    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, When all through the shop,
    The lights where flickering, And my welder was hot,
    The body hung over the suspension with care,
    Hoping that Saint Nick will soon put a lift under there,

    Closed my eyes and imagined being in bed,
    But there where visions of pistons pounding in my head,
    Now the welder has burnt my cap,
    Letting me know I really need a nap,

    From across the shop there arose such a shatter,
    I ran over to see what’s the matter,
    There sat my windshield, with all that smashed glass,
    I pulled the electrical chord too hard, sending tools into it in a mass,

    Now I’m working on those bolts rusty and old,
    Breaking my knuckles open on the steel so cold,
    I bandage up and try again,
    If it breaks, hope there’s an extra in the bolt can,

    The truck bed filled with presents to be had,
    If I don’t fix this, the kids will be really mad,
    Running out of time, the clock is ticking away,
    I probably should have done this yesterday,

    I wipe grease on my pants and shirt,
    My head is pounding, it really does hurt,
    Dawn has broke, kids are waking up,
    I need to move this old pickup,

    I put it all together and give it a try,
    The effort brings a tear to my eye,
    All this time busting my ass,
    Turns out I’ve just been out of gas.

    Heres the poem Canmore wrote last year Muddy!

    'Twas the night before Christmas
    I sat all alone
    The computer screen glowing
    with my second home.

    The children were sleeping
    all sound in their beds.
    The wife said "GET UP HERE!!!!!"
    "In a second....." I said

    I was reading the stories
    of boys and their trucks,
    of Jimmys and Blazers,
    of good and bad luck!!!

    When all of a sudden
    I heard a strange noise
    out in my garage
    where I keep all my toys(GULP!!!)

    I slipped on my runners
    and ran out the door
    towards the garage
    "Man, is my back SORE!!!!"

    I couldn't believe
    the sight that I saw-
    A huge lifted Blazer
    'bout 11 feet tall !!!

    The auto door opener
    was whining and creaking
    so to the window
    I started sneaking.

    I almost fell over
    when I peeked inside
    because there stood Santa
    "My God, that's his ride??!!!!"

    The joy that I felt
    when I saw what he brought
    made my heart pitter-patter
    and my eyes fill with dots.

    For on the garage floor
    he laid down so nicely
    an assortment of parts
    that were SO very pricey!!!!

    A 60, a Raptor,
    some very sweet springs,
    and a lovely door panel
    with almost no dings!!!

    His head swung around,
    and he looked in my eye
    and he ran to his Blazer
    without a goodbye......

    "On Octane, on Lift Kit,
    on Rancho, on Piston,
    on SparkPlug, on Crankshaft,
    on Swamper, on Igniton"

    I cried as he drove off
    'cuz the dust hurt my eyes
    "To all CK5ers
    keep the spirit ALIVE!!!"
