Now if they would just sell a robotic dishwasher and clothes washer.



If you have pets, be careful. I know someone with those and their dog got the squirts one night and there was crap spread all over the house from the friendly robots.

They may have advanced in the past few years to know if they are spreading dog crap all over the house.

I doubt it - they are pretty basic, fortunately I don't think (hope) that will happen in my house

We quit getting each other Christmas gifts years ago. We both buy what we want throughout the year, so at Christmas, we get names off the Angel Tree, and get gifts for kids that might not get much in the way of Christmas gifts. Feels much better that way.

A new shock for the used ATV she bought for herself 6 weeks ago. If she's nice to me, I'll put it on for her. Came in yesterday.

If I can figure it out. A mechanic I am not. Hope to have it on by spring..... smile

Mine asked for a pair of Wiley X polarized shades ($$$) for fishing. Larry Potterfield is boxing them up right now. LOL!
I will think of a few more things as well.
It's tough to keep her gifts a secret when we share the same checking acct. and email address. I have to be quick on the delete button.

LOL! Smart man, thinking ahead!


Yes, smart that she can't throw it.

But, with a two-handed grip can she get it high enough to whack you with it. Not necessarily standing either. They've been known to use those things while a fella is napping.

A small one, big enough for one egg, will hurt a lot less.

I buy her a country ham, get it sliced


Then she cooks it up a little at a time and makes homemade biscuits.

That’s a genius at work

Do I take her word for it? 😊

That's what she said last year, so I took her word as truth . . . didn't go over well. Probably do something different this year . . .
