It is just two days until we celebrate Christmas. Juergen came to me asking what he should get me for a gift. I know if I said surprise me I would be getting another house plant and candles. Gift giving has never been a strength of Juergens. On the other hand he is a very generous person. And to be fair, it is VERY hard to find a gift for someone who already has everything. And I can hardly think of anything for myself or him. I have so much. But I ask for unusual things like compost for my garden, car seat covers, and a new lawnmower. And he wants a new juicer to make orange juice on Christmas morning. He actually wants new speakers for his electric guitar, but I would not dare to buy them. I’ll just give him the money. That is something he needs to get for himself. The best thing Juergen gives me is his time. I am giving him a book, and he has to read it to me. We do this every year. It is a great tradition. I highly recommend it.
