Best gift was from my dad, who has given me $10k to donate to charities of my choosing. Far better than anything else he could have spent that on.
Hope everyone had a great holiday!
awesome gift. giving is better than getting.

I received a BB gift card and a BB shoe horn, I wanted a real horn one, and Security Analysis by Benjamin Graham . Other than that just a lot of knickknacks.

 

The GF got me a book of the Hobbit (mine has fallen apart over the years and I wanted to reread it with the movie) and a framed picture of us.

Damn man, I'm pretty sure that alone would disabuse a lot of folks of the notion that your Christmas was quiet. laugh.gif  Sounds like a good one.  Enjoy Mexico, my wife and I were married in Mexico and go back every year.

Haha quiet from the standpoint of gifts to open, I suppose. Not too much wrapping paper on the ground this year.

I'm really excited about Mexico. This is the first "couple" trip I'm taking with the gf, so should be a solid time all around. It will also be a nice January reprieve from this crap weather.

You'll have a blast, I'm sure. Caribbean or Pacific side?

Two nights before Christmas he told me and my two brothers what he had planned on getting us if he had not been confined to his first ever hospital bed. He told me he wanted to get me a pair of nice shoes that I can wear in my wedding in 5 months. He handed me over the money he was going to use and told me to get something special.


Personally for me I knew I wanted to get a pair I could have for life, just in case this is his last Christmas gift to me. (However I pray there are more to come)


I went out and bought a pair of black Renzo Ferragamo's from their Tramezza line. The are beautiful. One piece of leather makes the whole upper of the shoe. I considered lesser options, but it just did not feel right. The store manager let me borrow a beautiful brown pair so I could wrap, open on Christmas morning and show him. She was gracious to add some shoes trees to go with them as well.


When I got to my last gift on Christmas morning, I opened the Ferragamo box to show him what he got me. He absolutely loved them. He asked to see them one more time after I initially put them away. It was a very special Christmas.

great story. sounds like a neat man.

athletics - hope he's doing well??

Happy Holidays.

I got a JZ Richards tie, a box of cigars, and a laser pointer that clicks forward and back on PowerPoint presentations. Along with a whole bunch of books.

 

Check this bad boy out.
