Default Re: Well, it's almost that time of the year again.

We had a guy in town that they called "Mister Christmas".. Mervin Whipple
He had a display of lights and animated figures worth over $700,000 that cost him $19,000 a year to run.
People would come in buses, and he'd be out there to shake hands with every one of them. Over 1.5 million people in 35 years.
And he lived out in the sticks too. In a section of town called Ballouville. No joke.
It was really something

Gone But Not Forgotten
