One Of The Best Gifts Ever!

My wife says Iím tough to shop for, but she knocked it out of the park for my recent 52nd Birthday. Through Shutterfly, and sneaking off with my phone for a couple of hours, she had this book of my last couple years of riding with our daughter, her High Schools Cycling Club she founded, riding with friends and family. I was really touched, and will always cherish this gift.

In a time when so many gifts are one click away on Amazon it's so nice when people take the time to create something personal. When I used to do a lot of B&W photography I would also give framed prints as gifts to special people. They were always appreciated.

And the fact that you let her get a hold of your phone shows you have nothing to hide.

That is a true gift.

Being that phones (most) are pretty pricey these days & contain electronic banking abilities within it, my phone's whereabouts is always known. I hardly want to carry my own phone as I'm accident prone with electronics lol
-Oh Hey!
