The #1 Favorite Gift This Year.

I'm always fascinated to see which gift will become the favorite. It is always something bizarre and usually something from the local dollar store.

The Number One Favorite Gift This Year in the Grizzly Den?! (drumroll please.........)

The Whoopie Cushions From the Dollar Store!!

You sat down too quick Troll, that’s what’s happened to me when my grandson done the same to me. So he made me sit down slowly “again”, grandad! Hey presto the fart sound. Mind you with all this rich food about…

At least my kids are now too old to play in the boxes. That used to be their favorite gift. ;)

I finally finished your tag today!
What can I say? It's the holidays!

Unfortunately, I'm at the age where people are reluctant to actually purchase me anything. I suppose my tastes don't help much; Alison had to walk my mom through the process of purchasing an opera.

I think my favorite present has to be the "2005 World Champion Chicago White Sox" poster from my uncle. I suppose this is his time to gloat, but that doesn't mean the poster can't be turned into a dartboard.

Happy New Year, Monica!!

I consider meeting yourself and Troll as one of the highlights of 2005.

I wish you and your family much joy and happiness in 2006.

The Princess got a whoopie cushion from her piano teacher, and I thought that thing would never die.

Happy New Year!

Thank you all!

The whoopie cushions need to go - and soon!!

Papa popped one - another got a hole that was taped up and only produces half-hearted farts now. The remaining one is going strong.

It's one of those presents I have had to ask, "WHAT was Santa thinking??!"
