If I didn't get socks, it wouldn't be Christmas

Gary, the way you are describing it, who proposed tp whom?

And, of course, congrats. Hopefully we'll all get to meet her at the next swap meet

Hey Gary - I got a few sox too, but at least I got them 'cause most of my old ones have holes in the heels. Ha! Ha!

My sweetie got me a GREAT MAGNIFYING LAMP for the worktable.

Of course, the obligitory clothes from family members, well appreciated, and a pointed handheld, 12000 opm, sander.

Now I can really get the sawdust all over the house

I didn't get any airplane stuff, Bah Humbug.
My better half, said I kept changing my mind,
so she couldn't figure what plane stuff I wanted,
so my family bought me a big screen TV.
Wow, my G2 simulator looks great on this.
So I guress I did get some plane stuff for Christmas.

Got socks, stocking caps (gotta keep the solar panel from frostbite ), bomber style jacket , books.
Don't complain about getting socks for christmas, especially if you have to wear safety footwear- they are knowing for killing the toes of socks.

Just a quick note to say a heartfelt thank you for offering the congrats on my engagement. Actually Nuker, I did the proposing a couple or three months ago and gave her a diamond first. This just made it official both ways!!!

Glad everyone had a great time on the holidays! Sounds like all are pleased with the gifts even though it may not be exactly what you may have wanted. To quote an old saying that holds true with me "Its the thought that counts!" And being with loved ones at this special time is all that one could really hope for!

Heres wishing each and every one of you, a very Happy and prosperous New Year!
