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?
