What would like for Christmas? Dad

Post by frederic on Sat Dec 26, 2015 4:14 pm

You know what its like, family/friends ask what you would like as a gift on the 25th Dec/birthday morning. and you in your mind are about to say 'Haven't a Scobie!!'' doggy

 Well now you can ask for a Maglite LED 3rd Gen. Torch.
My it is certainly a Beast, with a Brightness sun of 524 Lumen and a beam throw of 366m+ on full power.
It has 4 Modes of operation, General, Outdoor, Law, and Tactical each with three beam intensities dependent on the number of on/off button clicks! 
I tried it out on Xmas Day evening and was amazed at the beams throw so much so that I was not surprised to get an e-mail from Belfast boat Coastguard telling me to PUT THAT LIGHT OUT!  hugegrins

When Andy one of our sons asked on the 19th what I would like for Xmas I said 'A replacement LED bulb for my existing 2'D'cell Maglite at ~£10 an ideal token gift, you can imagine my surprise when the Postie brought a fair sized box to our door on Xmas Eve. 
All this packing for a item the size of a festive sprout? I mused, then when handed it thought sudden_idea 'No, not a bulb but the full torch'.
So in an unusual move for a Scotsman I immediately rang Andy's mobile to thank him for my gift!
(New Years Resolution 'Must not get carried away with generous moves/actions') 
So now you know, 
Always keep a list of the gifts you would like, ranging from a replacement bulb to perhaps a new M/van, should anyone ask
 'What would you like for ...??...'
