Great Gifts!

My wife got me one of the greatest gifts this year. We have this tradition of buying each other a book at Christmas time. This year she got me this book:



The Princess Bride

S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale
of True Love and High Adventure

30th Anniversary Edition














But she couldn't leave me with just the book. Though the story is a great story on its own, what really brought it to life was the movie. So, she got me the movie too!


I believe that this movie has fallen into the classic category. I can remember the first time I watched it. My mom made me do it. I wasn't interested in it, but she convinced me that it was a worth while watch.


Of course I ended up loving it.


My wife didn't stop there though. She topped it off. The next gift she got me was like the icing on the already wonderful, cream-filled cake.


She got me this t-shirt:


Billy Crystal: "You are the Brute Squad!"


Great Gifts.
