My Blog Has Moved

Well folks, I've finally done it. I've switched to WordPress and my blog is now on my own domain. So say good-bye to Blogger and good-bye to the bling. But don't be sad. Life is full of change. Change is a good thing. It keeps us on our toes. It challanges us and makes us stronger. And as your next President... oops, I got a little speechy there, didn't I?

Anyway, check me out at:

I'll look for you there.

Santa's Little Helper


I'm laying in bed last night when I hear the "ding" sound my phone makes when it receives a text message. Even though it's in the living room on the charger, I hear it. So I get up and trudge to my phone. The text message is from my friend, Linda, and this is the picture that was in it.

Her son Zachary had strolled into her bedroom after work last night all dolled up as a Christmas elf. After laughing hysterically, she grabbed her phone, snapped a picture, and, of course, immediately sent it to me. Zach works at Graziano's, a local bar and restaurant that has been around forever. It seems that a few days ago he was talking to the owner's wife who was preparing for some event with Santa at the restaurant. She was going to play Mrs. Claus and had just gotten her costume. Zach jokingly said that she should have said something because he wanted to be an elf. Lo and behold he came into work last night and there was an elf costume for him. So folks, be careful what you say or you may end up wearing an elf costume while serving pasta in a restaurant. Don't you just love the two tone tights?

Laura said...

Zachary the elf makes for some serious eye candy!

Preston said...

Keeper of the Skies Wife - Yes, I think its hilarious too. Zach's a good guy though.

Makingmoney - Yes, I think Zach learned that lesson the hard way.

Laura - Yes, Zach is a very handsome fellow. I think he sort of looks like George Michael in this picture (from his early days). I've known him since he was in his teens and he is one of my closest friend's son so I try to avoid thinking of him as "eye candy." LOL

Preston said...

Cammie - I have not read the Twilight series but you are not the first one to tell me that I should. I'll have to check it out.

It's Daddies. Plural. - Yea, it cracks me up too. It's even funnier if you knew him.

I think I had tights like those in the 80's. But I wore them to my corporate job. Scary!

Preston said...

Rachael - I think you have to go to the Italian Restaurant he works at to see this elf in action. :)

Mongoliangirl - You had two tone tights in the 80's? Wow! Any pics?

Noah's Mommy said...

that is so funny...I wonder if he knows that he is posted on the internet for millions of bloggers to see....I love his facial expression....Like..it is I ...super elf...

Preston said...

Noah's Mommy - Oh, Linda called him as soon as she saw it on my blog. And that is such a perfect description of his expression. LOL

Dave said...

Except for the hat, that totally reminds me of the elf costumes Santa's helpers wore in the mall in "A Christmas Story"!

heathersister said...

Look at that smile, he is lovin' that costume!

Preston said...

Dave - You are so right. And yea, that hat is definitely unique.

Heathersister - He sure is. It's a great holiday picture!

heathersister said...

I say Christmas Card pictue!

WheresMyAngels said...

Oh I wanna wear some elf shoes, they look so comfy!

Should I make a wish?

Preston said...

Heathersister - I told Linda about the Christmas Card idea and she laughed. I don't think Zach planned on getting such publicity.

Wheresmyangels - Make a wish girl cause I see no elf shoes in that pic. LOL
