Well, I gave up on finishing Wally's shirt by Father's Day and bought him a gift certificate for Nook books.

I gave my husband 10 tins of tobacco from a company in Buffalo, NY (Pipes & Cigars) plus 5 new Missouri Corn Cob pipes & 2 dozen bits for the pipes. He loves it.

Dorothy, that's nice of you. I would have wrapped the unfinished shirt and given it to him. That would have brought a smile to his face anyway. We don't exchange gifts for Mother's and Father's Day.

The shirt suits him Lennie. Nice job. Dorothy I think you were very considerate. Hope feel more perky soon.

Me either Lennie. He is not my Dad. The kids are getting him a gift card to either Sears or Menards & probably some other small things to go with it. He has a BDay in a month so they have to try to think of something all over again then.
