New toilet seat in pink and purple flowers.
Jockeyshorts with slogans which puzzle for hours.
Teeshirt printed with “McCartney Farewell Tour 2038”,
Because for me it may well be too late.
Title deeds to twin plots in a prestigious cemetery,
With 15% off on marble headstones when they bury.
Large framed picture of mother-in-law  herself,
Designed to fit perfectly over the den bar shelf.

    lol.....I love this, Sidney. My former mother-in-law did actually give us one Christmas a framed photograph of herself. Every time she visited, we took it out of the drawer and hung it up.... Well, even the Mona Lisa started out it's life by being displayed in the Sun King's bathroom. :-)
