Happy Holidays from the Chris- Craft Antique Boat Club

Post by Bill Basler » Thu Dec 24, 2009 11:20 pm

Dinner is finished, it's 36-degrees with a chance
of snow, the Chris-Crafts are tucked away, and Santa is on his way. Thank you all for your participation and support of the Chris- Craft Antique Boat Club.

It has been truly rewarding getting to know each
and every one of you.

Happy Holidays to all!

Bill, Michelle, Andrew, Alex, Camilla, Sam, Amelia and Lucas

Santa brought a great gift to me this Christmas, it's called Chris Smith, An Odyssey, A Collection of Short Stories, Compiled by Joy Smith. Thanks, Santa!!!

Al:

Mine is in the mail...I look forward to reading it.
I understand it is full of pictures we may not have seen before. Too bad we didn't learn of it sooner...It would have been a great stocking stuffer for a lot of girls and wives whose boys and husbands professed to have everything.

Wilson,

You should have asked Santa, he's got this high speed delivery system he's been using for years.

Al:

To tell the truth...I wrote the check but didn't get out of the house for a day and then missed the pick mail up.
I'm hoping Chris will autograph it and that may take time too...Anyhow it should be at the house when we get back from the coast....and it will make a good read then. I guess I could be a good guy and offer to do a book review for The Brass Bell....Second thought Bill Baldwin probably got a pre release copy and has already done that for us.
