An Official Red Ryder, Carbine Action, Two-Hundred Shot Range Model Air Rifle!

Well not exactly, but I do feel like Ralphie in "A Christmas Story" and how he feels about his very special Christmas present. To quote Ralphie: (it was) The greatest Christmas gift I had ever received, or would ever receive. I felt like that this Christmas as my family presented me with this:
A Felt F75 Road Bike complete with bike shoes.

While Santa delivered it, it was up to Daughter#2 to make the arrangements and her poor husband was dealt the hand of putting it together. To both and Santa (Ann) I can only say "Thank you, Thank you, Thank you". I had been coveting this bike for about two years now and I can't wait to give it a spin. I have to admit though I am a bit intimidated about the clip in shoes. I've never ridden with them before and I'm sure there are a few falls in my future until getting my feet in and out of the pedals becomes automatic. Daughter#2 is dropping by tomorrow and we're hoping to get in a short ride. I'm looking forward to it.

Actually, Daughter #2 and I did put the thing together (I wouldn't have known how to do it myself!).
Had a really great time with everyone.
We read your earlier post about your Christmas growing up and looking around our house at the tree we'd cut down from the farm and the Christmas music on our classic console stereo, sounded like us!
