Yeah. So it's nice to be back! Anything big happen while I was gone?

Welcome back CHRiSTMAS SPiRiT!

We discovered oil on the back forty of the Christmas Tree farm shortly after you left. It was really quite by accident as Westover was out taking soil samples to see if he could turn the place into another Merry Network website. Well to say the least we were all tickled.

We dealt with the tree huggers that showed up out of nowhere by the playing “Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer” alternated with Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime” on Merry Christmas Radio over and over until they finally packed up their righteousness and left.

Then we pooled our resources and hired roughnecks form the coasts of Louisiana and Texas to extract the oil from the ground. This is where things get fuzzy. Naturally we thought that Auntie Mistletoe and Maureen spoke French well enough to make the arrangements. When the roughnecks showed up we wondered why they brought so many horses, bulls, and clowns. Turns out they were part of a rodeo association and not true oil well roughnecks. Who knew that Canadian French and Cajun French were so different?

By this time we were so anxious to become millionaires that we organized ourselves with the rodeo guys and gals, who were at least from South Louisiana & Southeast Texas, to get on with the oil extraction. Elfworks organized the Cajuns, so we ate good. JayIsh and I sortta hung out with the clowns and shuttled tools back and forth while distracting bulls. Binger kept quizzing up the Texans until a fine Opera featuring the Two Step was written and performed every evening after work. Who knew rodeo clowns and JayIsh could "paus du lux" in tu tu’s and cowboy boots?

This went on for about a week before we hit the gusher. That’s when all the attorneys appeared out of nowhere to “help” us with the legal process. They were spouting off about stuff like drilling rights, land stewardship, land ownership, trust funds, and what not until we all ended up in litigation up to our Santa hats. That took a quarter of the profits from the well.

After we paid off the rodeo guys and settled all that legal stuff, the Gold Members got into a big fuss with Platinum Members as to why the Platinum Members should receive a double share of the profits. Back to court we went. All that took another quarter of the profits.

Once we ironed out our differences and were speaking to one another again, we embarked on a Worldwide MMC Tour were we partied in the hometown of every member! Of course we hired the rodeo again and performed the Two Step Opera at every stop! And of course we always ran into legal problems over the horses and cattle that always got loose and tore up the towns we visited! That took up about all of the rest of the profits.

So, you’ve not missed much. We are pretty well back to normal here on the forums since we all reverted back to our former lives after the oil well debacle. At least the redistribution of our temporary wealth was spent on having a great time!

By the way, I squandered enough cash as seed money to to start another Christmas tree farm on the next ridge over from the first one. Anybody else in?
