"And what to my wondering eyes should appear?"
Not Santa and not reindeer, but a check from Senior Living Magazine of Vancouver, Canada for an article I submitted to them back in July of 2010.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend Oaxaca - A Multitude of Chocolate, my second paid piece of writing, which was published in the December 2010 issue - thus the 'Chris Before Nightmas' reference.
If you should be interested in looking at the piece, click on the title to this blog post or use the addy at the bottom of the post. Scroll down to the appropriate title and enjoy.
You may also be interested in perusing other issues of Senior Living , all of which contain valuable information for those of us over 50.
