Last Blog for 2011

Yep, this is my last Blog for this year. Man-o-Man, where did the year go? I can’t believe it's OVER!! Next Blog will be Sunday and that will be New Years Day!! We sure had a wonderful Christmas and a fine dinner at our friend and neighbor's Paul and Nancy’s place… Wow.....I mean Turkey and Ham and all the trimming's. I was so full and content that I dozed off the minute my feet went up when I hit my recliner….

Ms. Megabyte2 enjoyed all the fine compliments she received for writing the Blog on Christmas day. I enjoyed having her step in for me. Maybe I can talk her into it again sometime....ahhhh... like New Year's day maybe? Ms. Pat tells me we are going up to the Activities Center on New Years Eve to a DANCE!!  What?  Who me???  Naw.... not me.  That will be some guy that looks like me and has the same name but not me!! No Sir...not me!!

Ms. Pat with one of her Christmas Presents. A pretty new set of pots and pans. She can’t wait to use them and I can’t wait to have her use them!  She has on her Christmas shirt that says “Dear Santa, I can explain”. Now I had to think about that one for a while but then I’m kinda slow…..

We are like my friend Nick Russell author of the Gypsy Journal . We very rarely get each other any Christmas presents. Throughout the year, if we need something, we usually just buy it. So at Christmas time, we feel that anything we purchased all year that we really wanted was our Christmas present.  Just being alive and together is plenty good enough Christmas present for us!

We had a wonderful time celebrating baby Jesus's Birthday at the beautiful Candlelight Services at our Church on Christmas eve. Then Sunday on Christmas day at Church Services the Pastor and three of his adult children performed an outstanding singing service in remembrance of the Birth of our Lord and Savior. They are all outstanding, gifted singers and musicians. It was spectacular and we left there with tears in our eyes!!

Ms. Pats new Dyson Vacuum……. It’s the “animal” and she loves it..

Christmas for me started way back in July when a very good friend presented me with this Pistol as a token of our friendship. Wow...what a gift!! It sure is a neat little gun and for those of you that want to know, it’s a Walther P22…….22 Cal, in a frame like a big gun. It is a very highly rated target pistol and very popular. Ms. Pat and I both love to shoot it and it is very accurate and reliable. Since ammo has gotten so expensive, many of us have resorted to using 22’s for target practice a lot of the time. This is a beautiful little gun for that and our 40 Cal Glock’s are home in their cases. I love this Gun!! Thank you again Santa, my friend!

More recent, I got this genuine San Angelo Rifle Bench Vise.   This will be neat for setting on my workbench to work on rifles but I have a special project for it. I believe I can easily make a quick attachment for it to be able to mount on my old Surveyors Tripod that I used when I had the large Internet Satellite Dish. That will make a very heavy duty and sturdy field rifle support. However, I left it up at our place in South Dakota. That’s the story of my life. Everything I need is up there and when I get up there everything I need is down here....such is life….Smile            

I have bored you enough about our wonderful Christmas, that lasted all year.  Soon we will start off a New Year and we can start getting Christmas presents all over again.  I’m ready...lets get started!!! By the way, what did YOU get for Christmas?

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
 
Please make it a SAFE one!  There's a lot of bad guys out there!  Take a look at Mike & Janna's Blog.

You and I would probably be the only two guys sitting at home while every one else is out doing that Vertical Wrestling stuff. Some call it dancing. Phooooey!! Couldn't drag me onto a dance floor with a herd of Buffalo hitched to my britches!!
Kelly and I are the same about all that Christmas gift giving stuff. Nice to know there are a few of us out here who think differently than the so called norm:))

Looks and sounds like you two had a marvelous Christmas! Did Ms. Pat ever give her explanation to Santa? Should be a good one!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Glad you had a nice holiday, and hope your dancing evening will be fun for both of you. Sometimes guys just gotta do what they gotta do if they want a meals cooked all year long in those new kettles????

How come Ms Pats gifts are all related to her having to work? You know, vacuum and cook dinner? Its just the ornery in me that makes me ask things like this, LOL! Maybe her explanation wasn't good enough......

I think there a lot of us geezers that dont exchange on Christmas, as you said we get what we need throughout the year..ok so I did give Sam some beer for his present. But that's a 2 edge sword...if he drinks enough of it he gets out on the dance floor !
