Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

arg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and everytime i say, ill find them and give you the linky linky he gives me a speach on christmas spirit and how nicer it would be if HE went out and picked some for me!!
Im gonna friggen cry!
yeah he is a heck of a nice guy...but you have no idea what he is gonna come up with!
Best suggestion? Give him a specific wish list!

Quick Edit:
Explain in the list that while his heart is assuredly in the right place, racing is highly technical as far as equipment goes. Then tell him that the wrong wheels would be like slapping a Briggs and Stratton Lawn mower engine on a Harley, based on the fact that they are both gasline powered engines!
