Mr. Sawyer was wearing a Santa hat when I went out Monday. Oh my way back, I stopped to give him a tin of cookies and to thank him for his Christmas displays over the years and for always waving when folks pass by.
I asked about the black plastic on the main display (some of you had wondered if it concealed a Nativity) and I think he said it was to make the things in front show up better.
Then I asked if I could take his picture and he kindly posed for me.
He said that he hitches the little trailer with the display to the riding mower (above) and pulls it around. I really wanted to see that but hadn't the chutzpah to ask. But how lovely -- a home-grown mini parade.
May your Christmas and Holidays be as real and from the heart as Mr. Sawyer's!
