Aster1 Posted December 30, 2011 Report Share Posted December 30, 2011 BIG RED Hello from balmy Iowa & the most anticipated Caucus in the country. 52 here today and warm for the last week. Wanted snow about 2 weeks ago, but since we didn't have a "WHITE CHRISTMAS", I can be good if Big Red get's no exercise this winter. What did everyone get that ended up as their favorite few things this year? I offer up great suggestions to my sweet wife (couldn't do w/o her) and she usually gets me stuff she "wants me to like" and almost always mail orders a bunch of P.O.S. quality stuff. One year, since I'm an outdoors guy, she saw in one of those hundreds of M.O. cat., what had to be a 50-1 survival axe. Oh Lordy, it had a hollow handle and everything and I don't think you could cut yourself with the axe blade if you tried. I still remember the little plastic compass that was on the end of the handle. The one in a Cracker Jack box would have been better to find your way with. I was a good sport about it. Oh yeah, I got a nice candle display too (had your 3" tree branches cut and arraigned with a cutout for a votive candle in the top. Man, I did a Hollywood performance on liking those beauties. This year my Mother-in-Law (bless her 95 yr. old heart) got me a "Tweedy Bird" Chia Planter. Now I know where my wife get's this from. Post what you got that you love. I'll let other get started & then I'll chime back in. Aster Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
