5 Golden Rings???

My daughters and I were field testing, my nephews remote controlled Jeep this morning(I believe in testing the quality control of certain presents before approving of them for final distribution). They had a Christmas CD plugged into the rental car stereo, and we were belting out some great sing along performances,(hey I can sing Bing Crosby better than Bing himself). Well I got distracted with another quality control project, and wasnt joining in with the 12 days of Christmas. On about the 6th day verse of the song, my 7 year old, taps me on the shoulder and is signaling me to join in with " Fiiive Gooolden Riiings", 4 calling birds, 3,.... and it just hit me. I said "Girls, it doesnt matter, what color the golden rings are,..what gear ratio are they"(and[thinking to myself] where are the 5 matching, golden pinions). They just looked at me with a confused stare....where did I fail with their upbringing?
Merry Christmas everyone.

Re: 5 Golden Rings???

Mel, I know you're married... but are you happy? :-) (all in good fun of course)

Any single female relatives of like mind? You gotta respect a woman who considers never-sieze to be make-up and can come up with a wish-list like that.

Oh, wait I already HAVE a Jeep-Chick! Maybe you could just give her lessons? Start small with things like installing Ford Shock towers for me/for Christmas?

Marry Christmas all...

Re: 5 Golden Rings???

Thanks...
My husband thought #11 was kind of ridiculous, I guess 11' for a whip antenna is ummmmmmmm......... big.

Most of my female friends & relatives give me blank stares when I start discussing the latest jeep renovations [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

I do have one friend though, I think she is a Jeepchick wannabe. The wannabe part is due to a lack of funds.
