What? I can’t AFFORD the “12 days of Christmas”!

24 Dec

On the “First Day of Christmas”…

You better have won the lottery, bucko.

Times have sure changed since “the days of olde” when that tale got transcribed. They probably didn’t have “Twinkie Killing Unions”,  stifling inflation, rampant unemployment, idiot politicians, or increasing tax rates…

However, they did have an abundance of LOVE, Compassion and Kindness toward others less fortunate.

Today we ask you to spend a moment thinking about some small thing you can do to help someone less fortunate.

Drop a toy into that “Toys for Tots” box. It’s NOT too late.

Drop off a $20 bill at the “Homeless Kitchen” to help them prepare warm meals for “those without”…

Call your idiot brother in law and tell him that you’ll forget about the $1200 bucks he’s owed you since 1992, if he’ll go buy some toys and drop them off at a local church for distribution to needy kids…

We’re putting up the welding gear and stowing all the tools. We’re sending people home to their families, after long 6o hour weeks grinding and spraying and just generally making mayhem in the fab shops.

We’ve given out the “Christmas Bonuses (both fiscal and liquid)” and watched as the masses trample each other trying to get to the parking lots. And as they “jockey for position”, trying to get out into the Holiday fray… I’m just gonna sit here and ponder the season…

I’m gonna break out the calculator…

You’ll excuse me now… I gotta go to the local convenience store and buy some “Scratch-off” tickets…  🙂

Happy Holidays!
