Happy Holidays to y'all, Hameegoes!!!!!


With apologies to Clement C Moore.....


'Twas the night before Christmas, I was driving Mex 1. No drunks, trucks, or burros, not even a bum;

Flying through the Vizcaino without even a care, Heading for San Nicholas, sure hope there's fish there;

The kids were asleep in the back of the 'burb. The tailwind was howling, quite a sound to be heard;

And Mamma in front ,and I at the wheel, had just settled down after quite a long meal,

When under the hood there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my seat to see what was the matter.

Away to the shoulder I flew like a flash, Tore open the hood, now where's that sound at?

The moon on the breast of the Tres Virgenes, gave a luster of midday to the cactus around us.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a Ford F-150, with eight tiny reindeer?

That truck was lit up!, all green red and yellow, that driver was odd, a jolly old fellow.

He skin was like caramel, his eyes were all knowing, and his clothes were all tarnished with dirt and some oil;

A bundle of tools he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, and the smoke, smelled like mota, he must be police;

A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head, soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, He poked, and he prodded, he even called me a jerk!

Air filter, heater hose, brake fluid, spark plugs, "the yellows are biting" he said with a shrug,

Guillermo's got dorado, Verdugo does too, lots of bugs in Juanico, and Cabo has blues

Radiator, head gasket, fuel filter, oil pan, he's stripping the 'burb! gotta stop 'im while I can!

Not to worry, he says, I have found the problema, there's surf wax stuck all over your carbuereta!

With a wave of his hand, and some strange smelling dust, all the parts flew around, and landed right where they must,

He sprang to his feet, to the deer gave a nod, rev'ed that Ford up, and drove away in a fog.

The kids were all sleepy eyed and all started stirring, "get in the car, Dad, we all want to go surfing!"

I looked down the road, I could not see a sight, the marg's at Mallarimo's must have been strong this last night!

As I climed in the cab, with a smile, then a chuckle, I soon howled with laughter, thinking about all that rubble,

Then I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night !"


Feliz Navidad, you guys and gals, and the best to you and your families in 2011!

So Dennis, I now have to apologize to both Moore AND DK?!?!? Crimony!! Look guys, it's been a really busy year. As I mentioned to Santiago (U2U), we bought another house this year (no mas dinero aqui), visited a few out-of the-way places on the cheap, and the hotel business (my livelhood - the tax side of it) has been a freakin' rollercoaster! Not to mention that I have been battling this darn creek/river/flood plain next to our new house all day today so, no, I didn't check Nomads today. In fact, I haven't checked Nomads since at least the 13th!! Drenched and cold - with stiff marg in hand, I remembered the date, and - oh $#!T!!!!! I promise to do better next year.

Thanks DK for having my back!

The software still uses GMT for edit times/dates (8 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time). Thus if he made the edit after 4pm PST, it would report as the following day.

De Nada my friend!

When your typical posting on the 15th passed by, I thought I would refresh your post from last year (I did not copy and paste it or take credit for itl... ). When someone thought you may have changed it... I went back to the first time you posted it on Nomad (I think)... December, 2004 and brought it up as well.

Merry Christmas Sculpin and Happy Festivus to all!:lol:

The Sculpin speaks only when needed, and IMFO, is appreciated. Thanks, dude, and happy holidays of every kind to everyone. Love those you're with, as the song says.

Love that place. Standard order: Double Double Animal Style, mustard grilled patty and grilled onion, french fries well done. The only problem is that the burger/fry smell lingers in the car for days, so anyone who gets in your car knows exactly where you've been. By the way, judging by the grease spots, I'd guess that the fries were in the bag on the far left in this pic. Am I right?
