Harley Santa and his Reindeer Men

On a recent trip to Silver City, New Mexico, I met a variety of unusual people that were very photo friendly. My favorites were a group of bikers, hanging out at the Buffalo Bar, adjacent next to the coffee house where I sat gulping coffee trying to get warm. The first guy I noticed came walking in with a bright green elf ear hat. He and I made eye contact, he got his own hot joe and was gone. Then, for the next several minutes, I watched a leather and antler fashion show stride in and out until finally…the  big man entered with a box. The entire group got all happy and then started attacking the box. Out came the most beautiful velvet Santa suit, hat, hair and beard. I looked around to see if any children were lurking in confusion, saw none and approached the merry scene. I showed my gear, gave my best crooked smile and was met with a nod and smile. I watched 2 guys dress the big guy, while asking H-type questions the whole time. Turned out the big guy had a grand daughter and an entire elementary school waiting for Harley Santa and his reindeer Men. Once properly attired, they proceeded outside where a Police escort, sat waiting.

He sprang to his Harley, to his team gave a whistle,

And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard from his speakers, ‘ere he drove out of sight,

the tune “Jumpin Jack Flash blaring into the night!”

  1. Can I cyber slap you!@? “Trying to get warm”. It’s a toasty 23f right now and I have an icicle on the end of my nose because my hubby keeps the house at 65f.

  2. What great pictures! That looks like so much fun to be part of.
