Just got a call from Rudolph The Red Nosed Mrs. Claus Mrs. Santa Claus Rudolph The Red Just called and put Santa on that cell phone thingymagiggy. Santa said the winds of good time are with them and they're making supercalafragilisticexpealadocious time...there about to plop on...oops I mean land on a roof top in Hanoi, the capital of Viet Nam.

Santa always takes a little extra time at this stop to do the "SC call home" - when he hits Hanoi, like ET did in that cute little lost alien movie we all loved. Santa almost missed 1/2 of his Christmas deliveries one time in the 60's when some crazy people were shooting off weird fire works that scared the beegeebers out of his reindeer. As the beegeebers began to plop, plop the fire words went fizz, fizz. When Santa was about to land his sleigh on top the rikity old Hanoi Hilton he realized it was filled with Americans and thought he had read his map wrong as was back in the US. The Americans started cheering and waving a patchwork US flag with a side note attached to it that said "Santa We're Only Here For A Little While and We'll Know We'll Be Free Again Soon Cause We Believe" - Santa landed and there was a whole hollarballooo from some skinny guys that called themselves VN soldiers who kept debating if they should take Santa and Reideer captive. Now Santa can be a real schrewdy when he has to be. So he he metamorphed himself to look like a VN soldier dressin in santa gear - sack n all, he flipped em a few pineapple shaped fireworks with auto delay timers set. Santa then covered his ears, ran like the dickens, jumped quickly back in his sleigh still 1/2 filled with goodies and toys yet to be delivered and shouted "Hoi Hoi Hoi Chung Mung Giang Sinh" and commanded Rudolf The Red To Take off like a bat out of h*ll...which Rudolf The Red did immediately. The BOOOOOMMMMM of the fireworks got lots of cheers for the fellows in the Hanoi Hilton and scared the plop, plop, fizz, fizz right out of Rudolf The Red and his seligh team once again.

So you see Santa may shake a bit in his boots an the reindeer plop n fizz when they're about to land in Hanoi which is caused by the memory of that 60's delivery, but he always runs to the first phone boot and calls home to say he's 1/2 here and 1/2 there and he'll be home for dinner when he gets there...
