    What is on your Christmas wish list?

    Mine has a lined, hooded canvas jacket on it, a new pair of canvas convertible BSA olive green uniform pants, a light weight wind or track suit for working out in. Nothing fancy, just basic stuff that I know i will use.

    a new kitchen door... hubby has explained that the installation of a new door would involve replacement of some floor joists, which would require the removal of all appliances & counters... so I want a new kitchen door!!!

    I was watching a friends house when the top gear sheared off on her chain drive opener. I saw that kit and thought about ordering it, but she just wanted a new opener instead, so I installed if for her for free. Cool part is she went with the same brand we just put in at our house so we programmed our remotes to open each others garages. Makes it easy to check on their house or have them check on ours when we travel, etc.

    A rapha jersey. But it's too expensive for anyone except my wife to buy for me. And I think she has other plans.

    I am just hoping and wishing, for once, no family or friend drama (already started, a friend suddenly lost her husband last week...)... I frankly don't need anything material... I just want calmness, peace and love around me...

    New flooring for the house. We bought it and it is under (behind) the tree in the living room. Guess what I am doing between New Years and Jan 15 before I go back to work?

    That is what happened to mine, 2nd time (about every 5yrs). The door is perfectly balanced so it not like its getting overloaded.

    A couple days off and the opportunity to reset a bit. Don't need anything else.

    A nice leather messenger bag would be nice, though.

    I could really use pretty much everything suspension-wise for my car, and tires. And a transmission. But that won't be happening, unless I win the lottery. I have no idea how anyone can live without a car.

    The key is planning. Most importantly, live within 10 miles of where you work. Start by commuting to work. Use your bike to run errands. Be willing to have your ideas change as you get more into it. Selling the car is the last step.

    I need another work car, a water heater and eventually new shingles on the roof.

    Since all of that is probably out of the question next year now that I have medical bills I'll settle for new u joints, resetting the water heater switch every night after work and hoping for a bonus big enough in March to get my '83 Trek on the road. My Christmas bonus comes in March.

    So specifically: A Velo Orange Grand Cru compact crankset, a pair of Grand Bois tires, a new pair of Dia Compe brake levers, a Yellow Silca Frame pump, two sets of Velocals replacement decals and a few more little odds and ends to get her on the road next season.

    First things first after all.

    Edit:
    Oh yeah.....I gotta have a red and yellow merino jersey to go with that. That's just essential.

    My Christmas present was that it installed as easy as the online instructions led me to believe and my young son helped me with tools which kept him occupied for the hour it took.

    I could use a new woman, since my wife decided we were splitting up last weekend...

    Other than that, I'm hoping for a Pendleton wool shirt or two.

    And I'm about to pull the trigger on a Pake SS/FG build. Christmas present to myself. Started with an insane deal on some Philwood hubs over on SS/FG forum and has progressed from there...
