Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa hopes you'll come out to RDO Equipment Wednesday for a John Deere photo op. And bring me back one of the free cookies while you're there!

On Wednesday (December 23) Santa will be at RDO (formerly Triple W Equipment) from 4-7 p.m. posing for pictures with the kiddos. There is no charge, but you need to bring your own camera. Santa will be seated in the traditional big chair by the tree, but if you want to get a photo of your youngsters on or near the John Deere equipment in the showroom, Santa told us he doesn't mind doing that.

And yes, there will be cookies, too! So put a little (John Deere) green in your Christmas and have some fun. RDO is located just 8 miles west of Missoula, off I-90 and Highway 93. Turn at Muralt's Travel Plaza and follow the signs. And Merry Christmas to one and all!
