I think I mentioned it in another post already, but now that it's official, I received:
Kubota oil, fuel, and air filters
Metric nutdriver set
Lift pins Nice work gloves
Okay, so I did my own shopping, but that was the agreement I had with the wife this year. We threw our total focus on the kids, and to lower the pressure a little we decided to just pick up a few things for ourselves and gift wrap them so's the gift count would still look right. /w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif
I went ahead and got a couple of things for wifey anyway just 'cuz I like to surprise her. She surprised me, too -- with a dozen pair of new socks! /w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Santa was good to me this Christmas. Pressure washer, and a neat
book on tractors and trucks. I can't wait to use the pressure washer,
but today was not the day. High of 40 and a 20 mph breeze. Plus we
still have snow on the ground here in Georgia, almost a week old snow.
Florida looks better all the time. Tuffy was terribly disappointed we
didn't get to play with the new pressure washer, but she did look at
some of the pictures in the book.
Heck, Al, some of us old folks are worse than Harv doing his own shopping. I've ordered the stuff to put the hydraulic tip 'n tilt on the tractor, and the dealer hopes it'll be in this week sometime. And my wife wants a new coat (I think we both would prefer that she pick it out), we went into the store where she wants to buy it last week, took a look at the crowd and the long lines at the checkout register, and she decided sometime this week after Christmas would be a much better time to get it. So we're still waiting on Santa Claus./w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif
Of course, we did both get a few things from other family members, so I have a new cordless Dremel tool and fancy Chess set, along with the socks, wallet, pen & pencil set, indoor/outdoor thermometer, and of course, the peanuts, mixed nuts, and chocolate that they all know I like too much./w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif

My wife let me shop early/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif. In Oct. I purchased a 5 ft.Brush Hog.Then I took her out for dinner and we just happened to go through Sears. They had a great sale on a new tool set. She asked me if I needed it and of course I said yes. So she took it up to the register and now it has a new home. What a year!!! New tractor, fel, rear blade, and a brush hog all in one year!!!! The best news of all is, we're expecting our second tractor driver in June/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif
Take care, Al
