    What to buy myself for Christmas???

    Yep its that time again. Being tight fisted I also want to save myself some money so I will be aiming to buy my own presi on Black Friday when all the sales are on.

    I am very lucky in that if I want something I just buy it these days. Done that to such an extent that I simply do not know what I want, I do keep getting asked too so it would be good to supply an answer.

    Got enough good watches Rolex, Omega, etc Cannot get more cars on our small drive way, I have two. Motorbikes are too cold for me these days.

    So come on guys................ What do I say when they ask ........... "Frank what can we get you for Christmas?"

    That's a really nice problem you have there Frank... wish I had that problem!

    How about:
    Track day?
    Get a car detailed?
    Nice trip away in a hotel?
    One of those new Super-HD televisions?

    Or, if you have money burning through your pocket, you could always pay Ben Wilcox (our resident Gentleman electronics wizard) an unthinkable amount of money to develop Odroid for the XK?

    Good suggestions.

    Track day........ Been on a couple plus I have a mate who races at Silverson etc have a permanent invite to go along.
    Car detailed.... How shall I put this. More car has been detailed at least once a week over summer by me. See photos in links below.
    Nice trip away in a hotel. This is a regular treat to myself. Next booked for February at on of my favourite hotels Buckland Manor. https://www.bucklandmanor.co.uk/
    This is a previous treat..... https://www.jaguarforum.com/showthre...=1#post1042191 Thats my car outside another favourite Llangoed Hall. http://www.llangoedhall.co.uk/

    Got a 4K telly and computer too.

    Odroid dont think I could find a use for those skills. I used to put together my own computers but these days its cheaper and easier and more reliable to buy one ready made. As for building a system for the Jag...

    There are worse problems to have. Keep the suggestions coming. I would love to find something interesting or quirky, or techy....

    Weren't we invited to make suggestions last year?

    Or is my memory worse than I first thought, or is it my 2nd or 3rd.

    I'd be buying an Eames chair and foot stool.

    A lift is on my to do list right behind get a larger house with a large barn to convert and use. I do have a friend with one but would prefer to use one of my own.

    As for Hookers and Cocaine. Been married for 40+ years, the women would only want me for my body anyway. As for cocaine I get my highs from driving the car with the sun out, top down, music up and empty roads.
