A: I know! A potato!

Q: What is the best gift for the person who has everything?

Why didn't I see this at Christmastime? Shopping DONE.
Because if they have everything, surely they need a potato.

This is an actual, real ad that I saw today. What is even going on in this world? I mean, yeah, I get that it is intended as a prank — it’s just that if I was inclined to give someone a potato, I’m pretty sure I’d want to customize it myself.

Last Minute Halloween Thoughts

Well, we pretty much missed Halloween for the second year in a row.

Last year, the Hubbster was in the hospital recovering from seven heart attacks.

This year, we had a torrential downpour that has taken our pond from “mildly low” to “you better build an ark”. That means no trick-or-treating, no wandering downtown enjoying festivities, nothing. It rained so much that our cooler, fishing rods, and tackle box that were set safely at the fence near the pond are now floating in the pond… along with two orange lawn chairs. This is a photo of the pond right now. Unfortunately, it is dark outside.

We did have our Thanksgiving dinner tonight, though, as the Wee Little Miss will be visiting her father on the actual holiday.
