I also received the package in the Mail yesterday..Now that is MY kind of Gift Wrapping!! Going to be hard to wait for sure, but hopefully will be on the Salmon River on Christmas Day.. Might be a couple i can put to use right away!!

The graveside service just barely finished, when there was massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance.
The little old man looked at the pastor and calmly said,

'Well, she's there.'

After God had finished the rattlesnake, the toad, and the vampire, he had some awful substance left with which he made a scab."

"The scab sells his birthright, country, his wife, his children and his fellowmen for an unfulfilled promise from his employer."

Got mine yesterday too.  A big thanks goes out to vicrider for all his hard work. 2 more weeks... yay. I used up the last of my vacation time at work and took off the whole week of Christmas.  That should give me some time to toss whatever Santa has sent me.


Thanks again to everyone who participated.

Got mine yesterday, Thanks Nick for hosting again this year.
