I'll give this event one more shot...maybe it'll finally go smooth for me!

But hey, it's not about getting, it's all about giving, right?

In!!!

Work and family obligations make it tough to be on the boards as much as I'd like, but I always carve out the time to participate in this awesome initiative each year. So much fun and always great to see the generosity and creativity of fellow boardies!

I lucked out with some great stuff courtesy of @adamantium last year and hope everyone gets some amazing gifts this year!

Bumping back up to first page. If you love comics, this is a great way to share with others with that similar "comic-oid addiction".

Its cold out here in the snow...please let me in

I joined in Sept but made of for it by being very active with ever.... well lots of people 

I would like to request an exception to policy due to overwhelming attendance, purchasing, providing emotional support, and being a pillar of the community. I really want to send a present :)  Can I call a group vote? 

Don't let these guys go without. Snarf Snarf

After the ribbing you took from your first post, I think you could use a little CGC style holiday cheer.

Follow the instructions from the first post in this thread and send me a PM with the requested info. and you're in.

... and Thank You for your service, to both country and family. :foryou:

:banana::headbang::golfclap::applause:Yahoooooo thank thank thank you !!!!! wheeeeeeeeeeeeee  Crystal and I are going to start working on a Christmas bundle for someone right away ... thank you thank you:)

Doing our service....let me go copy something from and earlier conversation. because many find this hard to believe ..but truthfully without the support ,our faith, and a righteous cause we are just empty vassals

Tier 1 operators (sf,ranger,seal,etc) constantly train when not on mission. be it to liberate some hard headed missionary's in parts of Africa, they refuse to believe that those warlords don't want to hug it out with them until its too late . to stop the genocide of villages by the Bosnian, Croats, Serbs where small children and babies are head bashed against walls to conserve ammo, the sandbox and all the terrorists and radical muslums who want to kill you for the color of your skin and theological beliefs. Grenada, Panama, desert storm desert shield etc etc yada yada . they are always going somewhere, doing something and someone wants to kill them. when asked why they do it. many respond alike. "it has to be done, and as long and I am doing it. then that is one less brother, husband, son from back home being put in harms way."
We have a saying, You can last 3 weeks without food. 3 days without water. 3 minutes without air. and 3 seconds without hope. Your words and support nourish their spirits along with any food that nourishes their body. to show the power of just a few words.. I have read letters to some of the vets at the VA when I am there giving my blood . grown men will cry. I will look around at the men with missing body parts . arms, legs and yes *even a left nut *right knee* *wrists* *left hip* lol but everyone of them will sit a little taller. chests will swell with pride as they recall that they gave all to protect their family, friends and country from all enemies foreign and domestic . these mighty warriors fought on because of men and woman like you that gave them hope , they were doing the right thing and the love and support carried them past when anyone else would have given up.
So,I hope you understand that your support is just as important as their service. men in my unit don't suffer from PTSD .we did our job and came home and tonight when we lay our heads on our pillows and my ancestors and fallen brothers smile down upon me from heaven.I will rest easy ...knowing that with the support of men and woman like you / I did my duty

NOW lets go put some Christmas Comics together wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :)

Not sure if I will have time to jump in for Christmas holiday gift exchange this year, as I have two jobs working throughout Christmas season currently. But let’s see how it goes.
