Well let's go shopping for the family... For dear old Dad, a Christmas wouldn't be the same without the "Smooth Sailing of Old Spice" because it is a gift for the "Modern Man".
For Mom it has to be something very unique, not a new pot or pan or new fancy steam iron, but something personal. So maybe some exclusive Fragrance Sets or True Manicure Luxury.
Now for my two "pains in the ass" older brothers (you can relate), a "Roy Rogers Roundup Holster Set" for sure-Shootin' "Hours of Pistol Packin' play" and a Bret and Bart Maverick double holster set with "Inlaid Gold Coloring". If they don't like 'em... THOUGH! :-)
For my two younger brothers, good kids as they are, a "New! 190 piece Two Silo Farm Set" and the "Realistic Allstate Deluxe Service Station". Where am I getting all this money? I have no real JOB! I guess I will have to mow about 40 more lawns.
Now this is what I am hoping for, the "Best Allstate 6-unit Passenger train with Triple Diesels!" (Go figure, huh!). In fact (and this is true by the way) I got the Paladin "Have Gun, Will Travel" double pistol and holster set with of course, a wallet with "Special Calling Cards". But my pistol set also came with a derringer, hidden behind the belt buckle. It was awesome.
Did you ever think back and try to remember were all your cool stuff went?
