2004 Retrospective Giving Analysis

Eeuters 2004 Christmas Assessment:

2004 came through strong in the face of recent huge expenditures on hearth and home coupled with overall weak economic conditions and political unrest in various parts of the world. This analyst feels that if only these tumultuous parts of the world could come together with one mind and concentrate on my Christmas stash, the world would be a better place. Noteworthy gifts in 2004 include various items of hunting gear and an oblong box containing a new 7mm-08 Ruger lightweight hunting rifle. Accessories included a die set for reloading which we will expect to see as part of any package containing a firearm in the future. Stocking stuffers made a halfhearted effort at redemption over prior years' dearth, but still provoke some amount of dissatisfaction among the Ewing family children based on an overall-low assessment of stocking stuffer value. This remains an area of deficiency - a skidmark on the otherwise smooth road to yuletide materialistic halcyon.
