Chilling on the Mantle with Pokey, Gumby and Jesus
This weekend we'll have to take down all the Christmas stuff. In my role as Santa I managed to secure a totally excellent Gumby and Pokey combo for none other than myself. A stocking stuffer, which is a sort of duty-free zone in the gift department. I grabbed the pair of them in the waning minutes of Christmas Eve shopping at Barnes and Noble, along with a palm reading book and some stubby pens. At any rate, our rubber friends have been hanging out in the creche. All seem pleased. The Magi are curious about Gumby and desire news of his home planet.
