Here in Japan Christmas is a Tuesday, which is a regular work day for us and most everyone, so we are celebrating Christmas tomorrow, Sunday. This is the first Christmas in 18 years that we will not have any kids at home for Christmas. Our friend Neil and his family have invited us to their home for Christmas dinner, they live just ups the road, we did this last year and we had a great time. Neil and his wife have three boys aged 10 to 5 so it is a lot of fun with the kids there. Last night I realized that we did not have any gifts for the boys, well that would not do, so I tried to think of something fun that they would not get anywhere else......
Yep.... pop guns!
My wife is worried that they will hurt each other with them, as they "shoot" corks, I told her that they are boys, and if you put them buck naked on a pillow the size of a football field they would find a way to bash each other with something they are boys after all
In this day of X-box etc I wonder how this old time toy will go over?
