    Better than a card!

    #2 son presented me with a can of sweetened condensed milk and a bag of dried apricots for Mother's Day (on Monday- but he did call on Sunday)

    I totally love both items.

    We used to put a can of ripe olives in each of the kids' Christmas 'stocking' - actually it was a brown paper grocery bag - but it worked for us.

    Personalized gifts are the BEST! It means someone is really paying attention to you, your likes and dislikes, etc. Apparently nobody in my family has ever been able to figure me out.......

    If you like them that is all that counts.

    I love gifts like that, in which the giver knows exactly what you love . . . and gives it, instead of something "for show."

    My hubby knows he can get me chocolate for any occasion, and he'll pass muster. Anything past that is "extra credit;" anything less is "doghouse"
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!
