Weekend treats

Rankin/Bass' The Stingiest Man in town

I added a nice addition to the Rankin/Bass archives/museum (Thanks to my pal Mike O'Reilley), that will come in handy for a few future museum/appearance events!  I may even do one as early as January 12, 2019! #thestingiestmanintown #nbc #alcoa #paulcokerjr #rankinbass #promoposter

S.D. is still out there delivering packages for us!  We had many last minute orders and several on Christmas day, all of which I packed and mailed and Larry Picked up.   I had to split some orders too and get most of the orders to customers for Christmas, with other books to follow soon! #themakingofsantaclausiscomintotownandthedaydreamer #books #sdklueger #fredastaire #holidayseason #gladtidings #seasonsgreetings #rankinbass #whatareyoudoingnewyearseve?
