Mother Christmas took a pedicab ride from the lighting of the National Christmas Tree last night. She was in the pageant on stage. We had a joyous ride from the White House to the parking garage, singing on the way up 15th Street! "Rudolph the Red Nosed Biker..." She handed me a red ball that glowed on my nose, attached over my sweater cap on that cold night. (Well, I was puffing and pedaling my 400 pound pedicab UPHILL on 15th Street, so all I could add were the words, glee! and nose!)
So Merry Christmas and Happy 2011, Mother Christmas!
