Yes. Santa is real. 
So is Mrs. Claus.
The are a lovely couple.
 My hubby and I met them at Staples by the copy machines.
(I guess the elves are busy making toys, no time for paperwork??)
I have been so down lately and quite frankly this chance meeting lifted my spirits.
Evidently, I'm allowed to have my bad days. So I told Santa my wishes for Christmas.
Actually we all chatted for quite a bit. You will not be surprised to find out that
food was part of our conversation.
Santa likes BBQ, Biscuits and Gravy as well as Sweet Tea.
In the blink of an eye, it was time to say goodbye.
I got a hug from both Mr and Mrs. Claus as well as this card:

Only 72 days until Christmas. Are you on the NICE List?

Lifetime’s Upcoming movie: FIVE premieres Monday, October 10th

FIVE is an anthology of five short films exploring the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives directed by Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, Patty Jenkins and Penelope Spheeris.

The all-star ensemble cast includes Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (“Pieces of April”), Rosario Dawson (“Sin City”), Lyndsy Fonseca (“How I Met Your Mother”), Ginnifer Goodwin (“Big Love”), Josh Holloway (“Lost”), Taylor Kinney (“The Vampire Diaries”), Jenifer Lewis (“The Princess and the Frog”), Jennifer Morrison (“House M.D.”), Kathy Najimy (“WALL-E”), Golden Globe Award winner Bob Newhart (“Horrible Bosses”), Annie Potts (“Law & Order: SVU”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Girlfriends”), Emmy and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), and Emmy nominees Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development”) and Jeanne Tripplehorn (“Big Love”)

Through an interconnected story arc that uses humor and drama to focus on the effect breast cancer and its different stages of diagnosis have on relationships and the way women perceive themselves while searching for strength, comfort, medical breakthroughs and, ultimately, a cure. Five highlights the shared experience each short film’s title character – “Charlotte” (Goodwin), “Cheyanne” (Fonseca), “Lili” (Dawson), “Mia” (Clarkson) and “Pearl” (Tripplehorn) – endures from the moment of diagnosis.  Each touching storyline is tied together by chronologically featuring “Pearl,” beginning as a confused child bravely facing the loss of her mother (Goodwin) to breast cancer to her adult life as a mother and oncologist treating other patients (Fonseca, Dawson and Clarkson) before she herself is diagnosed with the same disease that took her mother.

Jennifer Aniston·       Directed by Jennifer Aniston, written by Wendy West and told in a series of humorous and dramatic flashbacks, Mia is a survivor’s tale that highlights all of the highs and lows of Mia’s (Patricia Clarkson) two-year journey from diagnosis with breast cancer.

Alicia Keys·      Lili, directed by Alicia Keys and written by Jill Gordon, follows Lili, a fiercely independent, career-minded woman (Rosario Dawson), who recruits her sister (Tracee Ellis Ross) to help tell their hard-nosed mother (Jenifer Lewis) that she has breast cancer.

Demi Moore·       Directed by Demi Moore and written by Stephen Godchaux, “Five’s” opening film, Charlotte, takes place the night in July 1969 when man first walks on the moon, and when a young Pearl (Ava Acres) is more concerned about why her family is not letting her see her mother, Charlotte (Ginnifer Goodwin), who lies in her bedroom dying from breast cancer.

Patty Jenkins ·      In Pearl, directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Deirdre O’Connor, Pearl (Jeanne Tripplehorn), the successful oncologist we have followed from childhood, suddenly finds herself in the patient’s seat when she is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Penelope Spheeris·      In Cheyanne, directed by Penelope Spheeris and written by Howard Morris, sexy young stripper Cheyanne (Lyndsy Fonseca) and her handsome newlywed husband Tommy (Taylor Kinney) struggle to redefine their passionate relationship, as well as who they are as individuals, when Cheyenne is shocked with a breast cancer diagnosis. Looking at a severe prognosis, Cheyanne’s aggressive treatment ultimately results in the removal of both of her breasts, which have defined her life physically, financially and emotionally.
