Maybe a tad early yet but I think I know what I would like, but I haven't a clue yet what I'll get! I actually do need some 16 1/2" collar shirts that I can do the collar up with a tie, for my men's clubs meetings. all my stuff is 15 1/2" or 16", and I've put on a little weight. Not very Christmassy I know, but if I don't get them I'll have to buy them! No more computer bits though, put my foot down on that, got too much as it is.

Christmas gifts are traditionally a special treat that you wouldn't normally buy for yourself to spoil you. My other half amongst other things is getting a large bottle of Beautiful perfume by Estée Lauder, that's the brand name BTW not just nice stuff :-)) Not that well known, but she likes it.

I'll close this sometime in Jan so it doesn't drag on until Easter!

Xmas hasn't arrived here in the US yet, Dinner will be enough, even a part of the Turkey.

I won half a leg of honey cured ham last Friday week at the pub.

I might have it finished by this coming Friday. :-D

Cheers.

I hope you realise Chris that you Zoom and Wiggo are all being too eager.

I promised myself I would never agree with my sisters that men are naughty boys.

I'm just going to give you boys something to keep you busy...

Dance

A question: If you had seven pieces of chocolate and Angela ate the best piece of chocolate how many Angelas would you be left with?

6 pieces of sub standard chocolate and one Angela with a full tummy.

One more Angela than was wanted, needed or invited?

Way too go Wiggo, I love ham but that much surely would last me a lot longer. LOL

I'm just probably have either Pork chops or cheeseburger with mashed potatoes or french fries.

For my kids I just send them a check anymore.

Well, I always buy my own Christmas Presents, all we agree on is a budget, so I already know what I'm getting as I bought them a few days ago, mine are:

Remington 783 in .223
Tikka T3X Super Varmint in 6.5x55 SM

So no guessing or mystery here anymore, which means there's no crushing disappointment and returns either, hardly the spirit of Christmas, but it's more efficient.
