that's a wrap
Today is my dad's 89th birthday!!!! It's always hard to find presents for men, but especially for older men who don't "need" anything. My dad has fond memories of his grandfather taking him into town to "paint the town red" at the local five and dime, so that was the inspiration for his birthday gift. I filled a paint can with some gift certificates to local shops in town: one to the bookstore, one to the ice cream shop, and even one to the package store! I used a paint sample as the card and I hope he has fun doing some shopping for things he wants. My dad is an amazing person, who at 89, still rows in a shell on the lake where my parents live. This is a photo I took with my phone last summer of my children watching him row. It's one of my favorites.
