If Santa were Truly Magical he would Assemble and not Just Deliver

I don’t get the whole deal with Santa Claus, do you? I mean the little fat dude and his elves somehow to arrange to deliver all sorts of goods from all sorts of places to kids all over the world in just a matter of hours. He is almost as good as Amazon Prime. My question is why can’t he assemble the stuff he delivers? I mean finish the job. I can tell you with Logan over the years I have spent hours putting together bicycles and action figure sets and scouring the internet looking for tips. Cmon Santa, throw us a bone why don’t you?

I’m using my new sports video camera. it takes stills also. I hadn’t disabled the date function yet.

 

Santa got Logan a new trampoline this year. It is his third. He loves his trampolines and just wears them out. So Santa keeps bringing him new ones. Well Santa just delivered this big ass heavy box ┬áthat has been in our garage for a few days. And that’s the end of his responsibility. It is up to me to get the thing moved out back and assembled.

Sorry about my messy garage. Santa doesn’t clean and organize garages either.

 

Yeah, well I’m an older Dad and we older Dad’s don’t struggle with the box moving it out back. We take the stuff out of the box and move it out back in several trips. That’s not as manly as taking the whole box back but sure is a lot easier.

Nice thing about winter is that grass turns brown and doesn’t grow.

 

So there it is. Now if Santa was magical, couldn’t he just give me a shazzam to make it all pop together?

The camera has a 170 degree view which gives everything a fisheye effect which works for this kind of shot.

 

Hey, I got something better than a shazzam, I got Heather back from a shopping trip with Nana. (In case you are wondering Nana financed the trampoline.) Heather immediately regretted not shopping longer as I recruited her into finishing the task.

So with Heather, you just get right to work. No stopping to take pics or anything like that. She is a mom you know. Mom’s don’t put up with Dad’s foolishness too much. Anyway I used my new SJ4000 camera to video Logan and his friend Q jumping and then I handed the camera to Logan to get a view of what the world looks like while you are jumping on the trampoline. It records in HD mode which for nice pics but it takes forever to load them. Sorry about all the fingers and thumbs. I’m still learning.

So, what do you think? Should Santa assemble as well as deliver?

    You tickled my funny bone with this. I had forgotten the curses from my husband at this time of year when we didn’t have the right battery or the allen key(??) didn’t fit. The joys of having young people around. However, all I can say Allen is, when Logan gets older, his delight will be putting together things he is given. My son is in his mid-fifties and for years nothing pleases him more than putting together model helicopters or planes – he escapes from all things domestic and plays.

    Heavens to Betsy, it’s good to tell I’m old and feeble, I knew your name looked wrong when I wrote it ALAN – I blame the fact it’s 3.30a.m. and I cannot sleep………………………………

      That is quite alright. I have a guy working for me for eight years who still hasn’t spelled my name right. I answer to anything.

    You do know how to make my day!!! Thank you for the giggles and grins that I seriously needed today!! Have a great weekend and a very Happy New Year!!

    Congratulations, another camera…and it’s one that you can mount on a drone and survey the neighborhood if you choose. I think these cameras are really cool, I just can’t think of anything cool to do that needs to be recorded. Enjoy the new toy.

    as a kid we always got things totally in one piece … why not as an adult? seems only fair. ( :
    you have me in giggles. that is too funny!!

    I’m going to have to come back when I have a stronger signal to view your photos and video. A good Dad does what Santa can’t and you certainly qualify.

    Yes, assembly should definitely be included!

    Watching my nephew and his friend jump on that trampoline worries me (mainly because I’m a mom). Shouldn’t there be some type of cage to keep them from jumping over the edge? I don’t want to see any blogs about broken arms or anything.
