Old MAN





 What is all this? Well you see that man in the picture on the left? Not the man on the left, the man on the right. He turned 6-0 this past week! They had a big bash for Uncle Peter. Wish we could have been there! (and just so we get this straight the man on the left is NOT old! lol)


Here he is again... on the left. Oooo and look at the handsome guy in the suit!!! NO not the ugly one with the glasses... the one standing up filling his plate!!!










Okay so anyways what you see above is an old man survival kit packed into a box with a puzzle on it. To get what's inside you have to do the puzzle. (but don't worry we put the instructions inside!)

 Here is the tag:

THAT YOU MAY BE GETTING OLD 
THEY MAY STEP IN AND OPEN IT FOR YOU!

 Which they did- Stephanie got it open!

  1. no, I hate to disagree. (o.k. I love to disagree, but that is not the point.) The products where not free; it did cost you something. That something is a whole 2 cents. Not a great cost, but a cost never the less.
