Happy Holidays from Me to You

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays too, As there are different celebrations… some for me and some for you. And as we look to the sky on Christmas night We may see Santa's sleigh dashing in flight, But there are other objects falling to earth Some believe started life or created its birth. It's these black stones we hold in our hands and put on our shelves and display on our stands, That have an attraction one cannot explain To desire, collect, study the minerals they contain. So if you wish for one in your stocking, or under the tree Just remember, the best gift of all… are your friends and your family.

congratulations on what makes you happy, Greg. Just hope those black stones are not coal from St. Nick for being naughty!
