Officially on "Christmas Vacation" as of this afternoon, so my CPU will be limited.

So I thought I'd take the opportunity to say Merry Christmas to you, and to all a New Ventana.... or something like that.


OLE!

P.S. Yup, my house, 9,100 lights. 4 Days to put it up 3 to tear down, about an extra $50 tacked on the electricity bill. My 3 year old son's face when he first saw it made it worth it.

Merry Christmas to all from Georgia as well! I'd post a picture of my house at night, except photos of complete darkness are kind of boring! I used to do the Christmas lighting, but as my kids got older, they didn't get much out of it and consequently I lost the desire to go through the routine of putting them up and tearing them down. Yours looks great though.

The goods news is I get to stay home this year with family visiting. The bad news is I get to stay home with family visiting! Actually it should be fun. I'm going to take my older brother out on a local trail hopefully. Love it if I could get him hooked as it would give us some excuse to get together more often.

Enjoy your loved ones (I'm not talking about your bikes!) they are precious.

That's amazing, you don't live near the Griswold's do you ? :D I hope everyone has a nice Christmas and would like to thank everyone for the many helpful tips and component suggestions that help make mountain biking even "more fun" and I'll be asking for alot more advice in the future I'm sure ! It would be fun to meet and ride with some of you someday (even Foshizzle on his bling SS) ! :D TIG.

Are all recently "grandma'd or grandpa'd" they are quite enthusiastic. Across the street has 4000 lights on his yard. Next door to the pictures left has 3000 (That I put up for her and we have plans for a major, major expansion next year!) and the neighbor to my right has over 3000 as well.

My kids are the "next generation" of babies on the block and we've brought some excitement to the neighbourhood!

Glad to hear from yea, I know the new career has kept you busy. I'll email soon.

-Feliz Navidad Fellow OLE! freak.

-Aaron

P.S. Me, Steve and Sherwood went out on a night ride two weeks ago, dead silence no one talking, and I blurt out... Turtlehead suspension! We didn't stop laughing for blocks!

Feliz Navidad from old Alabam!
Wishing each of you a very merry Christmas! Here's hoping that we all not forget the reason for the season.
Didn't count the lights, but there are a few.

Good to hear from you. Glad the restaraunt is doing well. How did the aluminum top work out on the bar, or did you go with something differant?
A toast to your success, Grand Mariner and coffee?
