Santa Baby......

....Can't think of Christmas gifts without Eartha Kitt's epic rendition of 'Santa Baby'.....:eek:

Santa must have thought I was VERY good this year, as I was blessed with some great stuff!!!

--An amazing cast piece that now occupies a place of honor in my bedroom ! :cool:
--Cash
--Gift Cert to a fave bookstore...
--jewelry!
Drum Roll--- and the kids gave me a JBL Explorer!
'Mom's first gun'! Awww....:eek:
Gotta love 'em for saying 'Merry Christmas, Mom! --Now get out there and kill something!'
[wiping a tear] Guess I raised 'em right after all.....:cool:

the fatman needs better intelligence...

I rarely make out during the holidays because I can never bring myself to tell anyone what I want. Or, I'm so fussy about my gear that any/all attempts [loved-ones make to add to my arsenal] usually fall short.

Useful gifts this year include an ImpulseII and a fillet knife.
Honorable mention goes to my shower radio and Trivial Pursuit :D.

....and Cynthia, thanks for injecting that atrocity-of-a-Christmas-song into my brain. For the duration, any violent tendencies I have will be accredited to you.

Ted,

We have the song on CD so I can burn you a copy of it for our road trips.;)

I got cash to get a new Elios suit and my daughter got a new swimsuit for the pool.:D

The best gift was a night of baby-sitting from my sister-in-law so my wife and I can actually go out on a date!:D
