    I was just informed by my hubby that it was NOT a black onyx, instead it's a Blue Sapphire. EVEN BETTER since blue is my favorite color!

    Let's see, I or Tom didn't receive anything for Marvin, but I did get 2 DVDs Grease and McHale's Navy, make that three if you count Back to the Future, a Black onyx necklace fromt the hubby, a pair of Christmas sock slippers from Sean, Grease was from Megan. My mom got me a cedar gazebo bird feeder. My aunt in North Carolina sent me a collection of body lotion from Victoria's Secret, and I think that was it. PRegner and daughter gave the family a $25 gift card to Best Buy. Of course, after Christmas is when I figure out what I really wanted.

    Shopping done...got some real tools...just a Craftsman socket set...they only had the big sets or the dinky sets left...I got as much as I could on the gift cards I had. No cheap stuff anymore (those stay home for house stuff).

    Hey, there is a theme here...not what did you get for Christmas...but what did your Jeep get for Christmas. (Although I got the bling.)

    Edit: Got air! Wheeee!

    well my Jeep made out pretty okay this year:

    1) CD/MP3 Player

    2) 3 Ton Floor Jack w/ Stands

    3) CB/Antenna/Speaker combo with everything i need to install it.


    CB is going in tomorrow it should prove to be an interesting project.

    The only place it's going to fit in my Jeep is in the Tuffy Center Console where a "CD" player should go. (I was told by numberous people that if you mount a CD player in that location it will skip due to the angle).

    My problem is that there is a welded in lip running all the way around in this compartment that was designed for a CD player. This lip is preventing the CB from sliding into the space once it's gone the CB should fit in without a problem.

    My plan:
    Take out the tuffy console and bust out my grinder and get rid of the lip that is in the way then install the CB. I like this set-up for the CB the best. My CD player is installed where a traditional stereo would be and it has a detachable face so it's good to go for security purposes. If i can get the CB into the spot in the console that was made for the CD player that will give me desired security for it. All i will have to do is plug in/un-plug the CB mic when i am/am not using it.

    EDIT: After consulting my build team for this project we are going to attempt a different approach. The bottom of the tuffy console where a CD player would go has no floor. I might get lucky and be able to install the CB through the bottom and use the lip on the top as a securing device rather then grind it off......more to follow.

    Incase anyone was wondering the CB in question is the Cobra 29 LTD Classic (already tweaked and peaked).

    If i get motivated enough i might take pictures and do a write-up on it. I am not sure how much if any interest anyone would have heck the easy thing to do would be to buy a CB that actually fits into the tuffy console.....but what fun would that be?

    Next haul had a theme to it:

    Mom decided to do up a pirate's chest for me.

    I got a ton of earrings: pearls in all three colors, two pairs of opals, topaz in blue and yellow, her antique emeralds that used to belong to my grandmother, two pairs of rubies. I got black and white pearl necklaces and bracelets and a cameo pendant. A huge chunk of raw amber with bugs in it. Amethyst earrings and rings. The rings are proofs from a designer that my mother new back in the 1940s. They are set in silver. (I love antiques! ) And it was all wrapped in a large chunk of gold shot fabric to make a shawl with.

    The only thing she forgot to include was the pirate.

    You've met me and calling me Mikey still seems weird?!?!?


    With most of my friends we've all agreed not to shop for gifts for each other, rather we just buy stuff year round that we want. The group that exchanged last night are all new "military" friends that I didn't grow up with and that I don't have the same understanding with.

    I hate that Christmas has become so commercial, but it's still cool to get all the gifts from my wife and even more so to buy them for her. For us Christmas is the time to buy stuff that we normally wouldn't buy, either because we couldn't justify the expense (her) or because we'd just procrastinate and never get it (me)

    Oh, and the rest of the haul:

    A really cool old army style jacket.
    The Hulk dvd
    Little green army men, little blue cops, and little red firemen. (All in the style of the little green army men from when I was little)
    A tool bag for the Jeep.
    Tools to put in the tool bag and my new tool chest.(Screwdriver set, vise grips, pry bar, BFH. )
    A 1/43 scale Jeep CJ-2A that's freakin' awesome.
    And what my wife calls Sexy Socks. They're just heavy grey cotton socks with orange and beige stripes. They're comfy and she likes 'em.

    That's my surprise gifts. We each spent ~$150 to surprise each other and we got $100 to buy ourselves presents. I got a dremel kit and some books.

    I'll gladly trade you your taxed bonus for my non-taxed non-existant bonus.

    I got a couple of christmas cards. (which is exactly what I sent out).

    I quit exchanging gifts for christmas years ago. I don't see a point in spending too much money on something that someone may or may not want, while they do the same for me. I just go get what I want, and they can do the same (BTW, this years present is the jeep dog). It makes Christmas shopping much easier too.

    Besides, the commercialization of Christmas is just plain wrong IMO. Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to take my present to myself for a walk.

    Hope 'yall have a merry Christmas! Stay safe, and out of trouble.

    Let's see the only presents I was allowed to open so far: A DVD trilogy of Back To the Future! Tom knows I love that!! Also, a DVD of McHale's Navy!! Of course, my in-laws sent Tom & I a $100 check so that bought the surround sound DVD player!! Yay. Unfortunately or fortunately (however you want to look at it), Tom is at work right now helping keep our borders safe. He's the computer tech at March Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He keeps the radars going. Megan wanted to open one and I told her no. We are starting a new tradition. Waiting for the WHOLE family. My sister and her husband and daughter, my mom, my grandma & my brother and, of course, PRegner and his daughter Rochelle will all be over tomorrow. Now if only I can get 1million dollars I would have a terrific christmas. Oh well! Have a Merry Christmas. Even though I had rough patch tonight, I (my family) are having a tough one since my niece died in July she was only 4mos old. Trying to be there for my kids.
