    It's entirely possible that we will only come back to pick up our 69 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser...:D

    It does take a degree of self reliance to live in a second world country, of that there can be no doubt.

    We are looking forward to it.

    I have no idea. I leave for work at 5am and get home at 7pm, eat shower and go to bed. My wife bought all the presents and has them wrapped and under the tree. I will see what I bought for everyone when they open their presents on Christmas. It will be a surprise for me also. I am going to upgrade my wife's cell phone for christmas other than that the 2 of us are not exchanging gifts we just bought for the rest of the extended family. We already have to much stuff and just buy stuff if we want it so have no real wants or needs.

    Your wife goes nuts the day before Christmas? My wife looked over at me last night and gave me the I know I'm being a bitch look. She then got up and made a sandwich. It could have been her I need a sandwich look. Now I don't know.

    Finally got a decent stand up air compressor. Been needing one for awhile.

    I gave an assortment of things, tools, toys, electric skillet ..

    I gave my compressor and all my air tools to my dad before I moved to Australia, and he gave them to a friend of mine, since he never used them. If I'm lucky, my friend still has two compressors and an extra set of tools, and won't mind returning the favor some day. Heck, I'm willing to take his old compressor. I've also got a nice rollaway toolbox and tons of tools still sitting in my dad's garage in SoCal. One of these days...
