Over the weekend I was able to visit my 90 year old Dad for his birthday. It was the first time all of us kids were together in 7 years. My brother Bob is the one my Dad always tell to quite down...hard to believe when you read the shirt.
It was a lot of fun but when it came to a gift for the guy says "don't get me anything" it was tough. He lives in the Chicago area and would get mad at my brother for plowing his drive away because "it will mess up the drive way". Last year at 89 he was still shoveling his own snow.
We decided to get him a plowing service. Told the plow guy that she would sign the contract after his party "in case he didn't except it". I seemed OK with having someone plow his drive away this year. He still mows his own lawn though. It's just who he is.
You to be careful when gift giving this holiday season. See the video below of what this grandma got. She almost got a heart attack at no extra charge
