from Santa's genealogy elves

I have it on good authority that the following are the "elves" in question, I cannot say "little" elves as they physically do not match this description because their are so big to accomplish this!:

Bill W. for the copies

Lee: Dakota County

T & C: (alias Pushy & Prody) Chase and Thurston

Kaylynn: Boone & Managing to snooker Pam.....

Jeanne: Helping organize and getting Boone on line

     Editorial: You know there are friends and then there are FRIENDS, those who will come to your aid, no matter what the circumstances, no matter when or where, even during the busiest time of the year. That is the kind of friends that the Lord has blessed me with. When I first looked at this surprise while I was healing from surgery related to a car wreck several years ago, I saw one page, and when I was more awake I came back and explored the page after page of tireless data entry that these "Santa's Genealogy Elves" put in for me, over 25 pages of data...and believe you me, they are all wearing at least bifocals because I saw was the original data came from, YIKES!!! tiny!!! There is no way that I can ever repay them except by continuing to be the kind of friend they think me to be. And to think they had me totally buffaloed...I even replied when they were looking for volunteers and whatever they told me, I was suckered right in that they had enough people....sheesh...<grin>
