    If your DH is anything like mine then you better come right out and say it. Mine doesn't take hints.

    Yeah, I usually received something for my motorcycle, until he finished it, he used to brag and say he got me chrome for Birthday and Christmas.

    Now... I just go out and get what I need....

    Best wishes, Happy Birthday.

    Mine either. If I want something I am better off printing a picture and handing it to him and telling him exactly how to get to the store to buy it. But if I do that he is great about getting me what I want

    Most men don't take hints. They ain't programmed that way.

    That's true at our house too! This way I'm never disappointed and he comes out "smelling like a rose"!

    Hope you get what you want. Last year my sewing machine gave up its last leg around my birthday--so I got my wish, a new sewing machine. (Hope you don't have to do anything that drastic to get one though.)

    Send us his email and we will inundate him with suggestions! LOL! Imagine his surprise getting emails from all over the country/world telling him to buy you a new machine!

    Maybe you can find pics of the one you want and leave them all over the house.

    On Long Island - go to 142 Medford Ave., Patchogue - Yesterday I brought my new Brother home(Laura Ashley NX-2000).
    It's amazing, and the staff at 112 Sewing Supplies gave me 3 hours of EXCELLENT instruction. They said I can receive unlimited help in operating the machine, and I believe them - they are very professional and want to be of help. Something I did not experience last time I bought a machine somewhere else.

    Speaking of DHs (or men in general) you will enjoy this YouTube presentation called "The Nothing Box". It is very funny and too true in many cases.

    Happy Birthday. I hope all your birthday dreams come true!

    My husband pointedly will never, ever get something that has been requested. I find it better to just buy it myself and then be surprised by what he actually picks himself.

    Good luck ... and early wishes for a wonderful birthday!

    Mine never remembers my birthday, so he guilts himself into whatever I would like to have. I just giggle. He is so funny

    Leave some pictures of the machines you are interested in laying about where he will see them. That works for my wife... Best wishes and an early happy birthday to you.
