What do you want,- G E T for Christmas?
« on: December 03, 2017, 03:57:25 PM »
I wonder what Santa (via me! - meaning: Santa is tasking me to go through the logistics of getting the present(s) that he has chosen for me)  will get me for Christmas.

What do I want?  Well,  my list, doesn t  mean I ll  get it though, -

1- Display case for my 'C' 1851 Navy
2- BlackBoxer 48 Pocket Pistol
3- Original Colt of  ?  model
4- Replacement cone set for my Walkers
5- Caped Great Coat

It wouldn't do any good to want anything I'm not going to get anything.

I will get my regular gift of a bundle of wool socks and a three pack of new shanties. Then likely a new book or two. These will come from the wife. I am not buying me anything for myself though.

We don't buy each other big gifts either; if we see something we want, we just buy it and say "Merry Christmas, happy birthday, etc." through-out the year.

Hi mazo, that's where we are with gifts. Every time we get something we say it is for a birthday in 2087 or later. At our age, we can't wait.  (7& (7&

For the actual birthdays or Christmas we give money to our local food pantry.

Regards,

Did nt  get anything on the list.  I did get a    v e r y   nice nautical brass circular wick lamp from Karlskrona Lampfabrik.  Very good quality. With a slender chimney.  This thing burns very bright and goes for 20 hours!

Got a nice Lands End shirt, 2 pair of hand made heavy winter socks and a few other little things.

Actually, I got me an early Christmas present...a Walker project from some nice feller on this forum (wink wink, nudge nudge) And I couldn't be happier about it...

Wife and I get whatever we want throughout the year so our gift is a substantial check to the local food bank/thrift store.

That s  very nice of you to say so Captain.  I do hope you can get it going again without sending it away to a heavy machine shop.  A lot of powder and ball went through those two old Walkers.

I still remember the last 'Josey Wales' I did with them,-  3 misfires and 2 multiple discharges.

A new shooting, everyday wear vest, everything else Harley Davidson. Bless her heart, my wife gifted me early by letting (yes LETTING ME, it's a good marriage) buy an old ironhead 79 Roadster to piddle with and ride last October.

That is great Roland. An old Iron Head! I have made the threat before, but I swear that I am going to show up at your place on my springer and talk to face to face like it should be. We live too close to each other to not get together every now and then.

Mazo, It's not luck...it took two bad marriages to finally get it right !! Our largess goes both ways.
Scooby, look forward to it in the future for sure, I've only ridden it three times and then Winter closed in. Been off bikes for 30 years so Springtime practice starts as soon as the weather breaks. Riding horses for all those years has my balancing procedures bassackwards !!! Below is a pic of my finished mod's, bags, forwards and a "period correct" air cleaner
