Season’s Greetings from Stray Leaves.
For over fifteen years, the late Thurston James played Santa Claus at the Sherman Oaks Galleria in Sherman Oaks, California. Countless children, former children, and children at heart recall Thurston fondly.
Here Thurston shares a special Christmas tune he wrote and performed for his own grandchildren. The pictures are from the 1909 Victorian home in Danville, Kentucky, of Thomas Stratton Lanier Sr. & his wife Margaret Sallee, related to the James family. The home as seen was formerly owned by Stray Leaves publisher Eric James.
