My Dad, who is 87, called last night. He was returning my call from a couple weeks ago. He also let me know how much he would be sending us for Christmas. He sends money every year to each of us kids, me and my five half-siblings. Doesn't do any good to tell him not to send it; you'll get it anyways. The last few years I have sent Dad a restaurant gift card each year, for the various restaurants he has in his town. He loves to dine out and he's still thanking me for the cards in June; so I think he really enjoys them. This year I was going to do something different and send him a DVD from the Discovery Channel. I hadn't made my mind up which one yet, either WWII in HD or the series on the USS Enterprise. He's a Navy man, through and through. However, Dad told me yesterday NOT to send him anything for Christmas and that if I MUST send him something to send him a bottle of Old Spice. My response to that was that after 60-odd years of getting gifts from us kids that he must have enough Old Spice to last through several lifetimes. Speaking for myself, I know that was the gift of choice for him from the time I could walk and talk. He swears he's fresh out. So...get him the Old Spice or get him something different? I really find it hard to believe that he doesn't have a secret stash of the OS somewhere.
