So what are you all looking for under the tree?

Those are life long pursuits that require persistance and nurturing. Xmas is certainly one of those occasions that can provide a spiritual course correction in those pursuits.

But I'm talking about baubles and trinkets (metaphorically speaking).

Well Fred since we are wishing Big: How about, in addition to a permanent break on SB, an all expense paid summer house on Morris Island

Not to be greedy, but a fine single malt under the tree might bring out the child in me.

OK - then I would like Sean Ransom's suggestion that the forum guys get to be the house band at the Squire the night of the spring clave... to come true. Not to take anything away from the Stone Horse lobby of course

I think I have everything I need from the FF perspective, though it took years of persistence and nurturing to get here.

I just want to improve my Mad Skillz - I hope I always want that.

Jim just so you know living on Cape this time of year can be throughly depressing...

A return trip...

Getting back to the East Coast for either the summer peak or the fall blitzes and meeting up with the East Coast buddies I missed last fall... I'll have the Scotch and Cubanos... and lots of crease flies for the Blues..

I'll be picking up my new kayak right around Christmas, and we'll see whether my wife has gotten me anything fishing related (last year I got a new vise! ).

Unfortunately my family now refuse to get me any presents of a technical nature. That is electronic gadgets or fishing stuff. So I have to get them myself.
One thing I would like for next year is to hear the forum band at the Spring Clave.

Sean, mad skillz are tough, I can only muster a short duration explosive pulse then I forgetaboutit.

Since turning 60 I have been working reel hard on my "Old Crank" skillz. Takes a lot of persistance and nurturing. The Xmas season is certainly one of those periods that can provide a spiritual course correction in pursuit of "Old Crank" skillz. Bah Humbug.
