The 2008 Judge Family Christmas Wish List
and Comments Page!
Sunday, December 21, 2008, 8:17 AM
Welcome to the 2008 edition of the Judge Family Christmas Web page, now online for eleven consecutive years.  I realize we've gotten off to a late start this year but Uncle Rich and Joanna have graciously volunteered to rig...uh...draw the names for the family grab bag gift exchange.  The family has decided to continue our tradition as usual, perhaps as Grandma Judge would prefer.  We would like to welcome Tom and Diane to the gift exchange.   Because of the late start, please try to get your lists in as soon as possible.  You can send them to danny@schnolis.com.

COMMENTS:
  Danny:  Please get this comment section rolling by sending your comments to danny@schnolis.com.  
  Pat:  This is not Christmas related, but did anyone ever think to see the president-elect wearing a Sox hat?  
  Tom:  The reason the president-elect is wearing a White Sox hat is simple. When he put on a Cubs hat, the Secret Service men came running because they thought it was the international sign for "I am choking."  
  Danny:  I still have yet to play He Said, She Said.  Will we be playing on Christmas Eve?  
  Carol:  Don't the Hunters want any Christmas presents?  
  Duke:  Why does Lizzy want a gift card to griotsgarage.com?

 
  Carol:  HELLO!  Is anyone out there?!?!??
