    the best? My girlfriend last year gave me a new pair of gloves and a nice scarf.

    why was it the best? Cause she was wearing them, AND NOTHING ELSE when she gave em to me! WOO-HOO!


    the worst? WEll, I was standing watch on Tower #9 on Guam in '91, Midnight, on Christmas Morning/Night and it started to rain so hard that all the alarm sensors went off, and we had to patroll the peremiter all night long instead of the usual 4 hour shifts. Then the didn't even send us any hot food for Christmass chow, cause the dang cooks forgot about us! LOL Guess that was God's present to me for giving him so much CRAP all the time

    Sounds like me...


    I wrapped myself in a big red bow wearing Roger's Name Ring.

    Now I can say he had fun getting to the ring


    Met Roger Christmas Eve.....It would have been 27 years this year...

    I still have to think on what is my worse......

    The worst and the best

    WORST

    Was December 1967, Charlie send floating down the Song Thu Bon River, Christmas wreaths that had leaflets attached to them.

    The leaflets offered a bounty for Marines in India
    Company and had some of us listed with a certain price tag attached for our names."

    For officers it was about a hundred dollars bounty for us grunts only $2.00






    The BEST


    Years ago, when we could finally afford presents for my daughter's and all five awoke to find Barbie dolls for each of them under the Christmas tree.

    - Geez, wasn't it you Grunts doing them the most damage?

    The best, 7th grade - the folks bought me a huge plank of furniture quality of walnut lumber. I made some nice stuff in woodshop for them.

    The worst? Don't know yet, hopefully I'll have another 25-35 more Christmases to find out!

    HAVING THOUGHT ABOUT THIS ALL DAY LONG MY ANSWERS ARE:

    THE BEST: It would be this computer I am on that we got last Christmas, because it brought me to all of you, my Marine friends.

    THE WORST: It would be a gift from my mother-in-law many years ago. She gave me a disgusting CHIA PET. Now, what kind of mother-in-law would do this to her daughter-in-law?

    LOL----------------LOL-------------------LOL------------
