Old Ship just wants to say a big "Thank you" to everyone on this board. You freely share knowledge and tips that make us all better fishermen and better people. God bless all of you and have a very Merry Christmas from my family to yours.



We are spending ours at the Gulf of Mexico. I wish I had this view from our home. 71 degrees and just beautiful.

Ship, I hope you and your wife has a great time this Christmas while spending your Holiday at the Gulf. Looks like a beautiful place y'all are staying at.

I hope all of our Crappie.com family has a Bless Christmas with your families.

Ship, same to you and yours, and everyone else!

I hope you won't mind my using your thread, as was going to start my own, however I think it fits pretty well with what yours says.

During the Holidays, many people (out of concern and compassion) see people who appear to spend the Holidays "alone". Recently I was extended an invitation to spend Christmas with a CDC Member, and had another tell me his wife felt sorry that I was spending Christmas alone in the bus parked in a Campground. Please keep in mind I'm not trying to turn this thread into a "me" thread, as I'm sure there are others in the same position as myself, so it's just not about me. I just wanted to share things aren't always how they seem.

I've spent many Holidays by myself, and it truly doesn't bother me. This Holiday Season has been the best one I've had in years. Sure, I'll be "alone" (but not lonely) and depending on the weather, may be fishing Christmas Day.

The point I'm getting to is that I've made a lot of friends thanks to CDC as of late. Sure, we'd all like to have a little more money, a nicer/bigger boat, the ability to fish more and to catch more/bigger fish, but all that seems insignificant when you look around at the friends you've made and the time you've shared with them.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be spending Christmas day with family, like it used to be as a kid, but as we get older, families separate a bit, some move out of State (or in my case Dad winters in Florida), some we lose, many start their own families, and for whatever reason. the Family get-togethers go to the wayside.

And while I sure don't have money, nice boat, all that stuff I mentioned, I still feel "rich" in the friendships I've made this season. I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world. Material things come and go and are easily replaced, true friendships aren't.

So Merry Christmas from someone who was given the best Christmas in years by the Members of Crappie.Com, all the friendships I've made are true gifts :santa

Ship, Thanks for the Good Tidings and I hope you enjoy the beach. Always something special about being at the beach. Merry Christmas to you and all of your family.
Neon, you truly are a rich man. You are doing what you feel you want to do, and more of us wish to do that than will admit. Having spent a couple away from family when I was younger and traveling, I know what you're saying. Enjoy the holiday and all the friends, Merry Christmas to you and everyone here on CDC.

Thanks Ship, Wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season

Merry Christmas Ship/Mike and Ms. Loretta as well as to you and yours, and to everyone in the forums. I've found everyone so far to be friendly and helpful and hope that I can be that to others as well. Thank you all for what you've taught me and for all the good advise and encouragement. May God bless us all! Just remember why we celebrate Christmas and why He came to this planet in the first place!
