One who observes and thinks about what has been seen, what has passed by my way, what greater meaning lies behind and beneath life's small events.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!MERRY CHRISTMAS Thanks for the suggestions but she got the toaster for her birthday, now I cannot decide between a great perculator or a Vacuum. ;-)Sadly, the rifle is in the past, hunting is gone the way of white wall tires. Maybe she will get me a revolver.Reality: STrange how advertising has changed.... huh? Good one we needed a smile...Sherry & jackPS: Sherry really likes your sidebar ESPECIALLY your picture, that is the truth.
I was 66 when that was taken. Now, I will be 69. Man. How did that happen? Thanks, Sherry!
Yeah Sherry just said: She looks cute in that pic. LOL
Thanks for my first laugh out loud moment of today. These are Priceless and also very funny and also not so funny as I remember all of this. My mother would have given her right arm to get all that canning equipment
My mom as well!
Call me crazy but not my perfect idea of a Christmas gift! But super funny!
I always wondered about bridal showers. Would she return the stuff?
Smiling. Ruefully. Domestic duty appliances will fill many women's Christmas stockings today as well. And perhaps guns - though they will be a rarity here.
It always seems to be in counties where hunting is allowed and ones that like target practice. Women are the same. I would have been.
She can shoot that friggin' toaster with the rifle.
It would be a good target.
You know, by a certain age, my wife did start to get excited about those types of gifts.
I might like a new toaster.
I guess some women might want those sorts of things for Christmas. If she has to cry to get them, she might need to find another partner, though.
Yup. He needs to up his game. She needs to go window shopping for a man who can obey.
The scary thing is Christmas isn't too far away, and I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet!Well apart from some Christmas cards :)All the best Jan
I have done shopping online. I am finding I am researching more before I buy and probably spending less money.
What? You don't want a hand mixer??
Heeheehee! While i will pass on the canning equipment, i'd love the money to go get new glasses. My eyes need them badly.
Just got new glasses. $$$
I'm cheating this year, everyone is getting cash to spend at the after Christmas sales, except the youngest. I will take him shopping in a toy store and make sure he knows my $$ limit.
Good for you in avoiding the problems in a store. I have been making a list, checking it twice.
OMG kitchen items to work or a gun. I'd get the gun and shoot the son of a bitch who thinks an iron or toaster is a gift. :-)
Oh, I understand, girl.
I have to laugh at these gifts. I had a friend who gave me a vacuum cleaner for my birthday one year. It was (and still is) the most unwieldy and hard to push vac in the world. It has lasted forever, probably because I use it so seldom (grin). I'd rather have a gun, please.
Get a Dyson--I have one of those vacuums, and my daughter used it once. Gave me the Dyson. Get the gun.
My husband's first ever gift to me was a blender. 1970. Ah, the good old days - NOT. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
I read out loud the first couple to Laurie. I had to explain a "bottling unit" was in fact a canning set-up. I just have to wonder if the adsmen really thought their products were great gifts, or if they chuckled right along with us...
Go ahead...it won' t hurt...I'd love to hear what you think!
