you can see that he really likes his blanket- and it wasn't the QUILT that he was expecting. the blanket even has dual controls, and an automatic turn-off, so we don't need to wake up in the middle of the night in a panic, wondering if it's going to burn the house down! anyway... i put it on the bed, and the first night i turned it on before i got in the shower, and by the time i got in bed, it was nice and toasty warm. it was wonderful! beyond wonderful. almost too wonderful to describe.
and that's when i had another Brilliant And Spontaneous Idea. for the mere sum of $2 a night, i will rent out
my Dave's blanket to any of the children that would like to use it. what a bargain! so far i haven't had any takers, but there's still alot of winter left! (although i guess i should take whatever income i get from renting out my Dave's blanket, and put it in a Pay The Exorbitant Electricity Bill Fund.)
and on another happy note, G's gift to Dave was this Ask Alice mug. Dave really likes this gift, too, and the mug is very popular- it's either being perpetually used or washed. (and not necessarily by Dave, either!)
