Just wanted to wish everyone here a very Merry Christmas, and a Wonderful Upcoming New Year! It has been a pleasure reading all the Posts this past year, and having New Members join our "On'Line" Family. I would again like to thank Frank and Nick for this Message Board! Cheers Everyone. Drink PLENTY of Egg Nog, and don't Over Stuff on the Fruitcake! laugh.gif

I can see it now a fruit cake sitting on a snow mound then all of a sudden a drum dump and colorful pieces of fruit speckling the snow.

Merry Christmas To ALL!!

It's been a very educational experience.
Thanks to Frank and Nick for their effort, as well to everyone else for making this board such an informative asset.

With that in mind, picture the following:

Everyone should buy someone they love a Machinegunbooks coffee mug or something. Great stocking stuffers! Not because it features my image (Arthur, still waiting of a good pick of you and your Tommy for the next product line;-) but because it helps pay the bills for Nick!

Safe holiday's, ya'll. Seat belts all way around, right? Right.

With best wishes to all the MGB Thompson family, it is truly an honor to be a part of this great forum and to know so many wonderful people because of it.

I hope you all get a chance to shoot with your family during the holiday and hope also that on Christmas eve you will take a moment to remember what Christmas is rally all about.

May the New Year bring you joy, hope and prosperity and may the fall pumpkin harvest be good.

Warmest regards, PK

PS I actually like a good fruit cake (the kind made with flour & nuts & stuff)

Great Christmas joke. Had to pass it on. Enjoy. God I'm so bad.

A BLONDE woman goes to the post office to buy stamps for her Christmas
cards. She says to the clerk, "May I have 50 Christmas stamps?" The
clerk says, "What denomination?" The woman says, "God help us. Has it
come to this? Give me 6 Catholic, 12 Presbyterian, 10 Lutheran and 22
Baptists.
