Last year we saw over 14,000 children. We dress in red all year, and since my wife is also a ventriloquist, we do things with kids all year. Never dreamed that retirement could be so much fun!"

So cool!!!

Be sure to invite him to join us!!

I think that was the earliest I have ever seen a Christmas commercial, and it is just awesome!!!!
I thought I was delirious! I got out of the shower last night and the TV was on in the bedroom. I could have sworn I heard Bing singing It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. I chalked it up to wishful thinking, though. Thanks for clearing that up!

gotta go to school in the evening....the teacher wants to tell us all the things that will be done in the next few months, the official speaker for the parents of this class will be voted ( i was voted last year) and we are paying 20 euros for crafting supplies, copies and all that stuff.....I am sure she will let us know which fuller is the one best suited for starters......over here at first the kiddos learn for write with a pencil....later sometime in second grade when they are good writers, they start using their fullers to write.....all the kids are mighty exited about that....so I think she will tell us, which ones are good and so on!!!

I spent my entire Friday working on it and never got it working. My son was helping me with it as well. On Saturday after a few hours we got it working. Took me most of the day yesterday to edit, tweak the audio on it, and add music. Phew! All that work and it's a 5 minute video! I know those who are familiar with video making know the time it takes to even make a video that short.

I don't have time to hang around but wanted to stop by and say hi and hope you all have a Merry Day!

Someone please send some cool air this way! All week will be 99-100 degrees. Christmasstar, I know it's your birthday but do you mind getting your big fan out and send that cool air this way? Have a Happy Birthday!
That sounds like a nice video, I am sure it will be appreciated.

Keep cool!!!

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

Ok, I have a confession to make. I bought another Camaro...




It was such a good deal, and it was in such good shape!

Don't look at me that way, I'm not an addict! I can stop buying Camaros any time I want!



I hope y'all have a great day!

Seeing that commercial has put my Christmas jonsing in full gear, it is not even on YouTube yet. I looked for it to show everyone here.

It might be time to start the 2013 Christmas commercials thread since the first one is out there.

Here is the next best thing to the commercial:



I just love this version.
