You Got Me What?
Well well well! Here is a present all wrapped up and ready for opening. What could it be? I don't recall having anything like this size and shape on my Christmas wish list or in my letter to Santa. I am getting more forgetful as the years rush along but I am certain I didn't ask for anything this big or odd shaped. Actually I recall my items could all fit into the dainty little stocking hanging on the mantle. Hmmm...
Oh now I recall...it was Mr. C who had this wish. Of course it is all for ME! Looks like a new project is in our future. Let's take a closer look...
Oh Boy! An engine and transmission and radiator and spare parts. These must be part of the other spare parts that have been accumulating the past couple of weeks. We have a rear end, some sample test wheels, a set of disc brakes, a hydro boost for power brakes and other assorted items that are dangerous looking.
Mr. C has been gathering data and doing his engineering drawings too. This will be quite the project for him. All of his car buddies are anxiously awaiting the excitement to come.
This is all I shall share at this point. Merry Christmas to me.
Our weather has been very WINTER! Tons of rain and some snow. Cold, dreary, damp and all around miserable. Thank goodness for our wonderful wood burning fireplaces...one in the Great Room and one in the Master Bedroom. We were without telephone service for about three days. We were without power all day Christmas Eve. That really put some things on hold. How grateful I am for power and warmth. When we have no power we also have no well water so it is really like primitive camping...which I am too old to enjoy. Actually I really never liked camping even as a child or young adult.
Now that Christmas is over it is time to turn towards the new year...2013. May we all continue to enjoy our blogging and friendships all over the world. May everyone have Peace and Joy through all of 2013...

Oh now that looks like a project! I have a new compressor on my living room floor...the DH unwrapped, proceeded to attach various parts and fill with oil on the spot! You sound more patient than me LOL Warmest wishes..ReplyDelete
OK, so what is it!! If that was my project I would have to declare that I was in way over my head!!!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!
From the looks of the package, I thought you were getting a whale. Ha! That's a whole lot of scary spare part stuff going on. I would say Mr. C is gonna be busy for a very long time. I hope he doesn't need you to hand him parts and pieces. Much better for you to spend time in your studio blissfully creating to start the new year off right. Take care, TammyReplyDelete
That will teach you for hanging a big stocking out! Ha. And here I thought it was a sled full of art supplies. I absolutely love this post Sherry!!ReplyDelete
