  1. Thank you for all your inspiring ideas! I didn’t know what to do for the many men in my life before this. You have relieves so much stress! Thank you thank you!

  2. Have you read the Tattooist of Auschwitz? I haven’t…but it was recommended. I tend to like similar books as the ones you post – so just wondering 🙂

  3. I love all your ideas and always check here first before shopping for my husband and sons. When I follow the link to the water resistant flashlight, amazon takes me to a multi-pack of keychain flashlights. I wanted to buy the one you recommended but it didn’t take me there.
