Christmas Greetings

This has been a difficult year for some of us with Mother Nature giving us Tornados, Floods, Bizzards, and Fires. Our family is grateful for good health well being and have enjoyed the year in spite of so many changes.

To all of you, posters, regulars and visitors, a Blessed Christmas and much success in the coming year. May you fire on all cylinders!


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years as well @Docnick. Happy Holidays too in case I offended some with the earlier greetings…although I have no idea how that could possibly be.

Best wishes for a Merry Christmas. I do have some advice for this evening (Christmas Eve)–don’t eat leftovers.
I read about some poor fellow who did eat leftovers, and while he was asleep, he heard a real clatter outside his house. He
"Sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the wndow he flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and
threw up his hash".

I’ve made a New Year’s resolution to not make comments like this on this board in 2014. We’ll see how many weeks it takes me before I find the urge to break this resolution.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!!

Happy Happy holidays.
May you spend a joyous time with your loved ones in the best of health .

Saw this awhile back and thought it was quite entertaining to read:

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even this mouse.
For I bit off its head, and shaved off its hair,
Stuck it in Timmy’s stocking, hung from the chimney with care.

The children asleep, waiting for Santa to come,
While visions of sugar…wait…what the f*k is a sugar plum?
Grandma in her ‘kerchief, Grandpa in his cap,
Had just settled down, for a long winter’s nap.

To say “just settled in” is a bit of a mistake,
Twelve years in those chairs, they won’t soon awake.
I think they’re fun, you can move them about,
I had just put Grandpa’s cold fist in his mouth.

When out in the yard, there arose such a clatter,
I looked onto the lawn to see only bone and grey matter,
The moon lit the moisture on the new-scattered flesh,
The blood yet to freeze, you could tell it was fresh.

Then, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But eight stupid little dogs … err … tiny reindeer,
Strapped to a driverless sleigh were these fawn,
And I knew Santa’s remains were all over my lawn.

He always was a bit jolly, a little bit high,
And what’s Christmas Eve without a DWI?
I took a seat in the sleigh, between seven large bags,
Peered over the front, and read off the dogs’ tags:

“Now, Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!”
What lonely sicko names their stupid dog Vixen?
“On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!”
Your master is mangled, and surely we’ll miss him.

But Christmas goes on, with me at the reigns,
Sure beats hanging out here and cleaning up brains,
But the reindeer won’t budge, kinda makes you wonder,
If they know that I was in The god**m Deer Hunter.

“C’mon silly dogs! I know you recall,
how to dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”
That got them started, and to the house-tops they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys, and the Angel of Death too.

So to all you naughty kids, don’t ever fear,
I’m running the show, and this might be your year,
You might hear me cackle, as I swoop down like a hawk and
Howl “Merry Chris-mas to all, from your pal Santa Walken!”

Note to the little ones: Do not worry about your fat friend. There are 17 confirmed immortals in the world. I am one of them. Santa is another. He will be back next year. Hopefully he’ll lay off the sauce.

Yes back at you all merry Christmas. I was actually amazed that the clerk at mills fleet farm actually proudly said that instead of happy holidays. It’s actually been a good year with no storms, new grand kid, 30% market etc.

As far as left overs, remember the 2 2 4 rule. Two hours out on the table, two inches thick, and four days and throw it out. Careful of crock pots, careful of meats, and wash those veggies. You don’t know where they came from anymore.

Thank you Docnick, and a very merry Christmas to everyone. Don’t forget about those who will be alone on Christmas, give them some encouragement and a hug. There would be no Easter without a Christmas and no Christmas without an Easter so remember also about the real reason we celebrate this season.

You folks really know a lot about cars. I learned a lot of interesting stuff here from the discussions this year. And better yet, I was able to find the cause for my Corolla’s high idle speed problem, so thanks for everybody’s help on that one. A year end Happy Holidays & thanks to all!

hmmm … Still unsure about that cabin-filter fan power consumption issue … oh well, that’s something for next year … lol …

Merry whatever!

Best wishes for a merry Christmas to all of you. I know I’ll have one. All my girls are home tomorrow, and I’ll be there, too. Can’t beat that.

The Christmas wishes are very nice to those regulars who frequent this site and others who read the post but should not be taken as a way to make this place too much of a club so as to discourage new posters whether with questions or answers. That can spell the deterioration and eventual end of a good web site.

With that, I wish for everyone to have a Merry Christmas.

Now that half the family is napping and the others are have taken to their toys and games…
Happy Hollidays youall.

No matter what your religion, it’s still a time of year for giving and good wishes.

And now to the kitchen go I for to insert the ham and 'taters into the oven.
