My grandmother used to stow our presents in our basement. She lived across the street in a very small house, and she would give us about a million presents, so this was her "hiding" place.

Well, just off of that room in the basement was also our rec~room and my dad's workshop. So, us kids were always meandering in and out of everywhere.

Sometimes we'd find things that we weren't supposed to, and hasty parental explanations were made: Santa forgot to wrap that!

But there was sooooo much junk in that basement that all kind of stuff got lost. It was kind of like King Tut's Tomb! Year after year, we would find presents that had been forgotten and never wrapped.

It was always a crack up when my sister and I found some odd item and realized that Grandma had forgot to give it to us some many Christmases ago!

But, hey, I'm not at all ragging on my Grandma. She was the coolest lady ever...and usually gave the greatest gifts ever. (Well...except the year she gave everybody a multi~pak of multi~colored knee-hi's!)

You can just make it like Easter and have them hunt for their presents.

I agree 100% with you regarding Senator Nelson of Nebraska. "I'm cussing" dirtbag.

Also, I wouldn't take that ten to one bet. I'm a boy dog and I know how it goes. That's why I have the Juju Woman...except she has a problem with her car keys.

Hi, Bou. Knowing my "early oldtimers' disease" is no lon ger... early, I solved both the hiding and the finding of Christmas presents for the children the easiest way possible: Xmas present for Lovely Daughter and fiance: I installed flooring throughout their house; Xmas present for Son&Heir: built and furbished a SUBSTANTIAL platform bed for him.

They both have their presents, now, right where THEY can locate them. *heh*

As the boys get older, you'll be able to compensate for "hidden memory holes" in much the same way. :-)

Merry Christmas.
