Stopped by the seed and feed today. . .

To pick up gift wrapping materials in hopes I can wrap my wife’s presents before December 25th.  The hard-to-wraps gifts–like beef jerky and live bait—become stocking stuffers. Let me know if I missed any necessary gift-wrapping supplies:

  1. Burlap
  2. Duct Tape
  3. Bailing Wire
  4. Gorilla Glue
  5. Vice Grips
  6. Unbleached Muslin
  7. Box with holes in it for surprise hamster gift (This year’s “big” present).
  8. Seed and Feed promo sweatshirt for Race Ready horse feed. I might wrap the hamster in it.
  9. A box of Mason jars. (They camouflage the diamonds, rubies, and gold jewelry.)
  10. Fire ants (for the gag gift).
  11. Palmetto bugs (for the other gag gift).
  12. Binder’s Twine
  13. Pop rivets
  14. Kraft paper
  15. Rope (right-handed laid three-strand).

The love with which we give our spouses’ Christmas gifts is often shown by the care taken to wrap everything. So I travel to the ends of the earth buying $10000000 worth of gift-wrapping materials for $38.30 worth of presents. Everyone does this, don’t you think?

I haven’t yet figured out how my wife can come into the living room, look at the presents beneath the tree, and instantly know which ones I wrapped. It’s a mystery to me.
