Santa spent a lot of time in Amazon this year collecting and delivering kids to my eleven grand kids!
Then, Santa was at his favorite local A/V brick and mortar and came across a pair of Demo Def Tech ST-L towers discounted down to $1,900 from their retail of $5,000. Impulsively (after getting the wife's approval) he gifted himself this precious gift.
Ain't Santa good?
Actually, it was my wife of 37 years who prompted me to gift myself.
In this season of joy I encourage you to obey the good book:
"May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth" (Prov.5:18).
This is what I remind my three sons who have given my wife and I eleven grandchildren.
Yeah, may your fountain really flow this year, but make sure it's only with your wife, and you will be truly blessed.
