Santa's Elves aren't the only ones trying to get through the Christmas rush. Yoder's Elves are busy in Amish Country getting that long awaited Amish Camper roadworthy. If you listen closely, you can hear the tack tack of hammers echoing through the cool air as the sun sets on the horizon.

What an interesting vehicle. If that's a camper, do they sleep in the loft? Really neat.

About this one I would not hesitate. This is very good example!
Of course you can always change it any time you have some that you like better.

I can hear them (and my hearing isn't all that good anymore), Tick. I hear them saying over and over again, "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, to all!"

You have visualized a dream OFT (Owd Fella Tick). Viewing the state of the rooftop of the 'Amish camper', hope that this dream won't become a nightmare.

Excellent entry for the contest. Success Ron.

Regards, Cornelius.

I like what you have done with the carriage (if you can all it that). A head in the window would have been even better.This will make a very good entry Tick.

A wonderful entry Tick. This has the look of the early woks of the English artist L S Lowry.

Does it come in a stretch version? A fella could get a crick in his neck trying to sleep in this camper. It gives a new meaning to the word RV-ing.

Creative work Tick. Best of luck in the contest.
