well here it is Christmas day
and i just finished my breakfast
thanks to some gifts that arrived

as i had been buying things on the net
for myself and some work projects
i was getting many ups notices online
two of them almost got lost
but not quite

the first was from my LJ buddy Tom (ND2ELK)
and was a total surprise

as i had recently received a frying pan
for my eggs from LJ buddy Joe Lyddon

it seemed proper to have a deer sausage
and egg breakfast this morning

well yesterday
another package arrived
from my LJ buddy Kent Shepherd
one of his world famous bubinga and maple
turned mallets

which i quickly realized
was really an egg beater
in disguise

well i proceeded to make breakfast
and enjoyed all these wonderful
as i considered how blessed i am
to have so many wonderful friends here

beginner or master
hobbyist or pro

for me more than the projects
it’s the kind and caring hearts
of LJ’s that touch me

David, if anyone can find a new use for a tool it is you. :) I wish you and yours have the Merriest of Christmases and in the coming New Year I hope that you have a happy and prosperous New Year and many more to come. I know that you will be blessed because you have been a blessing to so many people on Lumberjocks including myself. :)

To read your blogs is for me always a moment I look forward to do, because I know they are full of heart, spiced with humor and knolage.
Since I read your the first time here, I felt you had a gift that I have seen more and more clear each time:
you have a wonderful posittive spirit, and you have the ability to share your joy and to be happy for the others, I know that this is not just a gift, but a choise, and I admire you for that.
Thank you for beeing who you are!

And all I had was a bowl of cereal! ( I’m not very domesticated, I prefer food that’s fast, easy and doesn’t make a mess!)
You received some great gifts. Enjoy the rest of the day, Merry Christmas!
