Dawg, you missed the perfect opportunity to make sure your baby bro gives you gift suggestions from now on. You could have gotten your 3-y-o nephew the same thing that my SIL and her hubby got for our two kids when they were around that age. Considering SIL and family were living 1000 miles away from us at the time, she had no fear of having to put up with this:

Fisher Price Musical Band Set





Actually, what our kids got was the version F-P had out around 30+ years ago. Still one noisy toy!

What are you doing?

CG, guess what I got him last year? A nice little drum and music set!

That may be why their parents don't want to give me any ideas!

I got nephew a really cool fishing rod and magnetic fish for his birthday. They join him in the bathtub, they float. Baby bro reports that nephew also likes to swing them around and bap his big sister.

Sigh.

Okay, then, you don't need my help in being evil!

He did get his picture taken at work for the contest, and says he flashed what he called a gang sign in the pic... (I suspect it was the peace sign, but I'll let him think otherwise.)

Apparently I've raised a latent cross-dresser! Hope he didn't stretch out my sweater, or spill anything on it!

I am off to Winthrop to get my meds and something for this sore throat. Will be back as fast as I can. I really do not want to go out. I would rather go back to bed.

Every one have a happy morning.

Django is off to the V.E.T. this morning. Hopefully he still loves me afterwards.
