Granddaughter Wants WHAT?

Another Furry Friend - or Another Furry Beast?

by Eugene Elf

   - Published: November 26, 2012


[Granddaughter Wants WHAT?]
Elfin Relatives to See Santa
There have been many unusual things that have happened at the North Pole over the years. Elves have gone on strike, reindeer have forgotten how to fly, Santa has even been launched into orbit. But the woman who stood at the North Pole, glaring down at Santa, may have been the strangest yet.

Up close, she wasn't as large as a Yeti--not quite, anyway. But she was certainly larger than you would think the Granddaughter of an elf would be. And her enormous silver fur coat, gray hair, and pale, pale skin did make her look very similar to an Abominable Snowman. And the look on her face, while not quite abominable, was entirely unpleasant.

As was the way she spoke to Santa. "My name is Dolores Flemspackle, and this is my son, Phil."

It would be wrong to say that Phil Flemspackle appeared magically beside his mother. He most likely had been standing there all along. However, she was so imposing, that he was almost invisible until you looked right at him.

"Um, hi," said Phil Flemspackle, smiling shyly.

"Welcome to you both," said Santa. "Welcome to The North Pole! We're so very happy to have the Granddaughter of Ha'penny Elf among us."

"Hay Penny Who?" said Dolores Flemspackle.

"Granpda Hap," explained her son Phil. "Remember? I told you--he was an Elf."

"Yes, indeed, and a marvelous Elf at that!" said Santa. "We haven't heard from him for many years. How is he doing?"

"Don't know, don't care," said Dolores. "He hasn't been around since I was a little girl. Now, let's get down to business."

"Business?" asked Santa. "What kind of business do you mean?"

Dolores Flemspackle smiled. At least, the corners of her mouth went up. She opened her purse, and took out her checkbook. "We would like to buy something from you."

Santa smiled. It was a wonderful smile, a smile full of love--love, even, for someone like Dolores Flemspackle. "Ho, ho ho! We don't sell things here at The North Pole! We give things away! For free! With love! Just tell us what you want!"

Dolores Flemspackle's smile widened still. She put her checkbook back in her purse. "That's wonderful!" she said. "Because what I want is your toymaking machine--the Apendapulator!"

What will happen next? Will Santa give this woman his toymaking machine? How will they make the Christmas toys without it? Keep reading The North Pole Times to find out!

Super Secret Sunday Final

Now the conclusion of the CASE OF THE MISSING CHRISTMAS WISH LIST.


School of Wonders Elves Graduate

Graduation is an elf’s favorite day at school. After all, it is the day we are rewarded for all of our hard schoolwork.



-
Shortly after you go to bed tonight, Santa will leave for his trip around the world! He’ll land on rooftops, pulled by his magical team of reindeer, in every city, every town and every country across the globe to deliver wonderful gifts to wonderful boys and girls.

-
After nearly a month away from the North Pole, Santa Claus had returned at last. But before he got ready for Christmas Eve, he needed to ask Gizmo Elf something:

-
Sparks flew! Gears ground! Widgets fidgeted! Steam billowed up and around Waldo and the Appendapulator! There was a sound like a giant balloon popping, and then all was silent.

-
Waldo Elf was laughing. You fellas sure do know how to tickle my funnybone! he said.

-
Gimo Elf looked up from his work on the Appendapulator to find a group of elves looking at him. This was nothing new to Gizmo recently. Ever since he had accidentally popped Santa away from the North Pole, elves were stopping by, checking on his progress, seeing if he needed anything, encouraging him any way they could to help him bring Santa back.

-
All the elves were working very hard at the North Pole, getting ready for Christmas. But none were working harder than Gizmo. Unfortunately, he seemed to be making no progress in getting Santa back to the North Pole.

-
Santa's still getting popped around by the Appendapulator. Now he's in England!

-
Who would drive the sleigh if Santa is away?

-
What if Santa doesn't make it back to the North Pole in time for Christmas?

-
On one end of the Appendapulator, everything was 'business as usual;' brightly wrapped presents were popping out ot the machine as fast as the elves could carry them away. At the other end, though, things were a little different.

-
Mrs. Claus appeared at the doorway of the workshop. "Santa sent us another email!" she called.

-
Moving a machine like the Appendapulator from one place to another is not an easy job. It's especially difficult when all the reindeer are busy competing at the Reindeer Games.

-
What's normally good news this time of year brings trouble to the North Pole.

-
One second Santa's in California, the next he's in New York!

-
Sometimes things just go from bad to worse. And sometimes they go from worse to downright terrible.

-
S. Alfred Pickles looked around the workshop. His beady eyes gazed longingly at the Appendapulator, the great toymaking machine of the North Pole.

-
Inside the cloud of steam, a shape loomed. It was large. It was round-bellied. It wasn't Santa!

-
The Appendapulator whirred and bonked, clanked and clonked, and then was still. "I just don't understand it, Waldo," said Gizmo Elf, inventor of the giant toymaking machine. "It looks like everything is working fine, but things aren't

-
"We've got another email from Santa!" Jiller Elf called out.

-
Gizmo thinks the flanged prestidigimuggin is the problem. He's probably wrong.

-
The North Pole hears from Santa; tells everyone he's safe.

-
On a typical early December day at the North Pole, elves are very busy. They sort out Christmas lists, build toys, and generally get ready for the Big Night, Christmas Eve, when Santa Claus delivers gifts to all the children of the world. This, however, was not a typical early December day at the North Pole. Santa Claus was popped out of the North Pole during a demonstration of the modified Appendapulator, the main toy-making machine of the North Pole.

-
During a demonstration of an upgraded Appendapulator, the great toy-making machine of the North Pole, Santa Claus suddenly disappeared. Witnesses report that there was some sort of popping sound, and Santa was no longer there!

-
During a demonstration of the Appendapulator, Santa Claus was popped away from the North Pole.

-
The Appendapulator, the great toy-making machine of the North Pole, has just been modified by Gizmo Elf, Santa's Chief Inventing Elf, and the Appendapulator's creator.

-
When we arrived at Gizmo Elf's workshop, we were greeted by a closed door and the sounds of conks, bonks, boiks and boops from inside. Santa knocked on the door, and the noises stopped for a moment, followed by the sound of someone whispering. Suddenly there was a loud crash, a tinkle, a honk, and then the door opened. A small head with enormous glasses poked out.

-
Gizmo and Waldo are working on the Apendapulator, and everyone else waits to see what they're doing!

-
Santa Claus toured the grounds of the North Pole yesterday, making sure all is ready for the big rush to Christmas. He was accompanied by Mrs. Claus and Bernard Elf.

-
Will there be changes in the way the Elves get ready for Christmas?

-
Santa has a message for all the kids out there!

-
Get ready for another fun-filled adventure at Santa’s Village at the North Pole.

-
It's that time of year again. Readers of the North Pole Times are in for some special treats this year.
