Merry Christmas to all.  Let it not be said that we lack for anything, as within these forums is enough happiness for all to enjoy!

My haul wasn't bad this year:
Cash ($150 total), 1903 Springfield Rifle, a nice shirt, about $80 total in food gift cards and a $25 card to Walmart.  I treated myself by buying an entire Bauhaus army with Batallion Transport case from Mario and some nice miniatures from Heresy and Hasslefree.  I'm headed over to a friends home in just a few minutes to site in my springfield (he has gun range at his house and laser gear that assists with getting the sites right).

 Happy Christmas and Happy New year to you all.
 I had my order of Hasslefree miniatures arrive the other Day.It is nice how Sally and Deb's put in the little extra's.
 I did not get much as I get everything I want when I see it just about.I did get a bottle of Southern Comfort that will go down a treat.Also got the new Privateers book for Warmachine,the Karman's one for AT-43 and TrollBlood Thumper gun for Hordes.

 Here is hoping for more time in 2008 to paint miniatures and hopefully get some gaming in.

 All the Best to one of the most friendly groups of people on the net.

"I'm happy, hope you're happy too."  Best wishes one and all; I hope Christmas was good to you.  I spent yesterday gettin' my butt kicked in Chronopia by my nephews.  'Natural born killers those two!!

Sounds like a couple of good hauls.  I threw a party for my department in the Ready Room and served some cookies and egg nog my wife had sent.  For entertainment I showed the holiday masterpiece of sin and redemption "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians" in MST3k Vision.

Sounds like someone made lemonade out of lemons. Brother, today more than any other I wish I could have stood your watch so you could be home with your family.

Veez:  I can only echo what Top said.

Josh:  eh-heh...  Trying to pick on little kids/newbies and finding tougher opponents than you thought.  That'll learn ya.

Haul:  Not much other than some cash from my folks, some clothes from my sister, a Dragon-head cane & some Star Wars calendars from Gun Moll and a new addiction in gaming courtesy of dmcgee1 and jjdoger (B5 A Call to Arms is alotta fun, damn it).

Veez

All I can say is Thank You. Knowing that there are guys like you watching my back mean I got exactly what I wanted for Christmas.

Take care brother and when we meet, the first few rounds are on me.

'Preciate the sentiment gents; it is my honor and privilege to serve all of you.  Rest assured we made the best of what we had (for New Years, I'll be showing Manos: The Hands of Fate-fun shall be had by all, under penalty of retributions).  I won't tell you what I miss the most, being away, but I bet you can all guess. ;D
