Ahh ... a thread with "Merry Christmas" in the subject that is indeed that.
Cooked the big Christmas gumbo last night (it was cold enough to keep
safely on the back porch all night) and have it, and the dirty rice
dressing in the dutch oven, on the stove as we speak.
All the other little heads are tucked in their beds, and the house
smells like Christmas ...!!
ALL of you wReckers, and your's, have a very Merry Christmas! Stay warm
and be safe ...
I will take that to heart.
I got some kinda high tech, thermal long underwear from Santa this year. I
put it on immediately cuz it is frozen all over. With enough layers, it is
possible for even an old fart to stay warm!
I know that you like that funny Cajun food. More traditional fare here. The
missus informs me that this will be a "Prime Rib Christmas". No argument
from me on this choice of holiday fare.
And a very merry christmas to all. May you all be happy and politically
Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho,
and a happy new year.
P.S. Why do wimmin always buy crappy tools for christmas? (and clothes that
you will never wear) Not only is is something I would never use or need,
but it is one of those pretty "consumer grade" tools. Ya know, the ones that
fall apart after using a few times. I will be taking it back tomorrow and
buy something I actually can use.

Second that emotion. May 2010 be a good year for everyone.
Same to everyone here. Hope it's a great year for everyone.
SWMBO did buy me a couple of sweaters. They'll do. Long ago I
convinced her not to buy me tools. OTOH, the kid gave me a Woodcraft
gift certificate. That'll work; there should be some sales coming
[*] I noticed that Woodpeckers has a sale on ball-bearing
full-extension drawer slides. I'll have to order a couple packages
(10 pairs per).
Cuz they shop in department type stores that basically sell over
priced crap designed to satisfy 80% of the market in some half assed
For years tried without success to promote giving checks rather than
goods for presents.
After all, checks get deposited back in the various bank accounts.
The junk stays on the shelves.
No harm, no foul.
I finally figured it out ... give'em a Rockler, or WoodCraft, catalog
with stuff circled ... stuff that you would not normally buy but
wouldn't mind having if someone gave it to you as a gift. By that simple
expedient I scored the following in the old stocking this morning:
... oh, and a magnetic push stick?? Apparently an independently made
decision ... win a few, lose a few! :)
Just kidding ...
