|12/22/17 Blitzen dozing|
First, I had to fight my way through swarms of kids to
get to Blitzen and Dasher, the reindeer who visit the store annually.

Then I had to fight my way through swarms of parents to get to Santa, with lots of Santa’s helpers blocking my view. (Even with my limited view of him, Santa remembered me from the time I sketched him a couple of years ago.) At least I didn’t have to fight to get to Pippin, Alex’s new puppy, who stayed relatively still chewing his leash.

|12/22/17 banana tree|
After all that, I had to break for lunch, and then I had
my usual 15 minutes left before the throwdown. In Swansons’ crowded café, I had
a mostly unobstructed view of the enormous banana tree growing by the koi pond.
