    Greetings from San Juan Puerto Rico.

    Just thought I send a couple of snaps yall's way on this glorious Chrimas Morning. (I'm rubbing it in thats sunny and 80 degrees here) :smile2:

    I hope everyone found just what they asked for under their tree and in their stockings this morning.

    So, feel free to use this thread to now list your goodies and what new toys ol Santie Clause brought you. Any embarrassing Christmas Day memories are strongly encouraged :wink:

    I'll start, I got a 100.00 gift certificate to Bass Pro from my Dad. I'm going to buy a dual propane heater for the Cuz Craft so Gary and I dont freeze to death any more. :smile2:


    The views below are from my hotel room. The 3rd view is a gift to Harold for being a good brother and supplying an entire club with lead. Harold, Its a Macanudo, and I assure you its as good as it gets. :wink:

    I'm a little worried about Cuz. He goes to the beach and takes pictures of palm trees, water, and cigars. That aint quite right. No way thats right

    Enjoy! I've been flying the remote control dragon fly Eric got from Santa around the house all morning in between loading songs on MP3 players. Mom got me an air riveter, so I'm plotting my escape to the garage to work on the boat while they deal with the Christmas morning debris field in the living room:wink: This dragonfly is COOL by the way!

    Must be nice to be somewhere where it is warm. Actually, it isn't too bad here. The sun is shining, and I've been outside all morning with no jacket on. I did though, happen to obtain one Cabela's $100 gift card. I'm sure I can put it to good use!:wink:

    Well Santa was realy good to me this year. I must have been a good boy.:roll_eyes: I have been watching my boy play with his train table all morning and I did get to open a few gifts as well. I now have to take back any discouraging words about my lovely girlfriend, who I could not live without! She suprised me with a brand new lowrance lcx 38c hd with all of the goodies!:tounge_out::tounge_out::wink: I got a new surge elite from my sister and a new avet lx lefty from my mom. It was the best christmas ever. Now I just have to get through the winter looking at all of my new equipment that I cant use yet.:smile2: Merry Christmas everyone

    I thought the same thing Ryan, but these sunny high 40-50* days may change that out look, dogs already tired of chasing the casting plug down the hall :wink:

    Oh yea, and if it is going to "blow apart" I would rather try it on one of them big water PIGS that ya'll are proudly displaying, wouldn't feel so bad knowing a 60+ lb Blue destroyed it LOL

    That reel will handle about anything you're likely to hook into. I use them all time and haven't managed to destroy one yet:wink:

    Glad to hear everybody got a haul! My lip has stopped bleeding from the wire bristle I put through it (scuffing up the paint on the boat with a 4" grinder and wire wheel and it slung a bristle - not so bad in the arm, kind of smarts in the lip:wink:) and I've had enough of listening to the boys fight over the Wii game system that their grandma got them, so I'm back to the garage before anybody notices I was here and puts me to work assembling something or cleaning something up........

    Randy that looks like a pretty good reel to me.

    Branden sorry to hear about the lip, at first I thought you might have taken a helicopter blade to the mouth, but a piece of wire shrapnel sounds like no fun at all.

    John I can't wait to get out there and try out all of my new goodies, those kittens should be afraid......VERY AFRAID!:wink:

    As for Christmas I got an ipod, a gift certificate at cabelas, a tackle box and a couple of boxes of cookies, and a gift that the delivery guy hasnt brought yet. Dont have any idea what it is. But it is from my son so it could be anything.
