DW suprised me with a Cuisinart mandoline, which I promptly used to prepare potatoes for a casserole. She also astounded me with a Rockler wood lathe and a set of Robert Sorby lathe tools! I'll be spending lots more time in my woodworking shop from now on. I replied with some jewelry she had been admiring and a couple of nice items from Coach. Also a couple of collectable Coca Cola bottles to add to her considerable hoard, plus a flattened Coke bottle for the wall in her sewing room. Best gifts for both of us were calls from the kids and grandkids. Most precious gifts of all!

"The Bread Baker's Apprentice", "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" and a Cuisinart 3 cup mini food processor.

Mine & DW's favorite gift was our eldest DD's engagement announcement. We have loved the guy from the first day she brought him around. Yep, Mama is a real happy camper (me too) because now she can start planning a wedding. There goes my retirement fund.

I have an old school chum who I haven't actually SEEN sinc 1967......... we re-discovered each other at Classmates.com about a decade ago. W usually exchange modest gifts, via UPS (I'm on the east coast- he's on the west) He's always been a thoughful gift giver, but this year he's outdone himself...........

twelve-year-old balsamic vinegar and DiBruno's Private Collection Fruttato Olive Oil
The vinegar is AMAZING ! How will I ever go back to the "Neuvo" stuff ?
Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !

I got a radio controlled alarm clock, some shirts, a nice big gardner's mug, a share in a bottle of wine, chocs & biscuits. My sister also gave DW and I a lovely long pewter dish, some flavoured oil, balsamic vinegar and some other cooking goodies.

A nice shirt, my Legion dues paid, a new case for my ipod and a bottle of Cognac.
