Remember a few weeks ago, when I related how I found that great bargain on the priceless memento of our President?
How I sent it to a friend of mine as a gift and how he responded?
Thank you so much for the Milton Bradley Commemorative Barack Obama “Yes We Can!” puzzle. I’m at a loss for how to show my most heartfelt appreciation. Email won’t come close. A proper response requires pen and ink on paper. Honestly though, I fear that alone will surely fall short as well. I’ll put serious thought toward how one might properly reciprocate such a thoughtful and beautiful gift from as dear a friend as yourself.
Well, his response came today.
I must admit that I’m a bit torn. Do I leave it in the packaging, helping to retain it’s obvious collector value and to pass down to my children and grand-children as a cherished heirloom? Or do I open it so that I can grow and enjoy it as it was intended?
Anyone ever had one before? How long do the plants live? If I’ll only be able to enjoy it for a couple of weeks or so, It’s not worth ruining the collector value.
What say my faithful readers?
