View Full Version : Twas the Night Before Christmas WBF Style...

12-22-2005, 07:06 PM
From 12/24/02....

'Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the Forum,
All insults were banished
in the interest of decorum.

Republican, democrat,
liberal, and confused,
All were tolerated
instead of abused.

Then there rose a cry
from SWMBOs galore
"Get in here right now
and finish your chores."

"Get off that computer
and come here this minute,
Or you'll find your new boat shed
with only you in it."

"But Honey, Kory got a camera
and Norm got a doll.
Surely Cleek's gonna appear
with a shiny new awl."

"You know my little possumpoop,
one man even got a gaff rigged boat."
"That's nice dear,
too bad none of yours float."

"That guy on Long Island,
he got two in a week,
And his lovely bride
didn't let out a peep."

So good Forumite Friends,
with boats large and small,
off to your families
they're the most important of all.

Glad tidings to all from Cornwall to Perth
and may Peace and Joy long reign on this Earth.

Sad to think of those not with us at this season. Norm and Lynn Messinger come most immediately to mind. I hope Phyllis is doing well!

Happy Holidays, All!

Pointy Nosed One, lest we forget Das, Lisa S's beloved to name but two alongside Norm and his son.

Thanks Margo!

I'm gonna celebrate this season with the *happy* memories I have of those who have gone before us. Norm and others would expect nothing less.

"Deck us all with Boston Charlie...."

And our friend in the north, whose name escapes me, run down in his kayak by a senseless stinkpotter.

I raise my mug to all friends who have gone over the bar. Cheers to you all.

Cheers also, to Grandpa.

Hey Margo, you were responsible for my little pilgrimage to Edgecomb this morning. Mary really liked the jewelry you wore in Newport. :D
Next time I'm going by sea. They have a dock for people coming to the store by boat. smile.gif
And I was supporting one of WoodenBoat's advertisers.

Steven - do tell????? Compass Rose???

I ran into a gal at Strictly Sail St. Pete wearing the deck prism pendant. Quite exquisite, and already on my list....

12-24-2005, 03:59 PM
Well, it said Nautical Jewelry on her Christmas List so I picked up a Stropped Block Pendant:


If she likes something else more she can exchange it. We could go out for lunch and drive around Edgecomb and make an afternoon of it. smile.gif Super nice people.

Merry Christmas!


Now I have to keep her away from the computer 'til morning. :D
