Turning 40

I'm almost there myself. I always love what I call the gift pack. If he likes to fish get a minnow bucket (new) and fill with all kinds of goodies but since it is the 40 you could fill it with pain medication, ben-gay etc.

How about a chocolate cake with black icing, and a tombstone on it with a "happy 40th birthday" message? While probably too cheesey, it has the benefit of being edible, so you can get rid of the evidence...

Happy Birthday

How about a bubble gum machine? Many reproductions can be found.

Born in 1966, huh? Well, in 1966 it was the Summer of Love in San Francisco, if I remember correctly! Maybe some cool hippie garb ~ still can be found in the Haight.

How about a caricature sketch of your friend? Or some cool photoshop work on a classic picture of him?

Good luck! Have fun! Let us know what you do! (BTW I like the flamingos on the lawn.... ~ we gave our daughter a pair of flamingos when she got her Master's Degree) Hey, we need a flamingo smilie!

As a kid, I remember every Father's day getting Dad something he could use for the trailer. One year it was an electric hitch jack, another year those circular pads that attach to the BAL jacks and the next year a new BAL jack to replace the bent one that was left down while pulling out of the campsight. These items were purchased through the Wally Byam Stores from the Wally Byam catalogue. Note this was not an Airstream store or catalogue. I just checked my 1979 cataolgue where you could buy a 12" Sony color TV for $549.95 or even a bike rack for the rear bumper ( I always heard this is a big no - no, but advertised and shown in their catalogue) They even have a window ice scraper for all your winter camping trips. This probably goes along with the traction aids to "help you out of deep snow and icy holes". I came across the flag pole holder that was another years gift. Zip-Dee chairs for $33 and that aluminum jack pad for $6.39. You could buy duct tape and sewer fittings for pre 1964 units... ah.....1979. I really like my outdoor patio mat from Camping World - matches the awning.
