My Gift








                   2016                                                                2017                                                                                                                                                                                                In 2016, the gift from my son was this travel game of bocce. We had just done our backyard last year, so this gift was meaningful because we put in a bocce court.  It made me laugh because I could now play bocce whenever I went!

In 2017, he gave me a 1.75 bottle of Bailey’s Irish Cream.  My thought process: I am becoming more important with him.

When I was in college, my dad just became plain stupid. I couldn’t imagine listening to anything he said to me…and I let him know it.  I’m not proud of that, just honest.  After I graduated and I was working, it amazed me how smart my father became.  He started to make a bunch of sense!

My son Tom, is in ROTC and will be joining the army when he graduates; this makes me extremely proud of him. I THINK I am becoming LESS stupid an maybe starting to make some sense. That is what the 1.75 bottle of Baileys Irish Cream meant to me!

We will see. Next year, possibly a shirt?
