Re: Fess Up..Bragets..What's Ya Get.?


I'm thinking of framing it, and hanging it in our living room for all to see. After all it's the thought that counts right? Picking up a card from the grocery store, and maybe even not activating it...

My fiance's tried fixing it, but I say it's worth the $$ to just leave it be, and keep everyone off my back about getting along. Just put it on their tab.

He's probably hated you ever since you married his daughter, that should explain it...

Re: Fess Up..Bragets..What's Ya Get.?


My wife bought me some shirts and a pair of pajama pants from my son.
My mom called to remind me she isn't getting me any gifts.
Inlaws sent popcorn with some stickers that had my name on them.
I was pretty excited to get something to open. I haven't gotten a present in years.

Re: Fess Up..Bragets..What's Ya Get.?


Have seen coffee bars in the master bedrooms at the Tidewater Builders Association Homearama over the last few years and always remarked how decadent they were. Guess what we ended up with for Christmas? I was completely surprised. Decadent...yes...guilty.

As for real stuff... finally went for the Kreg jig while buying recip blades at Lowe's, and a super smooth Bosch 1/2" hammer drill and impact driver combo for a steal on Amazon.

Best part of Christmas was purchasing some serious tools for gifts for my son and two of my daughters. One does remodeling out in the southwest, and all three are discovering the joys of home ownership!

Happy New Year and best wishes for success this coming year to all on Contractor Talk!

Hey, at least they "thought" of you!

My in-laws used to lavish our kids & my wife with gifts, and all I'd get was a sponge bob t-shirt. Then 6 yrs ago, communication stopped altogether (their choice) with all of us. Keep hoping someday that will change again.

.....But I've kept their daughter & I'm not giving her back! She's an awesome wife & mother!
