A partner’s birthday looms. Sinking feeling. What do I buy this time? Suggestions. Ask. Not impressed. Tells me to give a surprise. Cost? Gives me the price. I look up online. Good birthday presents. Some original ideas. Don’t think they would be appreciated. IDEA-ASK OTHERS. Someone suggests a brilliant idea which we used rarely. No present, just a local night away with buffet dinner and buffet breakfast included in the price. Research on-line- the place, availability, cost. Now check. No surprise as no sulks wanted on the special day. Birthday person loves the idea and is happy to go ahead! Two brains are better than one so don’t be afraid to ask someone!
Uhum, are they going away? We Great Danes don’t mind. As long as they leave us peanut butter filled bones. Who will wake us up? Ah, Peter in the place by our trees. We like him. He pats us through the fence.
