Santa Came Twice
I will always remember Christmas 1948 as the year that Santa came twice! My daddy, Ward Navelle, worked a day job in a chair factory. At night, he occasionally helped his friend, Mr. Andy Scoma, with his drug and variety store, stocking shelves and creating displays. A lot of my childhood toys came from Mr. Andy's store, as Daddy often took his pay in goods rather than cash. I'm pretty sure that was where the toy came from that made Santa come to my house again!
