Been cold here, hammertoes, but it's a dry cold.
Had the GS out most everyday, tho. Expecting 75° for Christmas so more top down cruising.
I hope everyone is ready for, and expecting, a Merry Christmas.

H1 at least you weren't alone in last minute shopping............

the basers made me go shopping for the gift exchange with the GS'ers...... took longer in the check out line than it took to shop................

aren't you dreaming of a white Christmas there...................

rumor has it, this is what is heading down to AZ...............



don't feel too bad.................... this headed to the hovel............



on another note, for those who may NOT be feeling like celebrating the Christmas holiday, baser camp doctor is prescribing these..........



and to end the suspense, and to give the GS'ers a head start on the gift exchange............ this is what the basers got for all of the GS'ers here...........



finally, the baser girls made some candy arrangements for all of the patrons.................
pretty cool and unique way of looking at M & M's............

better the snow is there than here................

cold, but the foot of snow we had is almost gone now............

supposed to get real cold here starting tomorrow night...........
below 0 for lows, just in double digits for highs.............

all that is left for me is to get a few cards to "hand deliver" to family members I will see today and tomorrow...............

in the spirit of Christmas, I want to wish all of the patron's here a
MERRY CHRISTMAS............. especially to those friends I have met and shared great times with............. and those whom I haven't yet met, but also are friends in their own special and unique way.....



may you all have a safe and joyous holiday season.....................

Merry Christmas everyone. I assume some of you are celebrating Christmas Eve maybe some Christmas day with family and friends..


I was never around here when Hameister was, but you can tell by his words he was a GOOD MAN, and went through many of the same hopes and memories a lot of us do...Easy to relate to .....Hope you will Raise One to him this Christmas and New Years Season I'm sure you will.


"Soooooo true!
Last night, at a Christmas Eve party at a relative's house, as the children were running around, and the young people in their 30s were talking about their jobs, I sat comfortably sipping my EggNog.

I just couldn't help but think of memories, and thinking the same thing,....pretty soon, that's all that will be left.
It's a mixture of sad, yet thankful, at the same time."

Onward and upward my friends.......... Merry Christmas to all............

They also asked him if the people were very friendly? He said yes, a couple stadiums didn't have any holes in the fence but he found Flag poles at some and he would climb up there and have a great view. He also said the folks were so friendly that before each game started they would all stand up and say......."Jose Can You See" ...he thought that was very nice ...

Well, hamsters, another Christmas is just about to close. With our namesake in mind, I offer this toast, a "hammerism" if you will, to you, the faithful hamsters:

Here’s to those who’ve seen us at our best and seen us at our worst and can’t tell the difference.

Carry on, hammers, and finish the Christmas season with gusto!!!

can't say I have ever seen a difference in any of the regular patrons I know....................

really want to say "Thank you" to the Husker boy who mentioned 6" of freshly fallen snow..................

we were fortunate enough to get about 8" yesterday..............
and then another 3 - 4" overnight and this morning..............

this is what it looked like here, prior to me shoveling the snow so I could take Ms. 427 to see her side of the family this evening......................
