Birthday Present for Grandpa

What do you buy a eighty year old man for his birthday?  That was the question that had plagued me for the last three months.  My grandpa has never forgot any of my birthdays for as long as I can remember, and he usually picks out something that his perfect for me.  But he is also the type of person that will buy something if he wants it – which makes it hard for someone that is looking for a present for him.

So I am always keeping my ears open for any kind of hint of something that he might want.

A couple of weeks ago he mentioned that he wasn’t happy with the siding on his home.  For the last forty years he has had wood siding that needs to be painted regularly.  He was getting tired of having to maintain the outside of his home at his age and was looking for a change.

I knew I had found the perfect idea for a birthday present for him.

I looked in his neighborhood to find some siding contractors Plymouth Michigan, and was able to find one located at 51225 West Hills Drive, Plymouth, MI 48170, which was a short distance from his home.  I booked them to come do the work while my grandparents were on vacation, so that when he comes back he will be surprised.

That is just in a couple of days.

I hope he loves his birthday present.  I better start thinking about next year.

Birthday Gift for Mike

If you knew my buddy Mike, you would know one thing: he doesn’t say much.  I don’t think that I have ever met anyone that was less demanding and happy with what they have.  But this means that he is one of the hardest people to buy a gift for, which makes this time of year that much more frustrating.

This year, I have an ace up my sleeve since I made a point to speak to his girlfriend and ask her for ideas as to what to get him for his bday.  According to her, I can’t go wrong if I buy osprey backpacks – so that is exactly what I am going to do.

Last Minute Birthday Gift

When it comes to shopping, I do just about every thing at the last minute.  So I am a bit embarrassed to say it, but I am in the process of shopping for my wife’s birthday gift right now.  Don’t get me wrong – it is not late, but there is just not a lot of time to get her gift on time.

So, I have been trying madly to find find patagonia on sale locally, but I think that I will have to turn to the internet to find the best deal.  All I know is that I need to find her present before I go to bed – there is no more time left to procrastinate.
