Christmas is nearly here
« on: December 08, 2010, 09:53:42 AM »
It is now getting fairly close to Christmas, and because a few of the members go away for it, I have decided to wish you my best wishes now.

Click on this pic.




And it looks like Bandit and myself are starting to get into other things as well.



When you use one on your envelope, just imagine what part of us you will be licking (I've got my pants down in anticipation). :lol: :lol:

BTW, these will disappear just after new year.


All the best from us all.

Hi Bogs,
There's no need to rub it in, still, at least the days start to get longer about then.
Bah, Humbug,

no, sorry, Ned

John

Thanks for that Christmas greeting, it's one way to get the whole family involved. :D :D

After seeing the new postage stamps I don't think I'm going to be sending any cards or letters any time soon.  :lol: :lol:

Cheers  :beer:

Thanks everyone.

Ralph,

That was the one I did a couple of Christmasses ago, so I recycled it, I didn't do one last year, for obvious reasons.

BTW, my drive is getting rather full, and needs emptying again.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Come on everyone, lets get into the spirit of the thing, post up your cards, videos and messages.

We can delete the whole post in the new year, after it is all over.

Just to get it going, here is a card to send to your boss.

Hi Bogs,
Just watched your video, my God that pain relief system you have must be working wonders.
Ned
PS If I have not cocked it up there should be a Christmas card that I pinched from the net a few years ago.
I hope all of your Christmases are happy ones.
Edit you guessed it I posted the wrong one, it should have been the one with writing.

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

Thanks for putting that up. I have always had a soft spot for Snoopy for some reason. That is a new one that I have never seen before. Merry Christmas.  :D :D

It seems that the time is now upon us, sooner for some than others.

We would all like to wish everyone a very happy festive season, and hope the New year brings everything you could want out of life.

We would also like to thank everyone who has given us moral and physical support over our difficult times this last year or so even though a few of you have been going thru the same sort of thing.

But please remember, no matter whether you have a religion or not, think of other people.

No matter how badly off you are, whether physically, mentally or possession wise, there is always someone worse off than yourself.

Just give a thought for those people at this time of year, and if you can help an unfortunate, please do.


From myself, Mal my wife, John Henry our grandson, Bandit the dog & Vinnie the mog.

...Santa will be here in a couple of hours and I have noticed that as he gets older he has been tending to dump the heavy stuff off first!   Bring it on old man! :ddb: :ddb:

Christmas greetings to you all and I trust he still has a few choice items when he gets to your place!

Andy,

If that translates to
Accept your big bonus,  use it wisely to hire a big bed with a big blond and ensure you have a big bottle of martini.

Then,  Yes,  I'm all for it.
