Hey everyone Happy Holidays to all. With the end of the year closing in on us I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season. I would also like to express my thanks in allowing me to be a part of your group . Though I have not been able to make any G2G yet I do look forward to meeting you all. Mark, Jim and Stan you have been great and I am proud to have you all as friends and neighbors . The New Year will bring new opportunities to meet and greet and I look forward to it. You all have a great chapter going here and I am glad to be a apart of it . God bless everyone and I hope your wishes and dreams come true.
I hope you and your families have a very Merry Christmas and a SAFE and SANE New Year!

I hearby declare unto all the FTE:Oklahoma Chapter that it is indeed that time again for the Griswald family (well, atleast my family bears a striking resemblance to them!) to gather around yet another turkey and ham that Grandmother was up ALL NIGHT LONG cooking. Therefore I thought that it would be a good idea for me too to wish you all a wonderful and merry Christmas and a happy New Years. Wait, there was also something else... something about "and to all a good night!"
Gee... too bad for you guy's I'm not more of a poet or actor or this coulda been a disaster.
Your Chapter Leader,

This poem is quoted from fishmandotcom in the offroad 4x4 forum 11-26-04, i thought it was appropriate for this thread and time of year......
‘Twas the night before Christmas, When all through the shop,
The lights where flickering, And my welder was hot,
The body hung over the suspension with care,
Hoping that Saint Nick will soon put a lift under there,
Closed my eyes and imagined being in bed,
But there where visions of pistons pounding in my head,
Now the welder has burnt my cap,
Letting me know I really need a nap,
From across the shop there arose such a shatter,
I ran right over to see what’s the matter,
There sat my windshield, with all that smashed glass,
I pulled the electrical chord too hard, sending tools into it in a mass,
Now I’m working on those bolts rusty and old,
Breaking my knuckles open on the steel so cold,
I bandage up and try again,
If it breaks, hope there’s an extra bolt in the can,
The truck bed filled with presents to be had,
If I don’t fix this, the kids will be really mad,
Running out of time, the clock is ticking away,
I probably should have done this yesterday,
I wipe the grease on my pants and shirt,
My head is pounding, it really does hurt,
Dawn has broke, kids are waking up,
I need to move this old pickup truck,
I put it all together and give it a try,
The effort brings a tear to my eye,
All this time busting my ***,
Turns out I was just out of gas.
I hope everyone out there has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and happy holidays to those who do other things.......
Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough time to do it again??
....Will work for Rep points....
