All I want for Christmas…

Over the last several days it seems like all I’ve been doing is racing around to get online orders packed up, boxed, and labeled. A big stack everyday just sitting all ready for either the FedEx guy or the mail lady to pick up, to start that long journey to their final destination.  Panic mode hasn’t started yet, but will in a few more days.

The phone will ring and I’ll hear a voice say “Can you get that here for Christmas? Could you send it straight to them? Can you wrap it and put a card in the box for me?”

I would love to say, this wouldn’t be an issue if you would have ordered this a month ago…but I can’t, since I haven’t started my own shopping yet.  What’s the hurry?We still have almost two weeks.

So, as I went flying by the Trailhead Supply coffee pot, the regulars were all sitting close to it like keeping warm by a campfire, they looked up and asked “Since all you do is pack, or sell packing equipment and build pack gear, what do you want for Christmas?” 

Then they go on talking about my shop at home packed full of saddles, tack, and the mountain of plastic tubs full of manties and ropes.  

“Really,” they said “What do you want for Christmas?”

I asked “Who’s paying?”   

I mean I always wanted a Ferrari Spider, oh and make that a convertible, but it just won’t pull the horse trailer.  You know the older I get the less I really want. But to be honest if I could have one thing it would be more time to use all the pack gear I have and the mules I feed. Until I win the lottery and can take more time off, keep those orders coming in, and we will do everything we can to get them to you by Christmas.

See you on the trail or in line at the post office.

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
