    Default The things we do for family...

    Went to Barney's in Vegas today to get some last minute gifts for my parents, went in with a specific budget hoping I might have enough left over for a bottle of Avignon. After lots of sampling I selected Vetiver Extraordinaire for the old man and Hippie Rose by Heeley for my mom. And had to walk out sans Avignon!

    They better like them!

    Well chosen - your parents are lucky! And well done for sticking to your budget.

    Great choices. They are truly lucky to have a son with exquisite fragrance tastes.

    'Tis better to give than to give than to receive, especially at this time of year. Avignon will still be there for you once your finances recuperate. Good on ya.

    Amen, I hope they like them. I got a sample of the vetiver for the old man to try before he cracks the bottle. So if he doesn't dig it we can go exchange it for something else.

    Got to love good karma, under the tree sat a Barneys gift cert for yours truly, now I get to agonize what to use it on.
