NC THE PALM BEACH POST SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1997 11D rALT.i ciacii ccuriTY uvi?:a 1998 City Calendar ... 9 Year after year, Santa never lets me down Spring 98 Bleyle TRUNK SHOW Palm Beach Monday December 8 U ; i N V 1 V When I was about 8, my younger brother started to tell me he didn't believe in Santa Claus anymore. I covered my ears and ran from the room, screaming. Yet he had planted the seeds of doubt. By age 10, I suspected that (even with the aid of magic dust) going up and down every chimney i the free world must take a great deal of time. Figuring five minutes per chimney at the very least, I Mf orked out a simple multiplication problem based on the estimated number of chimneys in Milwaukee alone. Things did not look good. J "But Dad couldn't possibly have enough money to buy toys for all four of us kids," I thought He's always saying he's broke." i So my faith in Dad never having enough money to buy things f(ir his children kept my hope alive fpr years. Then I got married. ! "Uh-oh," I thought "If Dad has been playing Santa, this is gbing to be a rotten Christmas for gifts. Dad's in Wisconsin and I'm here in Florida and even if Dad can afford presents, he certainly can't afford presents and plane fare." I But on Christmas morning, there were plenty of presents from Santa under the tree. Now I'm 46. "That's pretty old," I tell myself. "Even if there is a Santa, he can't go around bringing presents to people this old. Even Santa has to draw the line STEUBEN Timeless-Elegant-American A tour of West Rtlrn Becck .trvUcapn anJ their botanical references. City of West Rim 'si t 'Ha--' i $f Mi in '4,1. A -:'-. mi .

I recently visited her with my husband and found the facility adequately clean and running efficiently despite the grumbling from my mother-in-law that they don't feed her and bathe her. I realize that this could be her perception of things; however, it did get me to thinking about what I would do if I found the inadequacies to be true. Can you offer some information about where I would go should I need to lodge a complaint against a nursing home? Answer: The Long Term Care Ombudsman Council investigates and resolves complaints made by and on behalf of residents in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult family care homes.

' Deb Welky Out of My Head somewhere." I started to worry that 45 was the cut-off. Then, last weekend, Christmas came early. Mark took me to Georgia to see the great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens re-create ghostly scenes from A Christmas Carol. Dickens arrived in a horse-drawn carriage to the sound of bugles. He was wearing a top hat and tails. He cavorted around the dining room first as Scrooge, then as Marley, then as Fezziwig, then as The Ghost of Things to Come. A dinner was served featuring the traditional Dickens family recipes . . . right down to the plum pudding. After the show, Gerald Charles Dickens sat at a writing desk in the next room and chatted with me as he autographed the books I'd brought from home. I was so excited I could barely stand up. "Mark," I asked later. "How did you manage all this?" "Me?" he asked. "Oh, no. This was a gift from Santa."
