Brothers and sisters, Christmas is almost here. The tree is trimmed and I see all kinds of goodies under it. There's gonna be something this year for all of us, not like last year or the year before. Two years ago I was sure we'd get some awesome presents - but then Mom's old Pontiac broke down on the corner of 9th and Bolivar and she hadda buy a new transmission. Last year the roof sprung a leak and Mom hadda get it fixed - so there was nothing left for presents. But this year - oh this year - I gotta feelin' it's gonna be special. Looks like Uncle Mark got his bonus from Lincoln Electric early - and I think he gave Mom the where-with-all to get us some really neat stuff this year. In fact, I think I saw him out in the garage last night - ya think he's puttin' together that new Roadmaster bike I want? Man, I hope so.
So the holiday is almost upon us - time to put down all the petty fights we had this year and come together as a family. Yeah, yeah, I remember all the little dust-ups from this summer, but in the end we're still brothers-in-arms - at least for the rest of the season.
I know what I want this season - what are you looking forward to?
