This may be my biggest scoop to date...I have found Santa's wife living in Midland under an assumed name. I'm not sure why she left Santa, but I have my ideas.
1. It's much warmer in Midland than the North Pole.
2. She may share my aversion to facial hair.
3. Santa only goes out one night a year and he doesn't invite her along.
4. Santa is a little too friendly with his elves.
Of course, we may never know the true reason because Mrs. Claus (Gayle) is not talking. I surreptitiously captured these photos of her and her house. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are 5000 bits of proof.
