Xmas is coming and it's my favorite time of year. I am like a big kid when it comes to Xmas. I usually go to my folks' house and sit around with the family then open some presents. Then I play with my new gadgets or whatnot. Of course I eat a lot of good food and a lot of junk food as well. Then to top it all off, I watch the NFL games. Last year was great watching the Bears clinch the NFC North on Xmas day. Nothing like Xmas. What do you do for Xmas?

I have a personal rule to never work on Xmas. I just feel that some of us work so dang hard it seems that they own our souls. I know I am still relatively young, but I put such a high price on family that I often tend to be willing to let a job go if they don't respect my time. I hope you don't have to work unless you want to, MO. Have a good Xmas, my friend. :cheers:

I work also! As the owner/operator of the Alarm Rsp business I have no choice. However, we spend Christmas Eve with my son & daughter-inlaw. Christmas day we go to my brother's home with the rest of the family. Of course if a call comes in, I leave and come back when I can. TO ALL OF YOU GUYS & DOLLS (PANZER'S BETTER HALF) HAVE A BLESSED AND GREAT CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Nope, don't cut it. Anyone could have done that. It has to be a photo of YOU actually doing work. I bet there is no such photo. :)

Christmas eve and Christmas day are big events down here, lots of extended family and little ones. My mom can usually count on 35-40 people showing up on Christmas day, and it's been like that for all of my 40+ years. After opening the gifts, my Dad, my cousins, and I usually head out to the swamp for an evening deer hunt. I've only missed a couple of those days, not by choice, and as much as I complain sometimes, it's really a special time for all of us. So, I want to wish all of my friends on the Forum a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and a blessed and prosperous New Year. (And I hope you all have NIB FS 2000s under the tree.)

Hot coffee, mountain dew, water, chased wtih liberal doses of 'No Doze.'

I've been at work since Friday evening (had a couple hours off Sunday for my Eldest daughter's bday party and a 4 hour nap), and won't get off until Tuesday 0600..

I'm gettin' real tired, but I have an MDT with limited internet access..

Yeah, next MONTH when I actually get a chance to drink it.. I'm sure that I need more than 4 hours to recover after imbibing, and until the new year I'm working 20+ hour days (longest stretch is 30). So, it'll have to wait until I can guarantee myself at least 24 off.
