Choctaw Jack Posted December 23, 2020 Share Posted December 23, 2020 Linn, When I was in high school my step Dad,my brother, and I pulled about the same trick on my Mom.We all chipped in on a very nice diamond watch.We taped the wrapped watch to the underside of a large (about the size of big microwave ) box.Threw in a few well gnawed bones donated by the dog, some gravel and under the tree it went. My mother was a world class present shaker,and it about drove her crazy.Got shaken well several times a day until Chrismas morning. It was the first package opened that day,and she promptly ripped the wrapping off,and without looking at it,threw the top in the merrily blazing fireplace. I wouldn't have thought all three of us could fit into that firebox,but we managed to rescue the watch with no serious damage. Choctaw Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
