  1. are you trying to warn Jane & M.L. what they may get for their BD? or are you trying to make Steve happy?

    • haha! neither! this is a photo that one of jenny’s cousins posted on facebook from her childhood. that’s heather owens around the late 1980′s (i think) and her dad, mike. we just celebrated mike’s 83rd birthday a few weeks ago. i actually made up the conversation & i’m waiting to hear the real story from heather.

  2. What a heart-warming story for the holidays. It all worked out in the end when Heather opened her other presents; a pkg of white tube socks, a clothes steamer and a pkg of D batteries.
