Oops I almost forgot the birthday gift of my friend's smart young boy. His birthday was on January 30 and it went past my mind. Oh my, I must be registering the symptoms of being old. Well, it is really like that, I am not getting any younger anymore. But, wait before I forget again about the birthday gift, I looked up in the net and found the schleich model educational toys to be perfect birthday gifts. I know it is late but I have to give that little lad a gift. It is better late than never.
