    Why start now? You still have a couple of days.

    Fifty Five hours is hardly "cutting it fine".

    It is when one full day of that is allocated to travel. I haven't packed for the 'family holiday vacation' yet either.

    You'll be passing through an airport - there is usually something to be found - Tony Bennett CD ? Chocolate?

    Vouchers are great. Purchased from a store that has what the recipient is interested in, they give the right gift every time.

    When the kids were small, we would discuss what they were to get and then I would give my wife a big roll of cash to go shopping with.
    She seemed to enjoy that,and it suited me.

    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    They had "Father('s) Christmas Night" here in town on Thursday night: burgers on the street corner near the library for a dollar's donation to the ice rink fund, increasing discounts as the hours pass to keep the Dads out shopping, and Girl Scouts to wrap your presents while you drink mulled cider. Brilliant. Best Christmas shopping ever. Not a chore anymore.
