It's still on. You just need new glasses. :P

Have you checked the batteries and fluid level in your glasses?


just make sure you use the right fluid, not this stuff:

No, I didn't buy myself anything. I am trying to get out of debt.

I couldn't find anything I thought I'd like or want/need.

You don't drink? I should have sent you my list.
I'm clearly not very bright.

A box of cigars (and one for my best old friend in SoCal), all the silver in GBs this year, a new pair of shoes, . . . that's good enough.

Thank you. November, December and January are expensive months for me.

No alcohol for 33 years and don't even know where to look for stuff with a label. :lol:

I am usually a big Festivus guy but my Secret Santa really got me in the mood for Christmas. So I got myself a pair of Roper boots from Tecovas: https://www.tecovas.com/products/the-earl-bourbon-calf 8-) .
(I am going to make it to Texas sooner or later)

I did buy my wife a roto tiller once for Xmas (small enough that she could handle it) and she was thrilled :thumbup: I trust that all my BS pals had a Merry meaningful Christmas!!

We finished the kitchen remodel and downstairs flooring replacement project December 22 and went to Texas December 23-27, so Santa was pretty broke, but we had a really nice Thai food feast yesterday. :clap:

Bought this at a New Years Day auction. Drives and stops, siren is LOUD. My wife thinks it would be great for local parades.

I saw it in the window and just had to have it... If someone "just has to have it", I am open to discussion.
