I asked for, and got, my Christmas wish….

A shiny new 12 gauge shotgun…

I was admiring my new present when I heard such a clatter….

The noise was louder than most and I was concerned about a burglar….

But I was ready…

I saw a flash in the fireplace….

BANG..

Oooops….hey, kiddies, there is no Santa…..anymore.
