Mothers Day, Are You Ready?

It's much much more that a charm... Its a pawn!

I don’t quite know how this happened, but Mothers Day has turned into a gift day for my wife! I am supposed to give her jewelry according to the ads out there. SHE IS MY WIFE! Not my mother.  So. How can YOU use mothers day as one more cynical chess move to advance your need for that set of bear claw vents that you need chroming but now are stuck buying some lame Pandora charm that says Mom in a heart in it. SO.. here goes.

First, face it, its a gift giving holiday for you. Your wife is going to get a gift. But instead of a heart with Mom in it. NO, not a bear claw charm.. They are too big and would break her wrist. See.. this can be tricky. And no, a bracelet made from 3 inch copper exhaust pipe is not good either. Nor are earnings made from light switches on a dash. ” oh honey they are rare honey comb knobs from a barrel back” NOT good.. What ya need is jewelry that looks a feels like jewelry.. But has some boat in it. Like this sucker on eBay. Its a charm, yes, but it’s gold and cute. So it could work. Add a card that says. You are one smok’n 2 cycle mix moma. Or, “You are my On Golden Charm” and no there is only one…There, now you are all set. And for your mom. Visit her, and consider yourself lucky that she is still around.

    Mom’s in Heaven but I must say, my wife Karen was and still is a good Mom and deserves a special day. It’s up to me to see that her day is special as the kids have their own families to be with. She’ll get calls on Mothers’ Day from the kids and grandkids, but the rest is up to me.

    I’ll serve her breakfast in bed, I’ll have flowers, the irises just bloomed and I’ll BBQ some pork ribs for dinner. The drawback to this is she’s the earlybird, so I’ll have to talk her into going back to bed after she fixes breakfast. She guards her irises with a shotgun and she’s on a diet, but will enjoy watching me eat those ribs.

    I tried the “your my wife not my mother once” the key word is “once”. My wife wants extra clips for her LCP 380… A few years back I got her a 30 round clip for her 9mm Glock.

    The “She’ not my mother” angle is a sure way to end up with some very expensive firewood! I’m sure the smell of varnish burning is much less satisfying than when it is applied.

    Maybe somebody (hint, hint) should invent an official “Woody Boater Day”, a day that they are showered with special gifts for that special Woody Boater in your life.

    Let’s see what would be on the wish list… a head gasket for a KBL, or some new lenses for your classic bow light, a new Ace Hardware bailing bucket, or…

    What’s the old expression; “What comes around, goes around” or something like that. If we’re nice to mom (kid’s mom) now, what can we expect next month? Not much (but I can always use new underware or socks).
