My Grandpa is a legend
He is ancient and tiny and a hero to my kids
Since I was their age he has been telling the same story
It goes something like...
'I am a retired elf, I still help Santa with the packing each year' I also have to trim Santa's Beard and give the Reindeer a haircut before the big day He was a barber for 40 years!
The children love it, I did too
Sadly his dementia is getting worse
He goes walkabout
This year the police brought him back after 2 days
Luckily the weather has been very mild for December so he wasn't in too bad a state
He told them he had been to Lapland to do his last stint of wrapping.
They all smiled and said 'yes of course' and then they increased his security at the home
But we never could explain the fresh snow on his boots!
