    Neat koiguy! My hubby and I don't buy each other gifts. If we want something we'll buy it on sale after Christmas. Did get a real pretty globe w/ a tree inside that lights up w/ changing colors. My grand-daughter is still working on our present she wants to give us. I don't know what it is yet tho :)

    That's because ponds aren't very popular at the North Pole! :cold:
    I got a brand new Ferrari! But then I woke up. :grumble:

    Well, our family got screwed this year! Literally! :) We've been gradually stocking teenage son's tool chest, so decided to also replace some of Hubby's screwdrivers (since I'm usually the one who misplaces them or leaves them outside, or.....). Did that. Hubby gave me a handheld electric screwdriver; "Santa" put a couple of ratcheting screwdrivers in the boys' stockings, as well as a couple of "precision" screwdriver sets (can never find ours when we need them). Then to top it off, son got 2 different Sonic Screwdrivers (Dr. Who): one from us & one from a friend.

    Oh, and the cats got an official "Simon's Cat" cat bed plus lots of paper to chase and play with.

    Yay Sissy! That's sounds like the best.

    I got rocks. A nice pile of rocks and one very special christmas rock. And a nice piece of driftwood. I'll take pictures later. They are still in the car and I'm bushed. And sick. My FIL also gave me strep.

    told him that night he better live for our 40th anniversary . DR Zackhary only gave him a 10% chance after the surgery and I told him no way and that he has to make it .When he went back for his check up with cardiologist he had to tell me I was right ,he laughed and told hubby she was right and I was wrong .I told hubby I would haunt him if he died . :razz:

    This was our second year that we chose to skip the gift end of Christmas, and now that the kids are not babies, am pretty sure we will stay on this path (or at least til there are grandbabies to spoil LOL). IMO the gift giving end has become too commercial. We buy things for the kids throughout the year, dont need a date on the calender to say what day is a must. We do all the other things tho, not gonna give any of that up;-)

    We buy gifts for our children and grandchildren. Like j.w. me and my hubby don't buy for each other, we buy what we want either before or after Christmas. :)

    For the first time in years no Pond or Nascar collectibles for Christmas this year. Mark as you may have seen on FB I have become a little more out spoken about our 2nd Amendment rights. My son got me a two year membership to NRA, My Father in Law, Got me a clock that you can conceal a handgun in that is easy to get to yet safely hidden away. Got a few shirts, a nice wallet, two gift certificates to Bass Pro shops, a remote control helicopter, and a turkey fryer. Then today I went and used the gift certificates and my bonus from work and went and got me a Bushmaster AR-15 .223. Not that I'll really have any use for it but I figured if I was going to be able to get one legally I better get one now before they got banned. Oh and to top our Christmas off we got approval today from the Ins. Company to complete all the repairs that we haven't already gotten done from the fire done. All said and done it looks like 90% will be able to be repaired through the Ins. Co. May even cover part of the deductible from all the clean-up we took care of ourselves. All in all with all considered it's been a really nice holiday season. Even got to spend the day with most of the family even though it rained most of the day.

    So sorry Sissy. That is horrible to hear. We all had a nasty scare a few weeks ago with our 17 yr old's boyfriend. She drove him to the hospital because he said he felt like his heart was going to explode... This young man is only 19, and has high blood pressure (inherited from his dad)... His BP when they got to the hospital was 200/110... He so badly needs a new primary care physican, and even with this scare, the doc wont do crap for him. The first thing the hospital does is drug test him (which is clean)... The primary has him on anti anxeity meds, which make him feel worse... aka it was these meds that sent his BP through the roof... It is such a scarey thing for him to deal with... and then on top of our concern for him, we worry for our daughter... Parents will always worry about their daughters' "first love" but this takes it all to a different level.
