The xmas holidays have this high value: that they remind Forgetters of the Forgotten, & repair damaged relationships.
- Mark Twain in a letter to Carlotte Welles, 30 December 1907
Just a quick shout out to everyone who visits this site whether frequently or occasionally– a quick moment to wish any and all who celebrate it “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays”! Whether you enjoy the day with friends and family or quiet reflection, it’s a day to reflect on the blessings that each of us share and to remember those who are less fortunate than us. For children it’s a day filled with the excitement of a new present; for adults, it’s a day to put aside the cares of every day living and just enjoy the spirit of the season. It’s a day in which mankind shows the best that it has to offer its fellows. It’s also the day in which TBS broadcasts the story of a young boy and his quest for a Red Rider BB gun for 24 hours straight! (Something that my friends over at TheBreauxShow remember all too well!)
I’d also like to thank everyone who visits this site on a regular basis. JBL isn’t the biggest Joe site on the web and it was inactive for far too long during the past couple of years. It’s meant a lot to me that people still stop by, check out the news and the reviews, and even post on the forums. (All seven of you!) As the admin, I’d like to just humbly say “thanks for sticking with us.”
So have a safe and happy holiday, don’t shoot your eye out, and thank you for visiting JoeBattlelines.com. We look forward to celebrating the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe in 2014!
