THE ANNIVERSARY GIFT

On December 30, Don and I had our 35th wedding anniversary. 35 YEARS!!!!!
Anyway, I got him a complete collection of all the SEINFIELD tv shows on DVD. Every single one. Now personally, I could never find the humor in that show...it was about a lot of nothing. Granted there were some funny moments, but nothing that I ever made plans to watch. Donald, on the other hand, loved it. He thought it was hilarious. And still, when he runs across it while surfing channels, he'll always stop and watch. Which is why we rarely watch tv together.

Anyway, he wouldn't open my gift. He said, "yours has not come in yet." Yeah, right. I figured he forgot or just decided to let it go, which would not have been a wise decision to make. He knows better. So, his gift has been sitting, unopened, on his nightstand since Dec.30. Friends, I could never let a gift, with my name on it, sit unopened for that long. I tried to get him to open it when he was in bed with the flu for a week. Told him it was the perfect time to use it. But...no deal.

So...tonight he came in with my gift. And it really HAS been on order since before Christmas. The company sold out and had to make more. He did real good, too...I got a KINDLE! Do you know what that is? If not, go to www.amazon.com/kindle to read all about it. (tried to link...wouldn't work)
Now, it may take me a while to get it all figured out, but when he and Alex were showing it to me last night, they asked me what was the next book I was going to buy. I told them, and in less than one... "1"...O.N.E....minute, the complete book was downloaded and in my hands. Can you believe that? I am so excited. Just think, travelling, you only have to take that 1 small gadget and you can read as many books as you want. He said you also can have the entire Bible on it, and it comes with the dictionary included. Also Internet, and lots of other surprises that I will learn about when I have a tutor with me to interpret the instructions! I will let you know how it works...but, I think I am going to like this...alot!

First - Happy Anniversary!

Great gifts for both of you. Dom loves Seinfeld and never misses a show. Maybe I should look for the DVDs too. And a Kindle! Super gift! When you get it all figured out, be sure to let us know all about it.

Did Don like his Seinfeld's?

Happy belated anniversary, Tonja!

I bought my husband the Seinfeld DVDs last year for Christmas, since he is such a fan.
And, I am certainly getting the Kindle - it is on my list :)
Question - Does it have a light source? That is important for me since I read so much at night in bed.
Enjoy it!

Was it you or Kat who wrote about wanting a kindle for Christmas? I remember reading all about it then. How cool!!! What a guy - waiting to open his gift all that time! He did open his gift now - right?
