Thanks Peter. But it's not Christmas yet. At least on the East Coast....

Maybe on the West where you keep funny time?

I'm off work for a few days and figured I'd get things done early. Being Irish and all I can't vouch for my condition in the days to come :D

According to a stupid customer tonite I started my celebrating early. A co worker and I after he left we had to sit on the floor because we were laughing so hard.

Here is what happened that gave me the much needed laugh.

I came into work early tonite so my co worker gave me my present early. It was a white hot chocolate mix. I was delighted and had to try it out. I went into the back room and boiled some hot water and brought it up front. Meanwhile in walks an older man.

He is watching me while I am measuring out the white stuff on a silver spoon. I am sniffing it because it smelt so delicious and my nose started running so I started sniffling...

I turned around to see this man's mouth drop and when my co worker asked if she could help him, he couldn't take his eyes off of me. Then, it hit me.

I started laughing and said, " this is hot cocoa!"

I still don't think he believed me cause I wished him a Merry Christmas and he said, " yeah right."

LOL.

We laughed sitting on the floor hysterically and laughed even harder thinking... what if he would walk back in! I left the coke for my boss for tomorrow. ;)

I'm probably the only guy in my entire class that didn't do that....but everybody wanted to see me on it because they said I would of been a riot.


The 2 reasons I didn't do it:


The issue of the heart rate running 200 beats a minute

and

watching so many of my friends go on 3 day binges, disappearing off the face of the earth after blowing through 100's of dollars and no benefit.

Too addictive...way too addictive of a drug that back then was just outrageous expensive. Pretty much for kids with money.

I'll stop talking about a White Christmas for some. Website looks good. Hope you reap the results.

That's me at rest.

On a good day.

I think we all know where you're going at this time of year Peter. It's genetic and you simply cannot help it.

Merry Christmas everyone

I've put pics on other sites of my Christmas Display
So I thought I would share here too
Biggest display since 2006, next year will be bigger
Currently broad casting Christmas music on my own channel - ELF 101.1
I have about a 4 hour playlist of music
Lights will be animated next year...probably not to music

Even the truck is decorated, lights work while I am driving

Nice job on the lights Dave,
Now it feels like Christmas.

I'll be with my family tonight.
Got the last service calls done for the night, and the last toilets picked up.

I'm looking forward to hot chocolate tonight.

Walking up to the old family home, I look in the window to see a few of my relatives eating on Christmas Eve.

This picture below was taken after 22 people had been eating.
I guess we could have had a few more.

And the tree.
It was one of my nicest Christmas's in years.
I love to get together with my family.
We just had a few this time, twentytwo.
It would be nice to get all sixty together.
We're getting pretty spread out though.

I've switched to all CFL's & almost all LED lights
I'm hoping to replace my icicle lights with LED next year
Even the tree went to LED's this year
I gave away my reg lights for the tree to someone who needed them

I do still have a LOT of C-9 strings - about 55a worth
If those go up again you may see the lights dim

Never used drugs.Worked with addicts part time for 13 years.There is nothing funny about drugs,as it is a world wide problem.Anyone who thinks drugs are something to kid about had better hope they don't ever have a problem with them.Best of luck to you.

Too late; I already did, currently doing them now (for the right reasons) and understand the whole picture.

Best thing my parents ever did was put me in drug rehab at 17. Had a problem, relapsed numerous times since then. Been clean for probably 7 years now but it's only a number: it can all disappear instantly with a return.

Survival comes when you finally become strong enough to overcome your demons. That, is why I jokingly poke fun of what I manage, daily.

Problems always start in the home, never forget that.

Police are looking for a red Ford 150 involved in the biggest heist of Christmas decorations in Amercian history.

It would take a big addition to store 'em.

And there's nothing wrong with a bit of weed.

Last Christmas items I bought were in 2007
Most I bought in 2006, and its all sitting in thebasement un-opened
I have everything I need for a few years
Well....I may pick up an Intermatic Digital 4 circuit timer

You want weed come over to the house
You can pull as much as you want out of my yard


I would of pulled a mirror out and start cutting lines, preparing for the madness :D:D:D

I went on a ski trip where some guys stayed up all night
It was snowing inside, idiots coulda stayed home to do that
I wanted to ski.....ticked me off...so next ski trip with another friend I warned him about my bad experience
I get in the blazer -there are 5 of us +gear...no sooner down the street then a guy pulls a mirror out
Must have seen the look on my face...Says..."want some" ?
Then they all started laughing at me as he took his contacts out
I was set up............
