    And had quite the time with her.

    I'm not a big shopper. Just not something I enjoy. But I do it
    for every year that she can get her mother a secret present
    all her own.

    I ended up with a lifesize Justin Bieber (spelling?) display from
    a store. Talked the manager out of it for free. My poor daughter
    was so embarrassed.

    Then there was the guy in the alley with his "store" of stuff where
    you don't get receipts.

    And the Farm & Fleet, where I walked into a glass wall. That hurt.

    She settled on buying her mother a water fountain for the pool. Supposed
    to be a six foot fountain. We'll see in the spring. We stopped in looking for
    a new floatie lounger.

    But an enjoyable time well spent with just my daughter.

    Dads you gotta love them.

    Mine took me fishing. He'd bait my hook for me. First time I caught a fish threw the fishing pole at him.

    Leave it to you to walk into a glass wall, Spook! Hahahahah! [​IMG]

    But, ummm, what exactly are you going to do with that Justin Bieber cut out? I have a strange feeling you have nefarious/ hilarious plans for it....

    If I was given a Justin Bieber cut-out, I'd take it to the range. [​IMG]

    Good for you Spook, taking your daughter shopping!

    As for the cut out.. I thought for a long time my daughter was saying "Justin Beaver" [​IMG]

    Finally saw him on TV, was drawn to it by the loud squeeling of my 12 year old.




    I was not very impressed. [​IMG]
