December 22, 1996 Sunday
Christmas is just around the corner, and I’m finally done with my shopping. Yesterday I bought an NFL video for Dad and simple braclettes from a Sandburg Mall vendor outside of the K-Mart for Ainsley and Holly Andrew. For Ainsley a gold one, and for Holly Andrews, silver.
Before going to the Hub last night Hoke gave me a baseball with a faximily of Babe Ruth’s signature (he got it at Sam’s Club). I really like it, and will put in next to my computer, along with my growing collection of photos and momentos. For my friendly Hub co-workers I did perhaps a very Will thing: I wrapped the braceletes in a small boxes, and then wrapped those in ever larger boxes, until the final one was larger than an industrial microwave. We were able to wedge the huge, green-and-red cardboard boulder in the back of Hoke’s Thunderbird with a litttle effort. I, however, never got to give them their hulking gift last night. However, I still get to work New Years’s Eve with them. So I’m pretty excited.
Keeping you informed,
