This morning at the Stockman, the subject of Christmas shopping came up. I mentioned I hated to go shopping and that the Warden would just as soon I didn't go with her.
Clem said, "Not my Claire. She wants me to go with her every year."
"Really?" stated Chester, "She really values your opinion on colors and gift selection?"
"Nothing like that," confessed Clem. "She just wants someone to push the cart, tote the bags and pay the bill!"
"Well I only buy one gift each Christmas and that's for Chloe" stated Chester.
"How do you decide what to get her," I asked.
"That's easy," explained Chester, "I just call up my oldest daughter and ask her how much I owe her for Chloe's gift."
And the Spirit of Giving continues another year.
