A Christmas Poem

: A Christmas Poem TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, HE LIVED ALL ALONE, IN A ONE BEDROOM HOUSE MADE OF PLASTER AND STONE. I HAD COME DOWN THE CHIMNEY WITH PRESENTS TO GIVE, AND TO SEE JUST WHO IN THIS HOME DID LIVE. I LOOKED ALL ABOUT, A STRANGE SIGHT I DID SEE, NO TINSEL, NO PRESENTS, NOT EVEN A TREE. NO STOCKING BY MANTLE, JUST BOOTS FILLED WITH SAND, ON THE WALL HUNG PICTURES OF FAR DISTANT LANDS. WITH MEDALS AND BADGES, AWARDS OF ALL KINDS, A SOBER THOUGHT CAME THROUGH MY MIND. FOR THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT, IT WAS DARK AND DREARY, I FOUND THE HOME OF A SOLDIER, ONCE I COULD SEE CLEARLY. THE SOLDIER LAY SLEEPING, SILENT, ALONE, CURLED UP ON THE FLOOR IN THIS ONE BEDROOM HOME. THE FACE WAS SO GENTLE, THE ROOM IN SUCH DISORDER, NOT HOW I PICTURED A UNITED STATES SOLDIER. WAS THIS THE HERO OF WHOM I'D JUST READ? CURLED UP ON A PONCHO, THE FLOOR FOR A BED? I REALIZED THE FAMILIES THAT I SAW THIS NIGHT, OWED THEIR LIVES TO THESE SOLDIERS WHO WERE WILLING TO FIGHT. SOON ROUND THE WORLD, THE CHILDREN WOULD PLAY, AND GROWNUPS WOULD CELEBRATE A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS DAY. THEY ALL ENJOYED FREEDOM EACH MONTH OF THE YEAR, BECAUSE OF THE SOLDIERS, LIKE THE ONE LYING HERE. I COULDN'T HELP WONDER HOW MANY LAY ALONE, ON A COLD CHRISTMAS EVE IN A LAND FAR FROM HOME. THE VERY THOUGHT BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYE, I DROPPED TO MY KNEES AND STARTED TO CRY. THE SOLDIER AWAKENED AND I HEARD A ROUGH VOICE, "SANTA DON'T CRY, THIS LIFE IS MY CHOICE; I FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, I DON'T ASK FOR MORE, MY LIFE IS MY GOD, MY COUNTRY, MY CORPS." THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER AND DRIFTED TO SLEEP, I COULDN'T CONTROL IT, I CONTINUED TO WEEP. I KEPT WATCH FOR HOURS, SO SILENT AND STILL AND WE BOTH SHIVERED FROM THE COLD NIGHT'S CHILL. I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE ON THAT COLD, DARK, NIGHT, THIS GUARDIAN OF HONOR SO WILLING TO FIGHT. THEN THE SOLDIER ROLLED OVER, WITH A VOICE SOFT AND PURE, WHISPERED, "CARRY ON SANTA, IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY, ALL IS SECURE." ONE LOOK AT MY WATCH, AND I KNEW HE WAS RIGHT. "MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT."

RE: Why did the motorists cross the road?

I still have a full book of S&H green stamps. My wife never cashed them in. That was about 1954 when we were first married and didn't have a lot of money and she was going to get some thing we needed. She can't even remember what she was saving for.

RE: Hearing aids

I have been wearing hearing aids for nearly 40 years. This last pair is remote control. I carry the remote in my pocket. But they are pretty neat. If when in a crowd, things get a little noisy I just turn on the remote turn them down a little. I guess in the 40 years I have had about 5 sets. first set was only $600. They were Bell Tone. PHONAK is the brand of these new ones. The last 2 sets have 2 microphones on each aid. They tell me that's what i need, as my hearing is getting worse all the time. Yes, medicare will pay some on hearing aids now, but they are so small I would lose them in my ear canal.

I think most of the Americans have just lost their sense of humor.

Quit RVing

Well folks it sure has been great reading the posts on here plus staying at the RV parks and chatting with some really nice people. But I turn 86 next month and the ole eyesight is fading, I'm just not a quick with my actions driving any more. Plus it's getting very hard getting up the steps into the MH. We just thought it's time to get rid of the MH and quit traveling. We gave our son the MH and the MH carport is very empty. I really miss jumping in it and heading out to just where ever we wanted too go. Y'all drive carefully and keep safe and remember it's not where you are going, it's enjoying the trip getting there.

RE: Dolly towing

I have towed a 2002 jeep Wrangler (4 wheel drive) 4 down for many miles. Put the transfer case in neutral and the transmission in 2nd. Leave the key off just before the push button to get the key out. That leaves the steering wheel unlocked. Never had a bit of trouble. Plus it doesn't put any miles on it that way. The Jeep only has 30,000 on it and I bought it new in 2002.

Step down in Class C

I have been checking around. Do they make a Class C with out the step down to the drivers & passenger seat from the main coach? Also one that doesn't have the bunk bed over the cab, I seen one along time ago that had an entertainment center up there instead of the bed. I can't remember what make it was and haven't seen one since. I'm thinking about down sizing if I can find one. Thanks

RE: "driving" in the left lane. YES it's illegal.

Yea, in Texas most roads have signs telling you to keep right except when passing. I really don't think it is enforced just real tight.
