I thought this was pretty cool, a customer emailed it to me . . . . Merry Christmas Everybody
Twas the night before christmas and out on the water Not a creature was
stirring, not even a otter, My wetsuit was hung in the shed with care,
In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there,
The kids were sleeping all snug in their beds, With visions of calm
water running thru their heads, Cynthia in her nighty, and I in my shorts,
Had just settled down for a nap of sorts,
When out on the water I heard such a splatter, I jumped from my bed to
see what was the matter.
I ran to the deck and put on my glasses, And looked to see if the water
was still smooth as molasses.
The moon on the water, shining below,
Made it easy to see the frogs eyes glow.
But what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a new type of Barefoot
Boat powered by reindeer.
With a speed hungry driver pulling a big dude so quick, I knew at that
moment it must be Saint Nick!
This big guy needed speed so he would'nt be plowin, He was much faster
than a wake boarder or skier on slalom.
Now driver, now spotter and judges too, Let's crank up this bad boy and
see what it'll do!
And then the next moment, I heard on the roof, The Ooohing and Aaaahing
of bare reindoor hoofs.
As I looked in amazement and wiped the saliva from my lips, I saw the
big guy do two beautiful flips!
This guy had great padding on his butt and his back, His wetsuit was
custom without any slack.
A bundle of gear he had in his boat,
I looked to see who was helping him tote!
His eyes how they twinkled, and he moved with such motion, His cheeks
were so red, he probably had'nt applied any lotion.
After his toe turn, his smile began to glow, With the beard of his chin
being bleached out like snow.
The stump of his pipe soaking wet in his teeth, It was obvious this guy
had done a back deep.
His legs were explosive, his arms they were pumped, I saw Santa going
inverted as he jumped!
He spoke not a word as he went straight to work, This guys moves were
effortless without even a jerk.
I watched in amazement as he did his line turn, It was obvious to me I
had alot to learn!
At the end of the run, his scores were so high, I heard the judges
exclaim "Now it's time for a Rye!"
He climbed in his boat, to his team gave the command, And away they all
flew, leaving us on the land.
But I heard him explain, as they flew out of sight, Merry Christmas to
all and to all a good night !!!
Best wishes for a joyous holiday season, and all the best of health and
happiness (calm water too) in the new year !!
Happy Holidays to all, and Hope all is Well! Our prayers to everybody nationwide, and especially the families in Connecticut Travis @ Hillside Honda Marine
