While driving in Williams Bay, the operation’s manager of the paper was riding with a reporter for last Wednesday’s delivery. The operation’s manager was opening a thrift store so she had some holiday stuff intended for store display in the back seat. The reporter, an aging man, reached in the back and pulled out a plastic statue of Jesus in the manger. The statue was very life like and about the size a real baby would be. The reporter was examining the statue when a woman approached the passenger window and knocked on the glass. The reporter held the statue on his lap with his left hand and pushed the button to lower the window with his right. The woman pointed at the statue and asked: “Yours?” The reporter looked down at the statue in his lap. The operation’s manager behind the wheel started to laugh. The woman at the window smiled, waiting.
The reporter thought for a moment, and then looked up and said: “yes, I guess so.”
