A rare Knucklehead Pine tree we found in Yellowstone a few years back. As the children get older, as I get older, I am starting to wonder which would be more important on the long clock, Holiday Gifts or Holiday Memories. I see so many gifts that end up in the closet in a bedroom, and a year later, two years?, they have never been opened and end up at the local thrift shop. Then I see the makeshift obnoxious hat made of the wrapping paper the gifts were wrapped in sitting in the front on a display shelf. Perhaps its time to rethink all these 'filler' gifts if a hat made of the throwaways is more memorable than the gift it concealed. Move those funds to something more memorable like a getaway somewhere, or fun local event together. That 5th remote control car, or 14th lego set will long be forgotten...in January, but a one off trip or event, makes a memory forever. Ah the ramblings of an old fuddy-duddy...
