    @HarrisonK I doff my virtual hat to you my friend.
    YOU are the epitome of the true christmas spirit.

    Which echoes @shelley262 , sentiments, i hope.

    @ianpspurs, your vicar speaks much sense, So many seem to sadly worship at the alter of consumerism these days. where it's the 'Cost' of everything that gives us value as people, rather then the quality of the person.

    @Emma_369...snap.great news for you today on this day of all days..CONGRATULATIONS..can 'feel' the pleasure in your words..enjoy the day..
    (love the princess part too )

    @Debandez...hahaha....If anyone can..You can..
    Merry xmas from our family to yours.
    hope you and dez (?) have a marvelous day..( Thank you for all your hard work behind the scenes.)

    I'd also like to add MY gratitude as well to the posts of @DJC3
    A MASSIVE thank you to all on here.

    You lot have kept me sane, Showed my Light & love was still ahead of me, and the darkness wasn't going to last forever

    SO...To ALL those who made me laugh or smile..( yep, i'm especially looking at you @SaskiaKC, @ianpspurs, @neithskye, @Chronicle_Cat)
    Posted pics or beautiful quotes, ( (@Bubbsie @karen8967) among many others )
    OR generally just helped and supported me & other members who were having a hard day, by their offers of good advice or by simply sharing of a love or hug.

    I Salute You.
    May your God bless you, and always look over you.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL

    As for my own personal celebration, here's my Baby,
    (I share most things, with my wendy..But THIS...THIS is ALL MINE..Mwhaaah)
    Back on the road late last night, after some guttersnipes toppled here over and left here on her side last week, breaking a few bits.

    [​IMG]


    And as if today couldn't get any better, it began with a 6.5 on the Richter scale,
    which would normally have wobbled me, but i'm doing battle with a cunning, sneaky
    and often unseen enemy, so it's not TOO bad..

    However my JOY meter MAY have broken once i clocked the scales this A.M.....:woot:

    HIT target.. BANG ON Christmas day...yaahhhooo...:D
    ( it's in foreign..so in old money its 13.8 stone, or in what i originally aimed for a sub 200lbs by end december,,,
    i weighed it a New world and Middleweight record (for me ;) ) of 194.0 lbs.)

    [​IMG]

    So the song for today, while NOT a festive Yuletide fare , Does reflect my mood..and hopefully puts a spring in someone else's day...:headphone:

    I woke this morning to a wondrous Christmas present -- a bright sunny day and a full moon shining in the sky. I don't think I've ever seen a full moon before at 8 o'clock in the morning. When I'd woken for the first time, around 5, I didn't seen moonlight patches on the floor so I thought I might have missed it. Then when I woke again at 8 and got up, there the moon was, in the blue sunny sky. Thanks be to God for a cool Christmas present!

    Then I gave the Kittencat one of her favorite things, a full all-over massage. She never makes a lot of biscuits but when she makes a couple I know she is really happy and content.

    FBG this morning an even 7, not surprising after yesterday's pumpkin pie. I'm watching a hilarious steeplechasing musical from 1939. "Oh, what a horse was Charley, 'til he got a charley horse."

    Amen.

    Thank you for posting that.

    @HarrisonK thank you for your good loving work with your neighbors. It's good to read about, especially at Christmastime.

    @trick60 I enjoyed reading about the bicycle. You reminded me of the Christmas when I got my first bike. It and my sister's were put together sometime by our dad and hidden overnight in the nextdoor neighbors' basement. Later that morning we went out for a ride and I remember there were so many other kids in the neighborhood out, all with shiny new bikes. Red for the boys, mostly blue for the girls was the color scheme in those days, except one girl had a turquoise bike with chrome fenders and one had a fuchsia-and-white Schwinn.

    @jjraak that lovely Suzuki brings back other memories, of a Suzuki called Suzie, from my wild and misspent college days. :D

    It's so nice to read about what all of you are doing this Christmas Day. Great to hang out with friends on the Internet this morning!

    Merry Christmas to you all!

    Reporting in with an update after Phase Two of today's meter-reading event. Down 3 decimal points to 6.7 after a marathon breakfast of French toast with butter and sugar-free syrup, coffee with cream. In this sport, as in eventing, the lower the score the better, even though in meter-reading the points are not penalty points. And today is only the first day of this 12-day event.

    I don't know of any horses named Lancet, but here is a famous blood horse appropriately named Needles:

    hahahaYep,.... i think at this time of year the testing does become an 'Event'.
    easy to see your love of horses in your posts..like.

    And strangely enough on the bike front, mine is called 'Suzi.' but it's really SuziB.....( My dads initial.)

    Nice to hear about your biking days, i know some don't like, but i honestly know of few others
    means of transport that offer such a way of travelling where you truly 'engage' with the elements and your surroundings.

    I find the car to very boring 'Contained/Sanitised' method of getting around...
    But i respect the many who want that in a journey

    But A trip to work in the car..is a trip to work..
    But on the Bike......omg, it can be exhilarating, AND give me the biggest smile of the day.
    glad you shared some of those moments yourself..

    @Charis1213 Amen. Thank you for posting that lovely prayer.

    @jjraak It's been nearly half a century but IIRC this is pretty close to Suzie:

    I also remember a Triumph from the same period, @JohnEGreen .

    There comes a point on Christmas Day when you start to look forward to the hangover on Boxing Day morning.
    Some relatives turned up 25 minutes late for lunch ( we had expected them an hour earlier).
    I was expecting a tale of adventure and misfortune: a breakdown, a blocked road perhaps.
    Then they said they were about to leave the pub when some friends turned up so they stayed for another drink.
    I had to go into the utility room and count to ten.
    I’m going to the pub next year.
    Now relaxed with a large glass of red (finished my driving duties for the day).
    On a positive note my BGs have been below 8 all day which is a minor miracle given how mad I was (and I had some trifle!)

    You're doing well, @rhubarb73 , I'd've had to count to 100 and then would have still been steaming coming out of the utility room.

    It's been lovely sharing the day with only the KittenCat, although she was probably counting to 10 this morning while I was trying to wake up, stab my finger, and find my slipper socks before getting her breakfast.

    Do any of y'all know what I did wrong with my garlic butter? I followed the recipe I found online but it never got to tasting like garlic butter. I melted butter, added garlic powder, and salt "to taste" but the last fingertipful I sampled took my esophagus by surprise and still didn't taste right.

    Oh, well, the chili is good by itself and I certainly didn't need the garlic bread. But I'd like to know what I did wrong (and Mama was such a good cook ... )

    You have actually tested brave you are.

    I have been relaxing with a rusty nail (Drambue and whiskey) and a Havana cigar my grandson bought me for Christmas.:)
