Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays To All!

Recently someone on the list asked what a good Christmas gift 
suggestion would be.  Several of us suggested a subscription to 
Electric Radio magazine.  I made that same suggestion to my family as 
well.  I was hopeful...I watched the mailbox all month but nothing 
came.  I thought to myself that I'd just place my order in a day or 
two, after all, it was I who gave them the ordering information in 
the first place.

We were opening presents together and I was quite surprised to open 
up a small package with the December issue of Electric Radio!  I 
learned that my two teenage sons (also hams) ordered it on the sly 
several weeks ago.  As a contract engineer with an office at home, 
I'm usually the one to get the mail, especially the week after 
invoices go out.   One or the other of them casually intercepted the 
mail every day to make sure it was a surprise.  Boy was it!

I learned that they each took a turn looking through it before 
wrapping it and putting it under the tree.  I was told that it was 
more interesting than they thought it would be.  Perhaps this is 
their way of saying that they want to better understand the Old Man's 
appreciation of Boat Anchors!
