Plot twist: the presents weren't for you...My Dad, born '23, used to feel most Holidays were invented by people in order to make money from other people.
We celebrated them but come Mothers day & Fathers day and the worst offender of all Valentines day......he voiced his opinions a bit louder! LOL
Us 5 kids found it highly entertaining...from a distance of course...parents used to whack the kids back then! Yikes!
I just opened Amazon's website.....after getting nearly taken off the road by 1 of their tractor trailers this morning at 4AM! We were headed down Rt 3 at 62mph, me in the fast lane, him in the slow lane, ahead of my by 1.5 tractor-trailer lengths..... when he locked it up in the slow lane.....me, not knowing why Mr. Bigazz Tractor was slowing down, followed suite cause....well, I'm not stupid, THEN he throws that big beast into my lane and over to the WAWA turn lane in one fell swoop, by then his turn signal turned on as I went all the way to the right shoulder to allow him plenty of room should he decide a uturn is in order! JFC dude.....really? ...Then I calmed down and realized he prob just did what we all do once in a while...he just screwed up....ah well...........good thing for those "cat-like" reflexes huh?
An Expedition does not perform "cat-like" maneuvers, ever! LOL
Back to the original story......
So, anyway, I opened Amazon and found the Birthday presents Kerry ordered for me<LMAO>! She got me some fun things too! I snapped a pic, then texted it to her...thanking her. She uses my amazon so often that she's forgotten her own login.......and yes, she did put those things on her card, not mine this time! LOL
Very honest of you to let her know you found them! I hope you enjoy them whenever your birthday is...sounds like you might have got the dreaded birthday on the holidays!
My cousins birthday is new years eve...I don't think she's ever had a party "just for her"
I admire your take on the Amazon drivers decision making "we've all screwed up and made a bad quick decision"...very true! By the grace of God we go or something...Still doing it in a whopping artic is another matter
I'm still trying to sell old cars and get on top of business accounts and work is busy and may be a house move before Xmas...so all guns blazing here. We are not even sure the house we are going into has electric...worst case the torts go to the big car garage (in the separate offices) till its all resolved.
