Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Posted by Firelock76 on Monday, December 18, 2017 6:24 PM

Since I'm taking a road trip this weekend, I'm posting this as sort of a "Christmas Card" before I forget to do so!

It's a lovely video I found featuring the great maestro himself, Enrico Caruso, singing to us from another century.  Hey, what better place than "Classic Trains" for a classic voice?  There's even a little rail content, but you have to watch closely to see it.

My grandmother heard Caruso sing, and even though she lived to hear all the greats that came after him (she died in 1982) she said Caruso was the best!  She was right.

Best wishes everyone, I love you all.

Merry Christmas indeed, I hope you have good weather on your trip.

It's looking like a brown Christmas around here, my area has been enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures for the past several weeks, and nearly all the snow has melted.  The only upside is that our paved roads are dry and clear.

Wellllll, not the best arrangement of "Oh Holy Night" I've ever heard, but respect for fellow Marines won't let me say any more.

Not unless I want one of them chasing me around yelling "DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY!!!"

OOOH-RAH boys, your hearts are in the right place anyway!

Sorry...put this on the wrong thread..copied it over to the 'Christmas in the Club car onthe night train to Vermont'

Hey...it's Boxing Day in Canada, for the benefit of our American cousins...its a legal holiday and all the stores have massive "Boxing Day" specials and sales and it's a big day to make returns and such.

Miningman

Are the store managers sweeping up while the custodians relax?  Wink  I call it "the biggest un-shopping day of the year".  Big Smile
