    a Jolly ho ho's 2AM...I tried

    Twas early Christmas eve and I was feeling alright
    Catching up on the threads from my wood families web site
    Quite a few members had faithfully logged on
    Most of us too tired to be playing Don Juan

    The tools were all cozy, warm & dry in the shop
    The silence softly broken as the ice cubes went plop plop
    Stretched out in the recliner the wife sound asleep
    With the dogs cuddled snugly peacefully at her feet

    The holiday season yes a time to relax
    Enjoying family and friends great food and kind acts
    Gifts have been made and packaged with care
    In hopes the receivers would notice our flair

    From trinkets and toys to complete bedroom sets
    Stuff for our kids our spouses and pets
    Given the choice most would do it non-stop
    For the smiles on their faces and our time in the shop

    Santa has help by way of elves and Reindeer
    We sweep after ourselves and fetch our own beer
    We stumble & cuss but mostly whistle and sing
    There's no stopping with family that's Family Woodworking

    Thanks for the sharing of knowledge, laughter and tears
    From the bottom of my heart I wish you the best of good cheers
    In closing I pray that may peace with you go
    Have a merry good season and a jolly ho ho

    I know coming into the shop this morning,
    there would be a warm wish waiting here.
    From a family member named Ken ,
    sipping on a cold beer.
    He sat up all night with work in his head,
    found the computer sat down and wrote inset,
    of widdling out a prize to be given as a gift.
    He fashioned a poem, which reached out to all
    "A Jolly Ho Ho " and then off to bed.

    Thanks Ken.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
