Santa vs The Kansas Troublemakers: The Final Chapter

On the last full day of the Kansas Troublemakers retreat, Santa decided that he only had a little time left to pull out all the stops. First, he snuck into the un-official massage room and tried to pass himself off as the massage therapist! He was caught on camera in the nick of time, much to the intended victim's relief. The photo he took of her jumping off the table in shock, trailing her spa blanket behind her as she ran screaming from the room, was later found in the attic. Santa's not above blackmail, apparently.Later, he joined us in the Gathering Room where he made friends with Kathi's Sock Monkey. They were inseparable for the rest of the evening, and played practical jokes with some fruit. Fortunately, there are no photos of the bananas and lemons they were playing with.After a few bourbon slushes, Santa once again began his schmoozing with all the retreaters, making wild promises of fabulously-filled Christmas stockings in a few months.He convinced one retreater into accompanying him up to the attic, where he had a special surprise for her!
True to form, he had too much to drink, and was quite partial to this wine, which reminded him of a special friend in Ohio.
After that bottle, he finished off 3 more and (thankfully) stumbled upstairs. Literally.Leaving his empties out for the cleaning crew, he dragged himself into his attic and retired for the duration. We haven't seen him since, but can still hear the rafters rattling with his roof-raising snoring.
The rest of his exploits will have to remain a mystery, as

He did seem to enjoy creating a ruckus with the Kansas Troublemakers, and I bet he'll be back next year!

Wow! Santa really pulled some fast ones on us that last day! I just hope Diane can keep him in confined quarters until the next time the KC Troublemakers get together!

ROFLMBO! Wish I could have been there to video Santa's attempted trists. Just think of the presents you could get with the threats to show the video to Mrs. Clause
