Photographed at the Reading Hospital Cancer Unit
Yesterday while over at the Reading Hospital waiting for my Wife to have a Stress Test done on her heart I didn’t have much to do but walk around and see what’s going on. While slowly walking the many areas of the huge Hospital, I happen to hear some Christmas carols being sung by a choir over in the next building. They sounded pretty good, so I thought I’d go over there and see what’s going on.
Found out that the Choir was from one of the High Schools around the area. The Choir was pretty much all young Ladies and 6 or 7 young men. They all looked to be in 8th or 9th Grade. They were singing Deck The Halls, Jingle Bells, Hark The Herold Angels Sing, and White Christmas, plus a few more. They had some good harmony and I enjoyed listening to the music for a while.
In the process of just standing around enjoying the music, I noticed Santa walking around with his bag of goodies. I thought he looked pretty good and was worth an Image being taken of him. When he came close to me, I asked him if he would mind me taking a shot of him. He said No, and stepped over in front of the tree for me. The above is the photo I took of him with my phone camera. I thanked him for his time, and he went along his merry way.
Found out that Santa visit’s the Children’s Area and goes into the Rooms to greet all the sick children who might not be home for Christmas. He gives them all a small gift from Santa himself. This is such a nice gesture for them all. Santa’s reindeer were not there, that I saw.
Happy Holidays to all

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, from Florida!
What a delightful post, Les!! Thank you!!
Your Welcome. Forgot to say that we did have 2 Calico Cats awhile ago. I just love their colors. Sorry to say we had to put both of them to sleep because of kidney problems. Wish I could have another one, but I don’t want to put it down anymore! Their names were Porsha 1 and Porsha 2
SO sorry for your loss, Les!! I know God help me, I know how devastating it is to loose a fur baby. We have some girls right now who were really sick, sick enough for me to call our in-home euthanasia Vet to inform her of what is going on. I’ve discovered a product recently that is miraculously turning them around. Still unsure of how much time we have with these girls and that is why we are making every moment count!!! All three were on IV fluid replacements due to kidney and organ failure and all three today are not requiring the IV fluids. Never before have I seen anything like this. Never. So many of our babies died due to kidney and organ failure and to witness this turnaround is like a said, a miracle.
