    Cool It's that time again!!

    I know it is a bit early for this but if I don't do it while I'm thinking of
    it it won't get done! I'm not saying I put things off but let me put it this
    way.... My wife has threatened to buy me a teeshirt that says.... "I
    always wanted to be a procrastinator but I never got around to it!".

    Anyway, from me and mine to the members of Gun Tips & Talk.....
    This is my own version of "Twas The Night Before Christmas" that I have
    taken (great) liberties with to wish all of you and yours a very Happy
    Holiday Season....

    'Twas the Night before Christmas', a poem...
    with apologies to Clement Clarke Moore......

    Christmas Eve on the Forum and all through the joint, not a person was
    talking, no one making a point.
    The range bags were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St
    Nicholas soon would be there.

    The newbies were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of AR's
    danced in their heads.
    Mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, had cleaned all the guns
    and it was time for a nap.

    When out in the yard there arose such a clatter,
    I jumped from my bunk to see what was the matter.
    Away to the safe I flew like a flash, grabbed my AR,
    and threw up the sash.

    The moon through the lens of my night goggles aglow,
    gave the brightness of mid-day to objects below.
    When, what to my searching eyes should appear, but a four wheel drive truck,
    pulled by eight White Tail deer.

    I saw a little old driver, as I threw off my slumber, and I searched the
    truck for a plate but couldn't make out the number!
    More rapid than spammers the truck and deer came,
    And he cussed, and he shouted, and called them by name!

    "Now Taurus now Ruger now Glock and Beretta! On KelTec on Smith on
    Colt and Rock Island!
    To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now stop fooling around
    and haul ash one and all!"

    As smoke from black powder when fired will fly, when it meets with the
    wind, up in to the sky,
    so up to the roof top those white tails did slide,
    With the truck full of Toys, and the old man inside.

    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
    the prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
    As I drew in my head, and was turning around, down the
    chimney fell Santa with a grunt and a moan.

    He was dressed all in camo, from his head to his foot,
    and his clothes were all dirty with deer crap and soot.
    A bundle of presents he had hung on his back,
    And he looked like a vendor, at a gun show in fact.

    His eyes-they were blood shot! His dimples were scary!
    His cheeks were like wattles, his nose like a cherry!
    His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow
    And the hair on his head was a flat top you know.

    A Christmas Cookie he held tight in his mouth, and the crumbs that he
    dropped were all over the house.
    He had a broad face and a big old round belly,
    that shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!

    He was chubby and plump, a right comical elf, And I laughed when I saw
    him, in spite of myself!
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, soon
    gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, and filled all the
    range bags, then turned with a jerk.
    He laid his finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod, up the chimney he

    He sprang to his truck, to his deer gave a whistle, and away they all flew
    like lead from a pistol. But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of

    This is not a Bakery. I do not sugar coat anything.

    It has been awhile since my last visit to this forum; although I may have been absent I have thought about you often.

    BangBang, that was a fantastic rendition of "The Night Before Christmas." It brought a big smile to my face along with a chuckle or two.

    I wish you and all here on the forum a "Very Happy New Year!"
