Wordful Wednesday - Reindeer and Bikers

Last Sunday my brother (derby coach) and one of the derby girls was late to roller derby practice. One would think it's because they had a major emergency. But noooo! They stopped to get their pic taken with an elf and a real reindeer.

Apparently a local biker gang was in the area and wanted to show the community that not all bikers are bad. A person could get how many pictures they wanted, and for free. My brother talked with the Outlaws and they want to get word out that they're helping our area, not hurting it. Regardless of your stance on bikers, I salute anyone who stands out in single-digit freezing weather for hours to take pictures for free.

It wasn't widely publicized or advertised about where the elf and reindeer were going to be at any given time, so it was hit or miss. The next day my oldest daughter found them on the main street in town and stopped to get her pic taken.

Later that night I heard word the elf and reindeer were located at a Dairy Queen. I grabbed Shelby, threw on my husband's fuzzy pajama pants, put on my winter hat, and bolted out the door. My outfit was thrown together and it was horribly cold, but I can now say I've seen a real live reindeer!
