Having no kids (that I have been made aware of) it feels pretty damn good!

Like I've said in a few PM's...Christmas morning growing up was just the best day of the year. Yes, because of the neat presents but also because of the family and warmth and love felt.

I just can't imagine not having Santa come to see any little boy or girl.

So, as ornery as I can be at times, maybe this is a little redemption.

Some more BIG points just came in. I'm not mentioning names but wanted to just say "thanks" again.

Re: Hey, I Got A Question...


Just donated all my points. Should be enough to get $120 in gift cards. Was looking forward to being the first to bet the Bosch laser measuring tool, but when I saw this I figured what the hell.

I hesitated at first because I didn't think we had enough time to get it organized and executed, but was super impressed with Robie and his determination to see this happen. Happy shopping with 11,952 more points.

I'm not pointless, I'm just at ground zero.

Happy shopping and Merry Christmas!

Re: Hey, I Got A Question...


Still looking for toy ideas. I have to be away soon for 4-5 hours driving and would like to get this nailed down...one way or the other by Sunday afternoon.

I realize the timing isn't everything but it's like telling a kid they can go trick or treating the night after everyone else has finished.

Toy ideas...anyone?

Re: Hey, I Got A Question...


I am picking up my niece at BWI. She's a grade school psychologist with the Illinois school system. She should have some toy ideas.

I always seemed to get more enjoyment out of the big boxes than I did the toys....tunnels, forts, etc.

Robie, I only have girls. But I think we should get toys with a purpose. A small art set. Legos (girls and boys). My girls loved playing with my Legos. Science toys (ones that make exploring their world fun).

I like the Lego and art set idea, anything that could potentially give rise to creativity!

Can someone set up that Paypal contribution like was done for the injured?? Don't have a clue or else I would. Some of us don't have many points, but can also do cash.
