As an Ausie I really love this pic. This pretty much represents my childhood. Did you ever sing 6 White Boomers at Christmas?

Oh gosh, this would have to be one of my favourite artworks, which really only a fellow Aussie would understand ~ so I'm glad you like it and yes know/sang 6 White Boomers Roo Ride

Beautiful image! (You gotta feel kinda bad for the guy, though, he works so hard and makes next to nothing in wages, eh???) ;-) :heart:
Wonderful animated version as well!!

Thanks so much ... does he really not make any wages? Mrs. Claus employment

You know what, he's got those mall and department store visits, plus a few parades and he's definitely got a few sponsors, but does that cover all those toy supplies, let alone the heating costs for the workshop in the most inhospitable place on earth?!?!?!? :giggle: Happy holidays, sweets!!!
