Watch What You Ask For
It seems a lot easier to choose presents for other people for Christmas than to tell people what I want. The main thing I want is to find someone who will dig our pond (the land is ready) and parts for a greenhouse which will cost ~$2,000, money we don't have at the moment.
So when the the wife asked me what I wanted, I said, "A big wad of cash". Guess what I got!
Sadly, it only adds up to $83, but I look rich. And that's what counts, right?
