    A Christmas Adventure (Add to the Poem)

    I had so much fun with this last year. All you do is add a verse or two, or three.......

    ------------------------------------------------------------


    Twas the night before Christmas
    The strip covered with snow
    Santa was up, the cub ready to go

    Wilbur was waiting
    Hot toddy in hand,
    Checking the crosswinds
    Waiting for Santa to land.

    Santa stood on the ramp,
    looked down and said "drat!",
    the 800 by 4
    left main tire had gone flat!

    "those damn elves didn't preflight,
    they really screwed up.
    I need some bushwheels--
    I better call Wup!"

    Well Wup was tucked in
    but his trailer was not
    so we snuck in the back
    and busted the lock

    We grabbed 31's
    and then put them on qucik
    and the we decided
    we should write him a check

    So I whipped out my pen
    and my checkbook to write
    the biggest check ever
    I'd written in my life!

    I added a few bucks
    for the lock that we broke
    and tied it to a red bow
    with a hand written note.

    "Thanks for the tires
    and the good service too
    When Mrs. Claus asks
    I'll tell her to call you"

    When there arose such a clatter
    that Jr threw back the shutter
    just to see what was the matter with old 96 Disaster
    Remember, These are the Good old Days!

    the clatter was Mrs Claus,
    that dear fine old lady,
    firing up her
    big ski-fitted 180,

    she needed to catch
    Santa in the air
    so she cranked it on up
    to 24 squared

    the seaplane prop's howl
    made her poor ears ache
    but she was closing in on Santa
    with a 50 knot overtake

    Now Santa had been naughty
    We suspect probably twice
    And Mrs. Claus in the screamer
    Had a look to thaw ice

    Now Claus was no moron
    His momma raised no dupes
    He pushed the Cub over
    And flew into the soup

    Twas the night before Christmas
    My lips were all a quiver
    I gave a cough
    My float fell off
    And drifted down the river (boom boom)



    Twas the night before Christmas
    The most merry night of the year
    Some Cubs were full of fuel
    But mine was full of beer.

    Up strolled the Airfield Owner
    with his face as bold as brass
    Fuel is now six bucks a gall
    Oh stick it up your ***

    with no visible horizon, (all a blinding white mist...)
    he fired up the EFIS, for this Cub was a Smith...

    A flick of a switch and the R.U.D.O.L.P.H. blinked on (RED ULTRA DENSE OPTICAL LIGHT for PENETRATING HAZE)
    and Santa continued, buzzing merrily along...

    Yuletide was in peril
    with santa's cub in the soup
    cuz he looked down at the EFIS
    and it said to reboot!

    needle,ball,airspeed,
    those good old stand-by's
    kept santa's goose from cooking
    when the terrain started to rise

    he skimmed McKinley
    St Helens & Mt Whitney
    when he almost had a midair
    with a jet chartered by Britney!

    He skirted Vegas airspace
    & changed destination
    headed for Johnson Creek -
    he needed a vacation!

    If Santa was leaving
    not a single present delivered,
    all those expecting gifts,
    their lips will start to quiver.

    Ms. Claus noticed the departure
    and she made a quick call.
    She knew who could save Christmas
    Angie DeVora - without a single Maule.

    CubCrafters owners,
    Angie knew right away,
    all those shinny new cubs
    would replace santa's sleigh.

    In no time at all,
    all the owners were amassed.
    with this many cubs
    the deliveries would go fast.

    Hooray! Christmas is saved!
    and Santa got his vacation
    all the sport cubs and top cubs
    buzzed Johnson Creak in Formation.

    and in the slot position
    was Carey wearing mitts
    flying along in an
    old S1 Pitts

    without a warning
    and no-one alerted
    he stayed in formation
    but rolled inverted

    Canopy to canopy,
    Like Maverick in Top Gun.
    Santa gave Carey,
    the "sign", I'm number one!

    With the throttle full forward,
    "A magnificent flyer".
    But a belch from the muffler,
    set the forest on fire.

    The woods were a-burning
    Along the Left Coast
    People were fleeing
    Lest they start to roast.

    Whatever can we do?
    Santa's Cub has farted
    And now there is no way to
    Stop the fire he has started.

    No fear and no worries, Santa did say
    'Cause I'll fix it all ere Christmas Day
    And he fitted his Cub -- a real one, not fake
    With tanks and a spray rig
    And a day-old fruit cake

    And he took to the skies to fix what he broke
    Spraying bottled water amid the flames and the smoke
    And when he was done, with a twinkle he said
    Twas only me and my Cub,
    So go back to bed.

    As for me, I've got toys to deliver
    Now the fire is out.
    The Cub is all packed with some hanging out.
    I'll see you soon, so hope for the best.
    Just remember: God made all Cubs,
    Darwin the rest.

    But Darwin was only a prophet that talked of evolution
    It was guys like Attlee, Firmin, Burl and Wup that came up with solutions
    Cubs are to be modified to do the Cubdriver's tasks
    Santa so contemplated as he nipped on his flask

    Long wings, long gear, long flaps
    Big tires, big baggage, big motors and big gas
    Cross braces, shoulder harnesses, and safety cables to help in a crash
    Anything to help save your a$$

    So Santa has all of the trick stuff on his Cub
    But he doesn't have it all, that is the rub
    And hopes that his elves has packed some for his good boys
    And they never talk about getting a Cessna, Mauls or Husky toys

    Driving a Cub, we know the fit is real tight.
    Imagine the confines with toys and at night.

    Now remember that Santa's backside is quite wide.
    We see him fly by and can't believe he's inside.

    He got on the horn with his captain of elves.
    He said in a loud voice, "Next year fly a TWELVE!"

    It's faster, costs less, and performs almost as good.
    Got more space inside to carry what should.

    But then a cold chill gave Santa pause...
    trade the 18 for a 12 and have to face Mrs. Claus?!

    He knew she would huff and say something snide...
    on second thought maybe a Cub, another 4 inches wide.

    Another 4 inches
    gave Santa a red face,
    Mrs Clause would be happy
    if it was in the right place.

    As much as he wished,
    he knew it wouldn't work.
    Mrs Clause already said
    she thought he was a jerk.

    He came out of his dream,
    with a big shuddering slam.
    Wiped the frost from his brows,
    He had just passed a purple spam can.

    A purple spam can
    And you passed it you say?
    That's hard to believe,
    Said Santa's ME.

    To pass one at all
    Is way bad enough
    But to do it I can't imagine
    In the front of a Cub.

    Perhaps you should stop
    On your way 'round the world
    And I'll check you all over
    From bottom to top.

    As Santa sat in the seat of his Cub
    He had visions of sugarplums and
    The doc's rubber glove.

    Listen Doc, he said.
    Please listen to me.
    I don't need an exam as all plainly see.
    I'm as fit as a fiddle or maybe a tuba
    Besides I'm not where you are, but instead over Cuba.

    There's not much before me
    But miles of The Deep
    And I've so many to visit
    While all are asleep."

    I'll pass no more spam cans,
    I promise you, Doc. 'Twas way too painful
    Like a piece of the rock.

    But if I spy a lone Husky
    Or maybe a Maule
    All bets are off.So goodnight to you all.

    (two years already!!)

    The word has come down - from the Saint, Jolly & Fat. The Cub sports 35's and really trick slats!

    A 4 inch wider fuse, ported O-360, this Cub's really rockin' ...but Santa thought..."it needs something more...I'd better call Calkins!"

    The elves eyes lit up gazing on this Cub with wide bod,
    When one spoke up and said "Where's the thrustline mod?"

    The Thrustline mod, the Thrustline mod
    I'll stop at Pierce's so he can hang it on as Santa thought
    then up to Eaton's and check out his hot avatar bod.
    I can drink beer and eat cookies and see his photoshop
    but I best be quick, I got a lot of places to stop
    'cause Mrs. Claus will be waiting
    she can see me on her Spot...

    Santa was there with shovel and scoop
    Bent over to shovel more reindeer poop
    "This is the last time I clean out the stable
    Next year I deliver in a Piper Cub Coupe"
