    'Twas the night before Christmas
    And all thru the house
    The thing that was stirring wasn't a mouse
    The old RV was sittin' outside all cold and alone
    While the owner's were inside, warm and half stoned

    All of a sudden loud noises were heard
    The owners were the ones who now were quite stirred
    They ran to the door and let out a shriek
    To see a caravan of RVs parked in the street
    All were decorated with lights beyond any reason
    And their air horns were trumpeting the songs of the season
    A jolly old guy at the head of the RV parade
    Waived at the folks who were now not dismayed

    He started his engine, the others followed suit
    A last blast of the air horns was given
    As he hollered, "This has been a real hoot"
    And as they drove off into the distance
    He was heard to exclaim
    Merry Christmas to all, we'll be back again


    A very happy holiday season to all, BankShot...........(aka Terry)

    I don't think Rollin Ollens meant to post his version of this poem as a quote from another member as it originally appeared; therefore, I have edited the post so that the whole poem is visible.

    'Twas the night before Christmas

    As I sit in my Thermals,the wife in her robe,

    We live in our 5th wheel, we call our abode.

    With the weather turning colder,and no snow on the ground
    ...
    We figured ole Santa would still come around.

    With no slant roof to land on, No chimney to slide,

    Santa has for RV'ers ,customized his ride.

    He cruises up in a sleigh flashing Bling,

    He knocks on the door,and gives us a ring.

    Instead of TV's,radio's and clocks,

    He brings what we need, a new set of Chocks.

    He sets down his bag, and twinkles his nose,

    He pulls out sanitizer and a new flex waste hose.

    He climbs back in his sleigh,and chimes with a laugh,

    He circles the RV, giving it a bath.

    As he soars into the sky, and deep out of sight,

    Merry Christmas Full timers and have a peaceful night.

    Hey Darrell - You're just going to have to stop making them boo-boos. Not prudent and also you might get yourself in trouble with the copyright laws.................. :D

    Well Terry; I'm not all that worried about the copy right laws or boo boos. First, I'm a little hard to find. So far, we have not stopped long enough at any one place to even think about growing roots. ;) Secondly, my original post was deleted and the moderator posted it. I don't see a liability problem for me......maybe RVR might have to worry. And what's really nice is........if ya do make a boo boo, it's great to know some body has always got your back! :) No Bah "Bumhug" (that could get you into trouble these days!!!} for me this year. I'm going to let Jerry have a Christmas Tree in the coach this year.

    Okay, I'm going to add a little controversy. Bah humbug to those few people that want to ban the air play of "Baby it's Cold Outside". I'm sorry that you don't like what YOU think it means. Just don't ruin the spirit of the season for the rest of the world. Merry Christmas even to those spoiled sports!!

    Darrell

    Me thinks you'll be just fine Darrell so no worries about the copyright police dragging you out of your coach on some dark, cold and dreary morning. That would be a tad scary tho.....:eek: Mighty nice of you "to let" Jerry have a tree inside the coach this year. Whatever came over you to allow that...:rolleyes:
    As for those that want to ban the playing of "Baby it's Cold Outside" I have just one thing to say to them but won't for the sake of decency on this forum. What I might say however is do the word "Moron" strike a bell in the belfry they live in............:confused: Time to go, speed is of the essence lest a few of them try to find me and cause me to go outside where it be cold..............:p

    I watched last night an old holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life". I have watched this classic every year since I was a child, and enjoyed watching it with my parents. It always reminded me no matter how bad things got, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Especially if you surround yourself with family and friends. At the end of this wonderful movie, my wife informs me that she had read on social media that there is a movement in progress to stop the further showing of the movie.
    So of course I asked her the reason for this so called movement, what could posibbly wrong?. My DW calmly reads the concern of this movement. Children of this day and age cannot tolerate the story line of someone comtemplating suicide over money, it's just to harsh. I shake my head and turn the channel to "The Bells of St. Mary" sigh

    Now I understand why is hard to level your rig. It's not the site your on, it's the whole country that's off plum.

    Hey Ron - I did some quick math and not to correct you on this but the actual stats are currently running at 97.653% off plum. Most of whom are left are RVers........... :D

    Happy Holidays, Terry.............(aka BankShot)
