I just wish I could tell her
"Courtnee, Dada loves you"
Really do hope you get your Christmas wish Trib. You should at least give her a call.

On a lighter note, a little after Christmas poem:

The Day After Christmas
By Artman

Twas the day after Christmas
When all through the house
The kids had gone crazy
And Grandpa was soused.

The stockings were flung
On the seat of a chair
And wrapping paper strewn
Like nobody cared.

The floor was all covered
With pieces of toys
Busted and tossed there
By the girls and the boys.

My new tie, a santa,
His nose was a light,
Has a piezo tweeter
That screamed "Silent Night."

Ma in her nighty
Had just gone to bed
--Up until three,
She was tired as the dead.

So with ma upstairs sleeping
And grandpa passed out,
I was settling to watch football
--Even the kids weren't about!

I fired up the big screen,
Gave the channels a whirl,
Then jumped, when I heard
The cry of my girl.

Her dolly, she said,
Was broken quite badly.
She held the thing up
said, "Can you fix it, Daddy?"

I looked at the doll
She had clutched in her fist.
Its head was removed
And its leg a strange twist.

Its batteries
Must have long ago died,
The talking gizmo
Was probably fried.

I struggled and fussed
With that piece of s..t
Till the quarter was over!
I wanted to quit.

But there on the floor,
(Oh joy! What luck!)
lay the head of that doll
In my son's toy dump truck!

I grabbed the doll's head
From the back of the truck
And forced it back on
Till the darn thing was stuck.

Now where are some batteries?
I can't ask the wife.
(Not while she's sleeping,
If I value my life.)

The stockings! I thought,
There must be some there!
I grabbed for the pile
That was flung on the chair.

I opened one up
And down there I spied.
There were 'D' Cells and 'C' Cells,
And a nine volt besides!

I popped in two 'C' Cells
And closed up the back.
I switched on the switch
And gave it a whack!

The baby started crying,
To my daughter's delight!
I handed it back
And she ran from my sight.

But I heard her exclaim
As she scampered away,
"Thank you, Daddy!
You fixed it! Hooray!"

Now the games on the tele,
Got a cold can of brew.
Merry Christmas to all
And a Happy New Year too!
