Show Us Your Favorite Holiday Gifts!

While I HOPE...

Everybody got SPIFFY new sailing gear for the holiday gifts... My favorite was not specifically sailing related....

A combination of a bottle of Sinatra Jack Daniels, ridiculously overpriced audiophile headphones, and hand rolled cigars...

Hmmm.... :smile:

Got you beat.
My daughter came home on leave un-announced. Best present ever!!! All my kids back in one place, maybe for the last time...

I bought myself a new mandolin and a tricopter drone. I'm pretty happy with the mandolin. Still need some practice on both.

I'm afraid that I am fixing to have to get serious on the re-fit soon, I have an autoprop laying under the christmas tree, a Nexgen 3.5 in the garage and a new cold plate system that has shipped, (I'm going to build a spill over)

Now the wife is demanding I work on the house?

Nice!

I'm trying to figure out which one of those I would be more incompetent using... :rolleyes: :D Kudos on the mandolin... Always enjoy hearing a part written for one...

The Rose got a new stove as posted elsewhere. It cooks so lovely. I got a new pink terrycloth bathrobe that is so warm and soft. Only problem is, Mr. Grumpy, my cat has claimed it as a cat bed and he's laying on it even as I type this. Best cat bed ever according to grumpy.
