Solving the Birthday Gift Dilemma…and Shopping Locally

Who you gonna call?

What to buy the 60 something husband who has everything – if he needs it, he buys it; if he wants it, he buys it; if it’s a boy hobby toy, he buys it.

Add to that dilemma:  how to shop locally and support local businesspeople?

A brilliant flash of the obvious…When the favorite boy toy is a John Deere, the favorite pastime is working on a road through the backyard woods, why not call the “Dirt Busters” — the Cromwell Brothers — for a load of bank run gravel.  With the gravel, a man has a reason to run his John Deere and something to move. Duh.

So, the perfect boy birthday present arrived by dump truck special delivery.  Thank you Dennis and Gary Cromwell.  A bit of a wrapping challenge, but not insurmountable.
