There was a funny cartoon on the local paper yesterday.
(Saturday is the big day for newspapers up here.)

It showed a boy on Santas lap looking at all these toys from China.
He had this look of worry on his face, and asked for a lump of coal instead. :D

Time. Just free time and good folks to spend it with. I'd hike a little bit, see some movies with the family, and just relax.

Someday I'll thru-hike...but for now I'd be happy with a little more free time.

While riding on a train goin' west,
I fell asleep for to take my rest.
I dreamed a dream that made me sad,
Concerning myself and the first few friends I had.

With half-damp eyes I stared to the room
Where my friends and I spent many an afternoon,
Where we together weathered many a storm,
Laughin' and singin' till the early hours of the morn.

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung,
Our words were told, our songs were sung,
Where we longed for nothin' and were quite satisfied
Talkin' and a-jokin' about the world outside.

With haunted hearts through the heat and cold,
We never thought we could ever get old.
We thought we could sit forever in fun
But our chances really was a million to one.

As easy it was to tell black from white,
It was all that easy to tell wrong from right.
And our choices were few and the thought never hit
That the one road we traveled would ever shatter and split.

How many a year has passed and gone,
And many a gamble has been lost and won,
And many a road taken by many a friend,
And each one I've never seen again.

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain,
That we could sit simply in that room again.
Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat,
I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that.

David and I are really excited about the Svea we're giving ourselves. It arrived and is all wrapped up, taunting us. Since we're going to Grandma's and Grandpa's house for Christmas, we're going to take along some Coleman fuel and a pan so we can fire up the stove in the driveway Christmas afternoon.

And that would get you on the trail right? Good. Wishing for a speedy payoff for Troll.

I'm with the folks that want 6 months of paid vacation . . . . . as I sit here in my office, working until 5pm on Christmas Eve.

I think just about anything material can be had by just about anyone who wants it bad enough and is not afraid of hard work. That being said, the things I wish the most for are not necessarily tangible or material - for our troops to return home, for our nation to come together rather than drive wedges between us, for more nights spent outdoors, and finally, for American culture to drop back a little from the protestant work ethic - more vacation, more time off, less emphasis on financial success and more emphasis on real quality of life. Rant over.

Merry Christmas, I hope everyone's wishes come true in 2008!

For me it'd be two million dollars, two square miles in Wyoming and a trained burro. I've got a dog, a rifle and a pick up and I can leave tonight!

Micky, I hope you get your wish.
