    This week we are attending a military retirement ceremony for a family friend. What would be a good gift for this occasion?

    I had a wonderful reply all written then I lost my internet connection.......ooops.

    My idea was more of a gag gift. If it's a man retiring, make him up some fun tags to match outfits in his closet. Most retired military don't know how to dress themselves well after wearing the same outfit for over 20 years!!!

    The retirement party was last night. Unfortunately, I wasn't up to doing any shopping. I finally settled on a boring old card and put $$$$ in it. We went but only stayed a little more than an hour. It was nice just getting out of the house.
