    Gee, whiz, seems like useless clutter to support the sweat shops in third world nations, exploiting child labor, but, hey, what do I know?????

    Daddy, I'm tired. Where's my amoeba?

    It's next to your stuffed toxic mold, sweet dreams my dear.

    Fun stuff though.

    I'd completely forgotten about getting presents.

    There's a manufacturer of Antarctic-quality outdoor gear holding a close-out sale, and I was thinking about outfitting my kids this year with parkas and boots. Upon reflection, I suspect that this would be as appreciated as socks at a 2-year-old's birthday party. (I gave these to my son then, and he looked at them briefly, tossed the package over his shoulder, and went on to the next present. Ingrate.)

    Hmm. Must think.

    ETA: may I have a beach in New Zealand?

    I got socks the last 3-4 years and I was happier than a pig rolling in chit. Seems like either the dryer eats them or I wear threw them... go through a big pack in a year or so.

    As my wife will tell you, every year I buy the stuff that would be the Christmas present around the end of November or the first week of December. Did it again this year. Gotta honor tradition, ya know.

    The saw came last week and the generator arrives tomorrow. :red:

    Along Gamma's line, if anyone wants to sponser a kid this year, I can match you with one of mine that may need a coat, shoes, maybe even a litte fun present.

    Enough money to restore the old Ford
    A Woodstock Progress Hybrid
    A 10 or so acre woodlot of Red Oak to myself
    A new helmet/ear muff/face shield combo

    No list. Nobody can give me what I want for Christmas. As Kristoferson wrote in "Me and Bobby McGee"...I'd trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday. Christmas will simply never ever be the same as it was. :shut:

    No it won't. But you can build new Christmas memories (which I hope include that lovely little donut baker) this year. And go on from there.

    It's not how hard you can hit, it's how hard you can get hit, and get back up swinging.
