    I know exactly what I am getting.
    At my age my kids know if I can't eat it or drink I don't want it,and I am seldom hungry ;D

    I'd love a new watch, but I don't think the wife is up to spending that much on me :( Someday I will get my Monster...

    Same thing my wife got for Mother's Day. 1/2 of a new grill. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Something to really kill off the :rant: foxtails that have invaded my lawn! Then again, maybe I won't wait that long.

    I bought my wife a Nintendo DS Lite for Mother's Day along with a "Brain Age" game. She hasn't put it down. She loves it. And I went way over our gift limit. We agreed not to spend anymore than $50 USD on each others gifts, no matter what the occasion. But she had been wanting one for awhile so I said what the hell. Now, as it looms closer to Father's I'm curious if she'll hang the $50 rule or not.

    I'm starting a new job, so my wifey is waiting for requests once I figure out what I need to add to my work EDC.

    It's not an EDC item but I did receive my Father's Day gift early; a new kayak. My older kayak will become my 11 year old son's kayak. I am taking the new one out this morning on one of the local rivers to do some fly fishing. :woohoo:

    I requested a power inverter for the car. I'll probably get a tie. :brickwall:

    I asked for a box of 45 ACP ammo. My daughter just shook her head, and walked away. I'll probably get another shirt.

    Kinda reaching for the stars there, arent you?

    When you take in to consideration that there isn't a single round to be found anywhere in America.

    Hope it's a nice shirt though.

    I'm making an Altoids kit for my father; from my memory, it has:

    cut down note cards
    chapstick
    gum
    pencil
    pencil sharpener
    Gerber Artifact (plus replacement blades)
    two rubber bands (to keep the tin closed)

    I believe that's all. Overall, I'm feeling meh about it... I don't know if I'm going to change it up. :/

    Actually I did find something to ask for since my work EDC is mostly done. The local tactical nylon store has Gen IV MOLLE frames from a contractor for a great price. That would go really nicely with my TacTailor-modded large ALICE pack. :)
