Countdown to Christmas

Well I stopped buying gifts a few years ago for my children. Them rass wuking fuh enough so they shouldn't need anything now. I will concentrate on giving my little rugrat his gifts. 

Christmas has gotten kind of boring for me now, except for the food that comes around.

Last week we went to the US to do Xmas shopping, I buy my booze in Sarnia, Canada take it over the US and bring it back to Canada, the reason is the duty free in Sarnia is the best, largest selection. It was just my wife and me, but I bought six bottles, upon return the custom officer asked If I have liquor and how many, I said six bottles, she then said I exceed the limit that I am only allowed two bottles, I then said I did not know I thought we were allowed $800 each, by that time there was a long line, she then said I might not be so lucky the next time, bye.But ,I always exceed the limit, but seldom do they ask me about liquor. Anyway, a great mall to shop was Great Lakes Crossing in Michigan, lots of bargains, even with the dollar conversion.

Bai kp, that is very complicated. You buy the likka in Canada, bring it to the US and then take it back to Canada? 

For example I buy Eldorado rum 21yrs for $59 Cda 15 yrs for $30Cda and single malt scotch cheaper than the US . The US duty free don't have the selection. 

I can remember a cap gun was the ideal Xmas gift for a small boy, today them want cell phone, computer and other expensive gifts. Some parents have to work overtime or hold down two jobs just to afford the Xmas gifts.Sometimes, I would buy Xmas gifts as early in Summer when I find a sale, because my wife has a large family so do I.
