    2 years ago my daughter saw me searching the internet for this lamp. I never bought it for myself. Anyway she found it at wallgreens and got it for me. I have been wanting one for years.

    Nice! I want one!

    Two years ago one of my sisters got me a smaller version of the lamp for Christmas.

    Also: I received my father's old Red Ryder BB gun in the early '60s and spent endless hours (and tubes of BBs) shooting Black Bart types in the backyard. :D

    Glad to know I ain't the only leg lamp man out there. I got my "major award" about 10 years ago. It was made from an actual maniquin leg. I still watch that movie every year. I was wanting a bb gun the year that movie came out, Kind of a wierd coincidence.

    Nice lamp cycloneman, I was very pleased with my gift this year. Besides having all my children & grand kids back, I got a RCBS ChargeMaster 1500 Combo. Already tried it and love it very, very much! That baby really works well!

    Wasn't that from "A Christmas Story" where he got that lamp?

    Anyway, I got an iPhone for Christmas. Been saving up for one because they cost $600 for the new iPhone 4S. Been saving up for one. Could afford the plan, just not the phone. Other than that, got some clothes from my parents and sister.

    Visited my grandma in the rehab place too. She feel and broke her hip a few weeks ago (she has osteoporosis and is almost 90 years old) and it seems like she's recovering well.

    Most excellent!

    I have a miniature version of The Lamp, a gift from my mother several years ago - it's a tree ornament with batteries in the base so it lights up.

    And I hear a guy in Terra Haute won a bowling alley.

    Rather happy with my gift. I had a 94 jeep cherokee with 260 K on it. Could see the highway through the passengerside floorboard. :eek:

    Santa brought me an 08 Dodge Dakota, crew cab, 4X4 with 27 K on it. (heated seats too!!!!) The wife told me the only thing I'm opening on Christmas was a car door. Although she also told me my stockings were stuffed with "her". :p

    Congrats on the truck Fred, really sharp! Looks like the "Leg Lamp" is pretty popular in all venues!
