There, before the eyes of everyone, I caught the likeness of Santa Claus dancing with Scrooge! So, this must have been after the visit of the Ghost of Christmas Future! Many of the Colt 45's appeared in proper Victorian costumes. However, I don't know if cowboy boots made a fashion statement in 19th century England. Birthday celebrations were also a part of the evening. Alan Pierce, disguised as Scrooge, and Tom of The Back Pocket both added one more notch. The music, provided by the Montrose Symphonic and Brazos River bands, was festive. Even David Royal- The Little Drummer B<>\ front of Tila s ty's mother got into the act, and should have won a costume award for her get up. Crowds came and built up the attendance to full capacity. a TLC Party It was a gathering of the mystic and magical people from The Texas Renaissance Festival at TLC, the Annex, Saturday night. An after-the-holidays get together was planned. The little shop flowed with good wishes, fine thoughts and beautiful ideas. This gathering was a special Christmas present from Bill and Gary, shop owners, for all their friends and especially for the people they worked with at the Renaissance Festival. The excitement affected Buster andBitte who rushed to nearby kennels to invite their nearest and dearest to come join the festivities. Also on Saturday, Ron Sioux was stealing the show at the Lazy J with his usual great performance. Roxanne, who lives at A Place in the Sun. viewed every performance of the Living Nativity Scene with wonder a Christmas Plans You do not have to be lonely this Christmas unless your designs are for that experience. Many places are having Christmas diners and even overnight lodging for the folks without families. I suggest you try and take the Christmas spirit from strangers who wish you well or from v<>ur own planning. Call the Switchboard at 529-3211 for help. Here is a list I have compiled: K.J.s Christmas buffet starts at 7:00 p.m.; Cousins Scrooge and Santa at Dickens on the Brazos Christmas buffet and Happy Hour prices; Charlies Coffee Chop will be open Christmas Day; The Barn; House of Pies will be open; BRB; Rock 'n' Horse. You just might check your favorite spot for their activities. Best wishes to you for a very Merry Christmas. Who knows, we may just meet in this last minute shopping spree, all around town! I would also like to suggest that you tour the Montrose to explore the wonderful lights that are on display this year. One estimate is that we have five times the lights as in last year. Don't forget to view Post Oak and Galleria area as well as downtown. Merry, Merry Christmas to all. Wed: Strip Contest with M.C. Maude, 10pm Fri: Montrose Men 10 & 12pm, M.C.
