    Ok, let's have some fun what with today being Father's day.
    What did you get from your kids? Me, a nice pair of Bostonians.
    What did you give your dad? Me, a pair of Kodiak work pants which are his favourite every day pant and a nice TH belt to go with them.

    my wife got me a miniature horse (which is really for her) so for mother's day and her birthday i'm going to surprise her with some size 12 mantellassis and maybe a Kiton sportcoat.

    I'm thinking of picking up Dad a cotton crewneck navy sweater from Borrelli. He loves that type of sweater, and I saw one at the Basement today. I'm just not sure of the size. The Borrelli size 60 is tagged XXL by Filenes. How would that compare to a Ralph Lauren XXL, which is what he usually buys.

    My wife and family don't even try to buy me gifts. The things I want are usually so specific and esoteric that trying to surprise me with something I like is an exercise in futility.

    My father's day gifts were:

    Waffles for breakfast;
    6 Skittles and a big hug from my 3 year old boy;
    Two fresh roses from our garden and a hand made card from my 7 year old girl;
    My 10 and 12 year old boys giving me a coupon which could be redeemed by them washing and waxing my car for me;
    An early bedtime for the kids, followed by a long, romantic evening with my wife.

    Fathers day gifts simply don't get much better than these.

    Life is good.

    Those are very good gifts, indeed, Kai. You have an enviable life, I would say.

    Did you put the skittles on top of the waffles? I hear that it quite appetizing.

    A smart man is one who knows and appreciates what's important in life.

    Happy fathers day.

    PS: Couldn't get forgiveness for the straw hat purchase somewhere throughout the day?
