As some of you know, my birthday was earlier this week. As I get older, my b-days don’t bother me near as much as my kids’ birthdays. The upside to getting melancholy on their days is that I really enjoy mine. I love cake and cards and hearing from friends. And I love seeing what presents my family picked out for me.
My absolutely favorite thing to get from my kids is their handmade cards. I kind of hope that even when they’re older, and have families of their own, that they still make my cards (I can dream, right?).
This year I was lucky enough to receive a few nice gifts from my family, but one really stands out—and shows just how well they know me.
I got this:
Seasons 1 & 2 of Quincy M.E.! And if you don’t already know why this is so meaningful to me (because I tell the story often enough) you can read all about it here: http://www.thelittleblogofmurder.com/2006/03/06/calling-jack-klugman/
I can’t wait to start watching these old episodes—and getting my kids hooked on Quincy, too. Maybe one day it’ll be a reference in one of their cards...
So tell me, what’s the DVD set you’d like to receive as a gift?
