I thought I would take a break from writing about the wedding to write a post about my Christmas present from Rick. Christmas Day night after all the company had left and it was down to the boys and us, we opened our family presents. At this time I received my annual poem from Rick. I knew immediately that it was some kind of riding toy or vehicle, I just did not know what kind. I had to find the clue that ended up in the inside of one of my Christmas trees. After much searching, I did find the picture - a 1947 Willys jeep.
( Another Project - Happy Birthday, Daddy) I had made comments throughout the year about the jeep, but I knew Rick was not too excited about fixing it up. So he bought me one ready to go - almost. I was thrilled with my present.
