Twas The Night Before Christmas in Texas

Santa
'Twas the night before Christmas, in Texas, you know. Way out in the prairie, without any snow. Asleep in their cabin, were Buddy and Sue. A dreamin' of Christmas, like me and you. Not stockings, but boots, at the foot of their bed, For this was Texas, what more need be said, When all of a sudden, from out of the still night, There came such a ruckus, it game me a fright. And I saw 'cross the prairie, like a shot from a gun, A loaded up buckboard, come on at a run, The driver was "Geein" and "Hawin", with a will, The horses (not reindeer) he drove with such skill. "Come on there Buck, Poncho & Prince, to the right, There'll be plenty of travelin' for you all tonight." The driver in Levi's and a shirt that was red, Had a ten-gallon Stetson on top of his head.
Santa 3 As he stepped from the buckboard, he was really a sight, With his beard and moustache, so curly and white. As he burst in the cabin, the children awoke, And were so astonished, that neither one spoke. And he filled up their boots with such presents galore, That neither could think of a single thing more. When Buddy recovered the use of his jaw, He asked in a whisper, "Are you really Santa Claus?" "Am I the real Santa? Well, what do you think?" And he smiled as he gave a mysterious wink. The he leaped in his buckboard, and called back in his drawl, "To all the children in Texas, Merry Christmas, You all!"

Love the poem and the photos. And the best part? I'm in Ft. Worth before the snow started and I'll be listening from my bed for the thundering hooves of Santa's team 'cause tonight I'm one of the "children in Texas".

Here's wishin' the best Christmas ever to all the inhabitants of the Crazy M and great buckin' in the New Year!
