August letter year 2

How are you doing?
Your Watcher Elf here again! This month is so much fun. All of the Holiday Keepers go on vacation and leave ‘End of the Rainbow’ to us Watcher Elves.
We are having our yearly gathering to learn all about the new inventions the North Pole have come up with. Some of the things they bring to show us are great but some of them are total disasters. Last time they brought a pen that was suppose to deliver our reports to Santa Claus without us having to send them by bird messenger. It worked fine except it wrote everything in the Martian language and no one on this planet, including Santa could read them. We sent them to Mars and they said they are working out wonderfully for them.
Another invention that didn’t work very well were glasses that we were supposed to wear to be able to see through the walls of your houses. They worked okay but we kept forgetting we had them on and about two hundred Watcher elves got hurt walking into the walls thinking they weren’t there. My nose got bent to one side when I crashed into the wall of your house, the glasses made me think the wall wasn’t there. At least, until I hit it, Ouch!!
Even if all the inventions aren’t great, the food is! This year my friends Star and Sweeper are in charge of the food. Star said they were making Crispy snow sandwiches, which are one of my favorites! Winter goulash, Holly berry pudding, poinsettia punch, even green treats and pinecone dessert. Cranky, he’s one of the oldest Watcher Elves around. He said he was going to sneak some egg nog in. Elves can’t drink eggnog because it makes us act really silly. About a hundred years ago a different elf brought some egg nog into the inventor’s convention and he was caught by Santa Claus. Santa wasn’t very happy and he wouldn’t let him be a watcher elf anymore. Now that elf is in charge of shoveling reindeer poop! I’m not going to go anywhere near the egg nog if Cranky does bring it. I don’t like shoveling reindeer poop, it stinks!!
Oh, before I forget Sam Eagle asked me to tell you that the trees are still playing their first game. The score is now something like one million to nothing. The trees just won’t quit batting.
Be good, I’ll be watching you! Start thinking about what you want from Santa Claus. Christmas is coming fast. Only about 5 months away!
Your Watcher Elf
