Is that what you want, or did she really do it?  If she did, that's way COOL!  Merry Christmas!

I needed the socks.  At this point in our lives, I wasn't even expecting the socks, just hopeful for them, I do feel fortunate.

At some point I'll look into a parts bus, sooner or later I'll need parts for something, thats only a matter of time, actually at some point I'd even feel pretty lucky to have actual bus heat and a defroster, jamie just said parts bus helll,lol, she said she needs a bus so she can keep up with me, I told her that when she has worked long enough, it'll happen if it's meant to be lol.  At some point this next summer I'm thinking I'll start looking around for a small bulldozer and maybe a frontend loader/back hoe for the anti-KOA, that would come in handy making roads and sites and a general playtoy lol.

Our new fridge is supposed to be delivered today, not trying to upstage anyone! Roll Eyes We've been without one for over a week and we're tired of eating out!

Glad you got your present in time! I can't think of a better gift than a bus or at least parts for one!

Too bad you don't have a spare 01 Clifford, I could use a spare! Grin Put my name in the hat for the black jeep! Tongue

My family isn't exchanging gifts this year.  We decided to help out charities with the money we would have spent on gifts.

I got myself a few gifts: An Acer Netbook and a Silverleaf VMSpc.  I also bought myslef a rocket kit.  I would have bought myself the stuff regardless if it was Christmas or not.  I just happened to have the money now.

Christmas came early for us this year, when libby walked out of the hospital under her own power, it was christmas at that point and continues to be every day, dallas just because clifford might be putting my name into the hat that doesn't mean when it gets shaken and drawn it'll come out lol, but thats ok, I've already got a wonderful present and it came early. For something to do me and jamie made 25 Yule Logs and brought them to St Vinnies, ( a thrift store like Goodwill) and told them to give them out as needed, when we were in there yesterday, they were all gone, so I've already got my good feeling for the new year, I'm fine for a while lol.

Clifford, When you get to that point of moving let me know. I'll see if we can get away to help, I'm dead serious. After all you've done, it's the least we could do!

Hope you guys are staying warm, it's colder than a well diggers you know what here and snowing like crazy!

I got a 32 inch Pioneer Viera HD flat screen that my computer will drive.  AND, a Tosheba 18.4 inch nine plus pound Laptop(sorta) for the Blue Ray and DVD drive for the Flat Screen.  AND HD Dish Sat service with dual record so I never miss anything( I really hat to have that happen).  AND Vorizon computer service to stay on the forum and WWW when traveling.  AND  a Wi Fi connected printer  for the RV.  AND a new Thermo Quad Carburator (oops, slip of the tongue that).  And a new Weingard for local events.  AND a new hot water heater.  AND a rebuilt Dometic is on order.  Now most of this stuff was put on charge.  I figure that if I croak it will be a heck of a joke on those blood sucking credit guys.

Merry Christmass to all.

Clifford: I know the sewing machine situation My wife has a top end Babylock.....did some fantastic embroidey for Xmas for kids...She does all upholstery sewing for bus..Any other info on the prevost will greatly be appreciated...haven"t even seen it yet but can see the value in $from the picture. I need a project and have the time,and will to make it come true..Judy saw this or she would not have made it come true..I had looked at it and decided to pass...She decided it would be a good Christmas for me...the work should be easier this time since have already done a XL,maybe I won't make the same mistakes during this conversion....redoes end up costing twice!...Already have everything for slides (the ones I built work great to my standards) and a lot of the missing parts...Will be depending on everyone for their input......NEW YEARS resolution finish the bus!
