the best of gifts, the worst of gifts

There are many differences between men and women.

There are many differences between fathers and mothers.

There are many differences between Banjo Man and me.

For instance, for Christmas I gave Sarge a crock pot.2014-12-25 014He was very pleased.  I also gave him lentils and soup mixes.

He likes lentil soup and he wants to learn how to make it, so this was a good thing.

Banjo Man gave him a toilet seat.

A used toilet seat.

With a bullet hole in it.

2014-12-25 017Look how happy he is!

The toilet seat is from the out house where our faraway cabin-in-the-mountains is.  The cabin is there, the out house no longer stands.

Sarge has big plans to fix up the cabin next summer.  Plans that include building a new out house.

Banjo Man was happy to support the project.

(Son #1 pronounced this to be the worst Christmas present in the world, but he doesn’t like crock pots either.)
