    Here are my top 10 choices:
    1) Al Gore
    2) BO
    3) Walter (he was supposed to be at my house and I'll bet he decided to go to Wendell).
    4) Burl Ives
    5) Ralphie from A Christmas Story
    6) Jesse Helms
    7) John- he was so lost and couldn't find his way home back to TN
    8) Dave Hillman-trying to get John pointed back toward TN
    9) Brad- hunting for his next ex-wife or for Ralphie.
    10) William-chasing a tornado

    The Carolina Hurricanes. They sure didn't show up to play hockey tonight, losing 5-1 in Tampa...

    I give up. Who?

    Did not see this thread till this morning.

    We have had record crowds this year so I was expecting about everything but not this so here is what happen.

    I was out in the display preparing for the show because we are doing the magic and santa show this week.

    HERE IS A HINT : Security people showes up at the display 4 hours befor the show. Details was discuss , and they sat things in motion for the visit.

    I was totally surprise.

    It certainly rules out Easley. The clue didn't say the person was headed for Central Prison.

    Evidently, my first ten picks were not correct. Here are 10 more:

    1) Liberace-Good choice. He would sparkle without any lights hooked up.
    2) Kool Aid Man- He would break stuff in the yard when he busts in though.
    3) Rip Van Halen-An old guy that sleeps a lot and has long hair but is hated by Sammy Hagar.
    4) Governor Bev Purdue- she probably was looking to be useful; that is a novel idea for her. As far as I know she wasn't a school teacher but has a EdD in education.
    5) TSO- This is a half-hearted pick as I didn't smell anything burning last night.
    6) Mel Welch- see pick 5 above
    7) Waxhaw Larry- If he came he would install a train, fix everything then leave. Larry come visit my display please.
    8) Amelia Earhart- she thought your minitrees were landing lights.
    9) Jack and Charity- Charity would have wrapped some miditrees for you then left some really awesome cake. Hey Charity, you forgot to do that at my display. I was cheated.
    10) My dogs- they enjoyed barking at Mel's Virtual Santa so much they decided to check out your display.


    People I know it couldn't have been:

    Santa Claus - his suit is in a box in my garage. I guess it could have been a naked Santa. Boy that would have scared the kids and me too.

    My ex-wife- Had she visited you wouldn't have advertised it and would need anti-depression drugs.

    Here are two more hints.

    4. The guest is in public office.
    5. The guest is married and between them they have 4 children and 6 grand children.

    awesome! Must have been fun.

    Though I hear those security types can be thorough in their searches. Good thing you turned off all the explosives and didn't tell Mel about the visit...

    Too bad she didn't tweet about it last night!
