The Bowie Baysox are celebrating Christmas in July with “Manny Claus,” and you can too. The first 1,000 fans over age 13 at Bowie's July 24 game at Prince George's Stadium will be given Manny Machado holiday bobblehead dolls . Machado is wearing a Santa Claus suit and holding a candy cane bat. The Baysox have not said whether Machado posed for the bobblehead in person, so I am imagining that he did until I'm told otherwise. The Orioles are in Seattle on the 24th, so it's safe to say the person in the Santa suit will not actually be Machado.  Machado spent 109 games in Bowie in 2012, with a .266/.352/.438 with 11 home runs and 59 RBI before he joined the Orioles for the team's playoff run. He was a Platinum Glove third baseman in 2013 despite his knee injury, though this wonderfully bizarre promotion might be the highlight of his season so far. Machado is batting coming off a five-hit day, and is batting .395 with four home runs in his last 10 games, though that streak was divided by a suspension for his bat-throwing incident that brought him scorn from across baseball.

Reggie Arthur pulled an electric Razor scooter he'd bought his 8-year-old granddaughter, Shay Divers, for Christmas into the Mondawmin Mall Target store Thursday. The scooter — bright purple, her favorite color — was great, Arthur said, but it had a defective back wheel. Arthur and his granddaughter were two of the thousands of area shoppers lured back to stores the day after Christmas to return gifts, cash in gift cards and look for bargains. The stores, many with expanded hours, are hoping to attract shoppers this week to remedy what has been a so-so holiday season.

Decades ago radio and television personality Art Linkletter hosted a television show called "Kids Say The Darndest Things. " And they did. Presently many kids think adults say the darndest things or at least one adult - Megyn Kelly of Fox News who declared that Santa is white. Not just his beard, his eyebrows, his hair and the trim on his red suit, but his complexion. The backlash was swift, and Ms. Kelly quickly became the butt of late-night liberal jokes. Nonetheless, I have a measure of empathy for Ms. Kelly since one December mere days before Christmas, my eldest child, now in university, startled me when he asked, "Daddy what color is Santa?"

Four more days remain until St. Nicholas arrives. By this time next week, there will be nothing left but leftovers. Last weekend in church, our minister blessed the straw in the manger. The story goes that if a husband/father takes a piece of straw and keeps it in his wallet or pocket, his family will never go hungry. May that be my wish for you and yours. The Ladies Auxiliary units from Singerly, North East, Rising Sun, Chesapeake City, Perryville and Water Witch fire companies gathered at North East Fire Hall for their quarterly dinner meeting.
