Call me a hopeless romantic...


Dee drives a 2004 Land Rover Discovery II. We purchased it in the summer of 2004 and got a great deal on it because the car was a demo for the local Land Rover dealership. This is Dee's second Discovery II as she just plain loves the vehicle. 2004 was the last year that the Discovery II was made, so Dee was happy with her first one. The tires on her car were the original tires that came with the car, and they were in need of replacing. This fact was brought to light last Friday when Dee discovered that one of the tires had gone flat (of course, I was out of town and could be no help!). Dee called AAA to replace the flat and as soon as that was done, she went to see our friends at Ronda Tire. Tim Ronda looked at the tire and determined that it was beyond repair. So what does a loving husband do for his bride as a Christmas gift to ensure her safety when she drives to and from work? He buys her a new set Yokohama Geolandar H/T s tires. Joyeux Noel, Deirdre!

I can relate...this year Sweetie Pie wants me to pay for her Mercedes tune up as a Christmas present...practical, sensible, and she actually wants that.

Almost as good as the new garage door I got an old girlfriend for Xmas several years ago

I've given up trying to surprise them...usually doesn't end well...

Hopeless romantic, humbug. If you really loved her, you'd give a chainsaw or her own leaf blower.

This it could be HIS and HERS :-)

Your romantic cup runneth over, Commander. Really, though, she's a sensible gal, and will truly appreciate the sentiment. By gosh, she needs to get back and forth to work everyday so you can keep dishing up delicious dinners every night. I'm waiting for her to post pictures of them on her blog.

Henry,

There will be NO his/hers chainsaws. Don't encourage him.

Yup, I love those tires - wow, how could a girl BE so lucky??

Henry, that is an interesting idea, but have you ever seen Deirdre actually operating a chainsaw? Not in my lifetime, I can assure you!
