Perfect gift for Grandpa

Remember I said I was going to get my dad seamless socks this year? I changed my mind when I saw this:

Snort. I saw that too, and sent the clipping to my father, who is 73 and wears caps.

My boys are all staring at me because I am laughing so hard! I'm definitely sharing this with my dad.

Oh my gosh! My father-in-law needs one of these.

Ha, ha! I saw that too!

I could get one for both of my parents that said "Give us a discount, we're cheap!"

I wish I could give that to my late grandfather. He was all about the Golden Buckeye discount.

You know, I just love looking at those Sunday paper ads. The collector's plates, the weird orthopedic shoes, the bags that carry 80 pounds of crap but fold up to the size of an iPod. Fascinating stuff.

I'm sure your dad will love it.

Lol! Great. Perfect gift :)

My dad is 75 and he would SO wear that hat, if only to embarrass me next time we hit Cracker Barrel. ;)

Excellent!

A related oddity - I was checking out prices to the local production of the Nutcracker, and regular tickets were $24. The senior/child tickets? $23. Doesn't seem like it's worth making them different!

If only my parents wore hats.

Gee, he's just going to be so thrilled with it. I say stick with the seamless socks.

I do believe I snorted just a little.
