Willie and Mary, how much larger is that Caravan chair when folded compared to a standard folding lawn chair?
Man that's almost too comfy. I could spend the whole day kicked back in my chair drinking Rum and Cokes. Too bad the wife will have to keep getting up to make me a new drink.Amazon also has these cool trays that clip on the side of the chairs. The cup holder has a slot for the handle on your coffee cup.

People ask me what I want for Christmas, Birthday, Fathers Day, and Anniversary. I tell them every occasion that if it's an affordable item for a gift and I want it there is two categories. One I already bought it and two it's on my Amazon wish list. There are items ranging from $5.00 to just over $100.00 organized by desirability. In the six years I've had the list I have received two items from the list. The rest of the gifts were what someone thought I would like and are sitting on a shelf or in a closet somewhere collecting dust. It's really a shame because the things on the list are things I would truly like to have and would actually use.
When I was a young single man I fixed occasions. I told everyone to not buy me a gift. Instead take the money you were going to spend on a gift for me and apply it to something you really want for yourself, because that's what I'm doing. After a couple years people took me at my word and for the most part stopped buying me gifts that I didn't use anyway and I bought some things I really wanted. Fast forward to old married man with kids/grandkids and I just can't seam to make that work anymore.
I could buy anything and everything on the list. I don't actually need them, just would like to have them and would use them. I don't wait for someone to gift me things I need, I go buy them. I actually don't desire or expect a gift for occasions. For my birthday for example, I'd much rather have the people I care about most to come over and hang out. We could throw some food on the grill and maybe a couple beers, remember times gone by, and plan for future outings or get togethers. The only thing I need from the list is a new shower faucet for the PUP. It decided on the last outing that it was going to no longer fully shut off. I put it at the top of the list and if it isn't a present for Christmas I will order it the following day and remove it from the list. Most of the things are gadgets for camping or stuff I regularly use and require replacing from time to time like jigsaw blades, shopvac filters, mower blades, and trimmer string.I guess I look a it differently. I have the means to buy myself any gift that anyone else is going to give me anyway.
