    Yea, I guess it is sorta obvious now, isn't it...lol...lol...lol... I don't have to be back at work until Dec. 5 and I am about to go crazy! I cut my hair real short (#3) the other day so I couldn't pull that out by the roots, it's too cold to go outside, there's nothing on TV and my son is out of school until Dec. 3 so he is going crazy from boredom also. The wife is lucky, she is at work! If you guys can bare with me for about 6 more days I would gratefully appreciate it! ;)

    Yeah, I gave up on that dream a couple of years ago but retirement is closing in so it's a fair trade off.

    Break open the Christmas gifts to pass the time. You son will love it, you'll have more fun playing with his toys and your wife will find it all very funny.

    I don't know what I am going to do...lol...lol... We are supposed to go out tomorrow nite and eat with some of our friends and some new friends that we met online. They live in Suffolk and are supposed to bring about 4 other couples with them, so that will help pass the time a little, I guess...lol...lol... We are going to a place called Wok and Roll, if you can believe that. It's not a bad place, but once you have ate at one Chinese buffet you have pretty much ate at them all. One day next week I am supposed to set up the Christmas tree, so that's another day gone, so please ignore me if I throw out the odd post here and there.

    Nice! I've only got about 2500 weeks till I'm 90 (i figure that's be a good time to retire from surfing), so that'd leave my heirs with $10mil to spare.
