I forgot to say

My nephew is 18 on Thursday. For his two year older brother’s 18th, I made a candle (nicely floral scented and pink bow accessorized), with $180 worth of two dollar coins inside. He then had to wait for the candle to burn down; not impressed.

 

For my younger nephew, I  thought that putting $5 notes in separate helium balloons would be good but my husband took it one step furthet. He proposed getting 90 two dollar coins and welding them into a metal pipe.

 

So that’s what we’re doing. His birthday present will be metal pipe, complete with hacksaw.

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.
