Yet Another Mothers Day Post

Happy Mothers Day Everyone!

I have a great Mom. All of us kids are going in on some speakers for her. She turns 71 this year and while you might be thinking speakers may not be such a good gift for a 70 year old they really will be...let me explain.
Back when the super bowl was about to be played home and garden backyard sister plunked down $25.00 for a single square in a SB pot that only paid for the final score. Someone she knew started it to give away a new 42" plasma TV. So Mom finds out about and wants in on the action and my sister buys her a square.
You guessed it....Mom won the TV....but stay with me here it gets better.
But before I go there let me just say that it was the most valuable thing she had ever won in her entire life and she could not have won a better prize. Being 70 she spends a lot of time watching TV and had she won cash she would have never went out and bought a 42' plasma.
So TV arrives and crew goes to install it. They unpack it and not only did it not come with cables, a simple base to stand it up right but it wouldn't fit in her entertainment center. So mom goes shopping for a new entertainment center, sister orders the stand on-line and her husband picks up some plasma TV cables.
New entrainment center $950.00, stand was $195.00 and cables were $100.00.
Everything comes in and crew goes back out to set it all up....picture looks nice....but wait...somethings sound! There were no internal speakers in the damn thing!
So they rigged it to her micro stereo speakers just to give her sound so she could watch the TV and we all pitched in and ordered her the speakers ($200.00)that attach to both sides of the plasma for her Mothers Day gift.
I still think it was the greatest thing she could have won and starting today she will be able to finally enjoy the full benefit of it.

My ("why don't you get me a square hun") Mom....she the best!

What Seriously said (tired of him taking my lines).

Sounds like the most thoughtful and valuable gift you could have come up with.
