Santa done brung me...

...a whole wad of stuff. I got four dress shirts (which are shirts you dress up nice in, not shirts that double as dresses), about six or eight ties, two pairs of slacks (which become quite taut once stretched around my muscular lower limbs), about five pairs of blue jeans (which is really strange, since I don't wear blue jeans that much, but hey), the book Flags of Our Fathers, a bunch of new socks, a souped-up Crescent wrench with the automatically opening and closing jaw, a trunk organizer for the Volvo, and a couple of gift cards. The Barnes and Noble one from my brother- and sister-in-law I used to get a new wall calender and a bunch of bargain-priced books (because I need more books), and the Wal-Mart one from my mom I used for a new electric razor and a pair of shoes to replace my Dockers deck shoes that have begun to make my heels hurt REALLY badly.

I must have been a very good boy.

All I got was a box of chocolate! Oh and a box set of B.B. King and a book about Martin Guitars but other that that I didn't get much of anything.

Obviously, I was a much better boy than you.

Wow, you DID have a big Christmas. I did not know they made trunk organizers for Volvos--or is this a "one size fits all" kind of thing?

Oh, no--it was a generic canvas thing from Target that also came with a canvas roof-top carrier for the van.

I got to watch the grandkids opening their pressies on Xmas Eve. The youngest would come to the cam and ask if I liked her new "whatever". I wish I could have been there ftf but this was still great.

How sweet--was this over the Internet? If so, I hope you had a way of recording it.
