BTUSER I started with a MR Beer kit and now I make 5 gallon batches and secondary, soon you will be running a bar in your home!
I got a can of popcorn (probably the only person who likes them) insulated socks and a 25 dollar gift card woot!
The kids got the Mrs and I a three day pass to the Mother earth news fair next Sept.
And a whole foods membership
One of the boys got me a Mr Beer Jug :coolsmile:
My son stopped by one day this past summer and asked, "What's up?"
I told him I saw buzzards circling overhead so I laid down in the grass playing dead
and I said, "You know what? I'm 54 years old!" He had a big laugh and I hope, a lesson.
Bought each other a house....the same one which works out well!
glad i,m not the only 50 yo "kid' here...lol
wanted a RC helicopter but got a RC plane instead...
then got another diecast dump truck to add to the collection...
oh yeah and.......socks
What a good looking puppy dog
I agree, very cute. Id be tired too if I were in a gift wrapped box all night.
Heck get more... Ive got about a dozen right now (planes that is) including 3 partially built and a few in the box waiting to get built... crashed or sold 3x that over the years
At 35 I think Im one of the youngest guys in my flying club of 150+ members.
Nice thermo, pen...
I got more beads for my Trollbead bracelets.....(lord knows I needed more!) :ahhh:
I got some giftcards and cold hard cash which is always good..... I posted a pic of my new 20 inch welders gloves in the Hearthroom.... :lol: you can tell what was my fav....
Mr Gamma said something else is coming for me....not sure what that could be.... :shut: That makes me a lil nervous...
Whatever it is, it can't possibly be as romantic as my gift to my wife.
Let me guess...you put a big ole bow on your forehead and gave her yourself...... :lol:
Think cleaning appliances!
Last year it was a Bissell, this year, a Eureka. Oh bother.
I got Mrs woodchip a years subscription to Essex Record Office online records so she can continue doing her family tree.
Her brother bought her a set of oil pastels as she likes painting and drawing.
I got a winter wooley and socks from Mrs woodchip, and my mom gave me money to spend in the sales buying new stuff for the garage from Screwfix.
A morning in Screwfix with money to spend is my dream prezzie ;-)
Ding ding- I think this is the winner. Trying to strip down all present-giving holidays as a matter of 1) reducing "stuff" and 2) making it about time together. What better way than to actually strip down in the process?
Uh yeah . . . actually that's about how we do it . . . were you watching out back with binoculars? (
Exactly. Its about spending time together:
"You know, that new dishwasher is going to save about 6-7 minutes a day, so you'll have more time to take care of me!"
"Six minutes? What, are we gonna do it twice?"
You're a true romantic, BT %-P
Well, more of a boxing day gift, but my Fil brought over a dulcimer for my wife and I. I have to say, its a pretty cool sounding instrument, and might even like it more than my fiddle.
So, now in our household with three kids, we have a piano, guitar, 2 ukleles, a mandolin, harmonical, drum set, recorder, banjo, fiddle and now a dulcimer. At least if we can't play them all, we can make a meseum, lol.
My best gift was my wife being home from the hospital on Xmas eve and morning.
happy boxing day folks.
