just THINKS he went on a ride.
ho ho ho!
Actually I was going to bed instead. I only said I was going for a ride in the Vette to have an excuse to get away from this darn computer. Besides the fresh snow outside isn't good for me or the Vette. Thanks though Steve for pointing you finger and catching me in a lie. Thanks a bunch. haha. And Danial I may be old but ah, um, oh crap I forgot what I was going to say. Did I tell you how much fun I had a couple minutes ago driving my Vette?
Hey, I remember the ass-end of my Vette leading the way a time or two on wet pavement, I can't imagine what would happen on snow and ice...
LMAO....... Mike. Too funny! Sorry I put you in the spot light, maybe tomorrow with snow chains.....?
You remind me of the winter in the late 60's when my buddy and I decided to go skiing at Mt Cranmore in North Conway NH.
The only vehicle we had running at that time was a 1966 427 425 HP vette with Minilite Mags and wide tires.
But that didn't stop us until we got a few inches of new snow.
You can imagine how hard it was to go up a gradual incline - not to mention a slight hill.
Its always fun to transport Santa. This years Model T Ford Club of Victoria'a Christamas party. Great poem Ron. Thanks for sharing. Might have to borrow it for next years club newsletter.
