Smile Just stopped by to say, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

Yea, it's been awhile. Wanted to wish BMWLT.com a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year. Oh, and Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and any others I may have missed.

Y'all take care, and try to get along with those relatives of yours.

Re: Just stopped by to say, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

Hey, Moe!
Why I oughtta...
Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

And a most Joyous Christmas, uh, celebration of the pagan ritual of the return of the earth to the direction of Northern Hemisphere to you too!

How have you been? Have a bike underneath you yet? I put 40 miles on a dealer's 2009 Connie ABS yesterday. Had he made me an offer I couldn't refuse, I would have bought it. He didn't, was firm on his price. Wouldn't even try to get me to buy. I thought we were in a tough economy. Maybe that dealership had heard of hard times, but just refused to participate in them.

Doing well, thanks. Took a whole year off without a bike. Gonna buy one in the Spring. Unless something amazing comes along, it'll be a Connie ... probably used. I'll come down and see ya next Summer.

Re: Just stopped by to say, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

And from Dunnunda: Merry Christmas


'Twas the night before christmas;
there wasn't a sound.
Not a possum was stirring; no-one was around.
We'd left on the table
some tucker and beer,
Hoping that Santa Claus
soon would be here;

We children were snuggled up safe in our beds,
While dreams of pavlova danced 'round in our heads;
And Mum in her nightie,
and Dad in his shorts,
Had just settled down to watch TV sports.
When outside the house
a mad ruckus arose;

Loud squeaking and banging
woke us from our doze.
We ran to the screen door,
peeked cautiously out,
snuck onto the deck,
then let out a shout.

Guess what had woken us up from our snooze,
But a rusty old ute
pulled by eight mighty 'roos.
The cheerful man driving
was giggling with glee,
And we both knew at once
who this plump bloke must be.

Now, I'm telling the truth
it's all dinki-di,
Those eight kangaroos fairly soared through the sky.
Santa leaned out the window
to pull at the reins,
And encouraged the 'roos,
by calling their names.

'Now, Kylie! Now, Kirsty!
Now, Shazza and Shane!
On Kipper! On, Skipper!
On, Bazza and Wayne!
Park up on that water tank.
Grab a quick drink,
I'll scoot down the gum tree.
Be back in a wink!'

So up to the tank those eight kangaroos flew,
With the ute full of toys,
and Santa Claus too.
He slid down the gum tree
and jumped to the ground,
Then in through the window
he sprang with a bound.

He had bright sunburned cheeks
and a milky white beard.
A jolly old joker
was how he appeared.
He wore red stubby shorts
and old thongs on his feet,
And a hat of deep crimson
as shade from the heat.

His eyes - bright as opals -
Oh! how they twinkled!
And, like a goanna,
his skin was quite wrinkled!
His shirt was stretched over
a round bulging belly
Which shook when he moved,
like a plate full of jelly.

A fat stack of prezzies
he flung from his back,
And he looked like a swaggie
unfastening his pack.
He spoke not a word,
but bent down on one knee,
To position our goodies
beneath the yule tree.

Surfboard and footy-ball shapes
for us two.
And for Dad, tongs to use
on the new barbeque.
A mysterious package
he left for our Mum,
Then he turned and he winked
and he held up his thumb;

He strolled out on deck and his 'roos came on cue;
Flung his sack in the back and prepared to shoot through.
He bellowed out loud
as they swooped past the gates-
'MERRY CHRISTMAS to all,
and goodonya, MATES!'

Merry Christmas, Joe. I know it is safe to say that to you.

I am still grateful for your help every time I fire up the LT and the HID kicks in.

No bike all this time, eh? Sure, but how many guitars have you bought!

Merry Christmas Joe. The very first "helpful hand" on this forum way back in 2006 for me was your steps to installing HID headlights. So, thanks again.

Re: Just stopped by to say, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

I have been known to frequent the Texas Roadhouse in Hickory, NC. Never saw anyone quite so "flashy" in ours.

I hope you all are enjoying Christmas Day. Since we're getting rain, my son and I are working on a project for his 3rd grade science fair. Not so much rocket science, thank goodness.
