"Dear Santa,

My name is Sharon. I hear you on C.F.R.B. Why don't you write any more Santagrams to us?


I would like a pogo stick or a new pair of skates.

Brucie, my 2 year old cousin would like a toy boar & motor.

I'm sure he would also want a replacement for his teddy bear's nose which he chew into bits.

Sharon"
