Re: Christmas giving programs

Really, Zem, it is not hard.  When they want cash for something - well
that's your clue.  I remember too, a friend of mine had lived in a series of
homes, moving too often, and they always had showers - never a bath tub.
She wished she had one so I gave her a doll house clawfoot with lotions and
such inside it.

My sister reminded me of another present for her daughter a few years ago.
Megan needed tires for her car and they were going to buy the tires as her
Cmas present.  I am as practical as anyone and thought it a great idea, but
you HAVE to have something to open.  So I went to goodwill and bought a
battery-powered racecar that didn't work for $1 and took the wheels off and
wrapped them for my sister to give her.  It took Meg a few seconds and then
the light went on in her head.

Seriously - the fun is in the giving, not the getting.  Giving is the best
part of Cmas and I love it!  In one of these posts I will tell you about the
owl lamp.
