      I received the "main present" for the XYL today and I wrapped it and
      put it under the tree. It was obvious that it was some type of
      jewelry and of course that started the XYL wondering what it was.
      After a couple hours of taunting and teasing her, she "offered" to
      have an early exchange of one present <grin>. She got a very
      nice .925 charm braclet with 5 dog-related charms on it (she has been
      wanting that FOREVER!) and I got a brand new Blue Racer and a wooden
      carry case for it!

      I think it was an even trade....

        NICE!!!!

        I got my wife a mother/child pendant necklace (ooo....maybe I shouldn't
        say this in public, but I feel pretty safe here) which has a birthstone
        of our baby son.

        I packed the box it came in inside another larger box with a 5lb SCUBA
        weight. This is so it's obvious it's not jewelry!

        I don't think I've getting a Blue Racer, though.

          Now, I've got Christmas for our two younger sons all planned
          out and taken care of. The youngest is 20, the next one is 22 -- I
          got the 22 yr-old an FM transmitter for an Ipod Nano, and I'm going
          to give it to him in the Radio Shack bag, still with the $10
          clearance price sticker on it, and tell him that I think he might try
          to use it with his old MP3 player. When he decides he can't do that,
          I'm going to give him the Fed-Ex box (that he's already signed for
          while I was gone!) and tell him to look inside. He's going to find a
          black Ipod Nano with his nickname engraved on it -- ought to make
          quite the splash!

          The youngest is getting a 30 gb standard Ipod. The oldest
          (25 yr old) has already received his leather gig bag so he can carry
          around my old Conn 88H while he's working on the cruise ship the next
          6 months...

            grammar school 'bone to fill it, and then come up with a UPS box with a new
            Conn 88H-CL with that new rotor design everyone is talking about in rose
            brass!

            Then you'd get one of those GHD bugs - maybe even the fully automatic one!
