Walkin'

We have another houseguest this week.
Gretel comes to us via Wal-Mart, where a mechanic in the auto services department found her hiding in the engine compartment of a customer’s car. When the owners of the vehicle returned they were given a bill for an oil change, which they were expecting, and Gretel, which they weren’t.

Food For Thought

I always found it pure agony to come up with anything approaching the perfect gift for my husband. For starters, if he really wanted something we could afford, he had probably already gone out and bought it for himself. If he couldn’t afford it, you can be darn sure I wasn’t about to ask for the money to buy it for him. Material things are easy enough to think of– the stores are full of gadgets and goodies that men want– just watch him sometime as he gets near the sale bin at the hardware store.
