Father’s Day Present June 16, 2010

Posted by Mitchell in Home.

Mom and I are going in on an Amazon Kindle DX for Dad.  I hope he likes it.  His eyesight isn’t so good these days and the Kindle has the ability to greatly increase the font size.  As a plus the local fishwrap sells Kindle subscriptions too so he can start reading the paper again.  So what are you getting for your dear ol’ Dad?

My dear old Dad was more into July 4th than Father’s Day. We always got him chocolate covered raisins for Father’s Day and then did a ton of fireworks on the 4th for him. I eat a package of chocolate raisins on his birthday every year and make sure I smell and see fireworks on the 4th, but I don’t do anything special for Father’s Day. The father in law will get a phone call, but he isn’t the gift getting type so we don’t do anything for him either.

Kindle is a great gift for folks who need larger print. They can get access to a lot more books and newspapers than they can having to buy the large print versions.

That’s funny, Enas…we got my dad a Nook 🙂 He seems to like it, now that my BIL set it up for him! Along with it we gave him numerous B&N gift certificates so he can D/L several books.

My dad likes the techie gifts over the clothing gifts. In fact, I believe he still has ties in the original gift boxes given to him by my aunts waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the 70’s!
