I am constantly getting candles or bath salts from my in-laws for gifts. It’s become a running joke for me. They think I’m hard to shop for but quite simply…just pretend I’m a retired, 68-year-old male librarian when you shop for me. Scotch, slippers, woolly things and dusty books suit me just fine.
“There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in travelling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position, and be bruised in a new place.”—Washington Irving
