    First things first... Merry Christmas to All!!!!
    This is the first year in the last 8 that the Mrs. & I are able to have both of our sons and family together with us at the same time for Christmas.

    They both live in the wonderful state of WA. :rolleyes: and made the trek down here to desert land of AZ.
    So, we're thankful for that..... :)

    Getting "a Grip"
    You might have seen these the other day as they lay on a vinyl/leather back drop before Bob ( @Gripwright ) shipped them.
    Well the sons haven't seen any of these lead throwers yet so I thought I would dress them up for dinner and show them with their fancy shoes on.
    First the group picture (common for holiday gatherings) ... followed by the individuals.

    I hope your holidays are special, in a special kind of way as well.

    Merry Christmas to you. I’m old and don’t need any ‘stuff’. Getting the family together is my favorite gift every year. Enjoy your time together.

    (oh, and beautiful grips!!)

    And a very Merry Christmas to you! It's all about family to me, too. We still share Christmas time with my mother (87 y.o.), siblings and their kids/grandkids. Our kids and granddaughter are coming up later this evening for our gathering. A few weeks before Christmas we got the news that another grand child is on the way!

    You're right about the background in my pics...cheesy vinyl ****Bob hangs head in shame****. I need a new one. I'm in the process of building my first "river" coffee table from two slabs of live-edge curly maple, river rocks and tinted resin. I might have to mix up a little extra.

    Nice grips!
    Yep mad rush to throw together a quick gathering for Christmas this year! Got back from a Disney vacation late Saturday and all plans made before we left went out the window while we were gone! I will not let the grandkids miss Christmas, so a mad rush to put up tree, decorations, dinner and all done in one day!
    I’m pooped today but it was great for the family! Have to take care of the little ones!
    Merry Christmas to all and have a safe New Years
