Toasty Claus was busy working on December 16th to get all your Yuletime goodies ready for you! Just an FYI for those of you who ordered signed books: when you received your shipping notice, that was the day we printed the shipping labels. Thorsten was a madman signing gobs of books on Wednesday, December 16th, and Santa Toasty's Elves were packin' fools all that day.



Santa's sleigh was packed and delivered all the books to the USPO today for delivery, so keep an eye out under your chimneys for your holiday joy!

This is a portion of the books he signed!

Thanks for the update Gina, and the absolutely freaking marvelous picture of Toasty Claus!  Teresa is right, the Mahn never takes a bad picture x 100........

A message from Sheela Mak who ordered the book and got the e-mail, she is not a member of this board, so asked me to post this:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Ladies, thank you, thank  you, thank you, I can't wait to get the delivery.  Sorry, I can not reply to the e-mail itself.  Thank you for the beautiful picture.  I am going to save this picture forever with the book and think that TK was signing MY book when you clicked, LOL.  If Toasty Clause is having writer's cramp, please send him to Chicago for a good massage
Thank you to Santa Toasty's Elves again!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The crazy woman hasn't stopped her happy dance since she saw the e-mail this morning.  I can only imagine what she will be like when the book comes

Gina, thanks for sharing the photo and the info.  Thorsten must have been exhausted by the time he was done signing all those books, and you 3 also.  I must say I'm a little misty thinking about how wonderful he is signing all those and for all the people that bought the books, knowing that the proceeds will be used for such a good cause.  I can't wait to deliver the copies to The Haven, the kids are going to love them!

I can't believe how many books were ordered!!  That is fantastic.  I'm sure you guys were busy bees yesterday, but it is for a good cause.

Looking forward to getting my copy.  My daughter is really going to "roll her eyes" at me this time.  LOL!!

You're quite welcome, ladies.  The red arm was Kathy's, but Christy's arm on the other side was out of the view finder on my camera.

I, of course, had the catbird seat, because I was directly across and got to look right at him all afternoon.   Seriously, thank you to everyone who bought one or more books - it will go for a great cause, and working with TK is always a pleasure!

I know what you mean Mary - I met him twice at Disney and I never realized that the mind could block out good stuff till those times - I remembered everything said but pictures and a video someone shot one of the times helped a lot - I almost forgot the camera at least one of the times - When I found the video made by someone else I was almost afraid to watch but it was OK - Sure do love him - He is the best - Peggy

Gina thanks so much for the Christmas present - Toasty Claus signing his books and thank you to the Elves for all their hard work.

Gina, thanks for sharing the pictures.    I can't wait to get the books to distribute to those who wanted one, plus for those who I wanted to do something special for and what a great gift knowing the proceeds goes to such a great cause.

Gina, Christy and Kathy, thanks for everything you do and a very special thank you to Santa Toasty for taking the time to sign all those books.

Merry Christmas,

Beverly

June - I was gong to say that - My daughter is getting mine for me and I thought of telling her I had a picture of him signing my book - It is better that we never know cause then we can all think it is our copy - We need some cheer-up things to laugh about this week - Peggy (Of course this blizzrd cleanup is a distraction)

Received my copy and the one to give away on Saturday!  What a wonderful book.  Still waiting to hear if the one to CO got there yet!  Thanks so much for all you did to get these out and a big Thank-you to Toasty Clause.  The book it simply wonderful.  I have to say I read each poem once and some a few times.  Yes ..... I do have my favorites!  Now I want his other book as well.

Merry Christmas to all of you and please, please pass the message to TK of Thank you for taking the time to sign all of those books but for also writing it as well.  Now that he has some "spare " time maybe he can work on the next one?  Ciao to all!

IT'S HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    I can't believe I have a little piece of TK in my hands.  I haven't been very happy as of late but this has definately brought a smile to my face.  Thank you so very much TK for brightening what has been a very dark few months.  I will always be a fan... I will always admire you... and you will always have a piece of my heart.

So glad you got the book Teresa - I hope that things start looking up for you - You know you can talk to us here any time - We will be here - I think we are all depressed about what is happening - I know I am and the stress shows - My daughter is giving me the book and she is also giving me another Red Wing shirt - She is so good to me - The book came to where she works but they could not find it at Hopkins but they did eventually locate it - Hopkins has a lot of mail - Now that it is OK I can say it was a little funny as she told her dad that they delivered it but just didn't know to who - Was not funny then but is now - Just hang in there Teresa because you have a lot of friends here - Peggy

I wanted to let you guys know my friend Cheryl received her book.  She is a old grade school friend of mine, that happen to have found me on Facebook.  She saw my many pictures of TK and I (LOL how can she miss it given it is my profile picture ) and was totally jealous LOL.  Anyway she loves TK and when you guys mentioned the autographed book offer, I sent it to her specifically knowing she would be interested.  She wrote this to me
Quote:
Cindy I got my autographed book today in the mail, the book is magnificent. I can't wait to read it to the Grandkids!!! It will be on my coffee table for all to see
  She also said again that she has read it a few times already.  I need to thank you and TK for making this offer possible, you made a lot of people happy that don't or hasn't had the luxury, as many of us have, to meet him in person to get a signed book.

Thanks Again
Love and Merry Christmas to you all
Cindy

Thank you all (Thorsten, Kathy, Christy, and Gina) I gave the book to my sister as a Christmas gift and she was very touched.  The poetry is beautiful as is the book itself and the autograph is the frosting on the Christmas cookie!!!

The book has been received, enjoyed, and is currently the foundation of several writing lessons for my second grade students.  Ever since I used TK's poem "Old Friends" to teach the correct use of quotation marks to my second graders, I have been looking forward to finding ways to use his other pieces in my classroom.  Such fun!  And....now that I can no longer view him on my screen, this is another way to satisfy my addiction to all things TK.  I pop in his CD when I get to school to  listen to "that voice",  read his poetry and prepare my lessons.   Life can be good again.  Thank you to the generous and  multi-talented Thorsten Kaye, Kathy, Christy, and Gina.  You rock!
