"Saturday? On a Saturday?. You gun people planned a meeting on a Saturday evening in December? Are you nuts?"

This was my wife's comments when I asked her if December 16th was open, because I wanted to go to a "gun meeting". :roll: :roll:

...So far the Social Director of the family said that the date is (temporary) open, but it might change depending on holiday parties and/or other social engagements. :oops: :oops:


Guess, I might be there...... :(

Priorities, priorities.

The New Thing meeting, IMO, is far better than some stuffy party full of tacky Xmas sweaters, lousy eggnog and lousier conversation/company.

Works really well for us. Phorvick and I will be teaching a class. Afterwards I go home, drop off the weaponry, then LB and I will head out to Stub & Herb's.

You may want to "talk" to our friend Joel.
You know, the one who is married to the spouse that he refers to as "The one who must be obeyed". :?

As my first year at a company that does this sort of "fun" stuff, I am not sure what I am going to do.

Yes. And I am the only single person my age, except for the other guy. All others are married, have kids, are 35-65 and 80% women.

At the new thing at least I will have one thing in common with the others.

I was hoping to make it, but it doesn't look like I can. :( I hate to miss out on meeting everyone.

The Mrs. and I both agree. Christmas "get togethers" are too much work with zero fun.

This is not a "gun meeting" but a holiday party for the forum! It's all based on how you look at it and communicate it to the wife.

What does a holiday party entail... Meet with people you spend to much time with, drinking maybe involved and you might get a trinket (holster swap) to remember the meeting that you might use in the future or might not. Sounds like a holiday party to me! :D :D :D

That'd be my take, too. I'm hoping that anybody who is absent on the 16th feels -- with good reason -- that he or she missed out.

Srigs, you are right. I should have worded the "party" differently. She is just use to me going to "a gun thing". She has no problem with it, and out of habit I referred to it (the holiday "party") that way.

I'm going to start watching carefully what descriptive phrases I use with her, when describing a "gun thing".

Jeez, and the possibility of swapping several (really NICE) holsters for something I can use would be a nice holiday present. I defiantly will take your advise, starting tonight. :wink:

I would suggest moderation even if the booze is free. :wink: Remember... you will still have to work with them after Christmas.

As for a parties... not including TCC's party on the 16th, I have 4 parties plus a brewery tour scheduled. Two of them have open bars. Plus there is another party that I haven't decided on. All before Christmas.
