    I got a Kindle Fire HD, a really nice big leather tote bag, some new pajamas, and some other little things. All in all a nice haul. Just Ron got all the Star Trek, Star Wars, and MAtrix movies in BluRay, plus a hunting blind and some new waterproof boots.

    Best gift was having hubby home for 3 1/2 days rather than the usual 36 hrs (he's a long-haul truck driver) Presents included a hard cover large sketch book, set of oil paints, set of good quality art brushes, acrylic paints, skulpting tools and the biggie...a Black &Decker skill saw which I so badly wanted, plus some other smaller gifts. We had a wonderful X-mas. -Leslie

    Our family has agreed to not go all out at Xmas. We do think the "forced giving" thing is one thing the JWs got fairly right. Of course, forbidding to give on Xmas is also screwed up. If we're going to spend big bucks on someone, we save that for the individual's birthday.

    I wish I could afford to get my wife a lump of coal like this:
