My favorite is a signed picture of the Cubs celebrating their World Series win. It's pretty awesome.

I also found out that we bought my nephew a $60 gizmo that lets him watch TV on his XBox One. All so he doesn't have to get out of his bed to watch TV after playing video games (he had to press a button on something manually before this.) So $60 so he can be even a tiny bit more lazy. Sigh.

I got a Dustbuster and a gift card from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

It's funny...I was thinking about the gifts I got. Nothing fancy, but just what I needed. I am pretty content that I have everything I'd want and was just happy that my kids were with me.

And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

I got a refurb HP computer....with the highly advanced Win 7 program, so screw win 10........AND wife found the Office 2003 disc with install code......

so now I have an email handler again....and dropped someone off my email list and will never open a email from her again....poison pill contained.....



Wife even found a refurb Sammy Rugby phone, but somehow the account is screwed up and we there at the ATT store to get the stupid sim card changed over....not identical cards for some stupid reason....I have an old Rugby that is tending to drop outs and distorted sound a LOT.....and so they balked at doing it, because of some name change on the account....stupid shit, and so I got my old phone back, and the damn thing is dead as a fish.....

so back to ATT store to find out what the botched up......wife off on an open end errand over at her sister's because the aunt is in troubles now, and needs a nursing home.....I dunno, I get that bad off, time for a sleep needle....

A new Porter Cable buffer, the kind that won't burn the paint because it has a counter weighted spindle that creates a random pattern, mimicking what you do with your hand.

Polyurethane bushings for my '96.

A new front splitter.

Bought myself the complete Banski suspension pieces, including the shock parts, a Camber brace, a harness brace to tie the hoop together, Del-alum bushings for the front A-arms, the x-brace like went on the convertible

AND an LT4 Knock sensor !

3 pair of jeans !

All are going on this: (except for the jeans)

They are great. You might want to order a pad kit for it from one of the many car care websites. Is yours the 6" or 5" buffer? Make sure you get the right kit. Can't beat it for certain jobs. Last time I used it, I totally renewed our gas fireplace glass with Flitz and the Porter Cable.

Any Christmas pics of the family Mike?
I think most of us just buy what we need when we need it anyway.......I do. BUT, you can never have too many socks and underwear!

Wife got me a Samsung Chromebook. I've been wanting something smaller than the HP laptop I've been using for the last five years.

I got her the pasta maker attachment for her Kitchen Aid mixer. Damn things are expensive, but Kohl's had them on sale.
