Old chestnuts are the best?

DSCF9212 Once upon a time, in the old days, many children went to  their dad’s Works Annual Christmas Party and might see a juggler or puppet show. The show, the party and a tangerine to go home with was often the highlight of the year for children in the late 50s and early 6os. If it was one of our shows Frosty would certainly be part of it!  Jamie (middle grandson) and I reconstructed this number last summer.
