Well, I have already secured the best Christmas gift I'm going to get this year. My Mother-in-law called me aside and told me that Santa had a special gift for me. I opened a small package and out comes a John Deere cap. I am thrilled. Then she tells me that over the summer she had purchased a new Deere tractor for her property in PEI. That is when I noticed the "owner's edition" embroidery on the side! As most of you undoubtedly know, these hats are not for sale. The only way to get one is to buy a new Deere tractor. She's been saving it for me since the summer. How cool is that? I own a number of Deeres but I may never own a new one.

That was really cool of her. She could have done anything with it or kept it for herself.

Sounds like a very nice MIL!

Yeah, she still isn't too fond of my collection of Mother-in-law jokes! :hitting_self_roller:

Nice of her to give that to you.. She could have asked for a pink one and kept it.
