Operation Gift Cards for Grammy '07!


Grammy is so appreciative when she gets gift cards for simple and practical things. Because we supply her with gift cards for Christmas, and throughout the year, she's able to buy things here and there that she wouldn't be able to buy otherwise.

I gave her a Kroger gift card a month or so ago and she was so excited! She said she could buy the "expensive" cucumber she wanted! I asked her what the expensive cucumber is and she said it cost a DOLLAR. She was genuienly excited that she could buy that dollar cucumber. It just about broke my heart!

She told me she would like the following practical gifts this year:

  • Kroger's Card
  • Gift Card for Her Beauty Shop
  • A Roll of Stamps

Gift Cards for the following restaurants:

  • Hacienda
  • Chili's
  • Olive Garden
  • Applebee's
  • Bob Evan's
  • Cracker Barrel
  • Pizza Hut
  • Fazoli's
  • Red Lobster
  • Steak & Shake
  • B&K Root Beer

Gift cards are kind'a OK, but, the thing is, some just won't let you get change no matter how lil the amount.

So, for some of my friends, if I give a gift card, it'll be a gift card from a bank.

You know.....
cash.

Ah....the PERSONAL touch.

Good idea Bo! Banks should issue gift cards for CASH!

Ryan and I will definitely get her a Kroger card. Probably a gift card for a restaurant too. I know how much it helps her.

I never go to lunch on Saturdays anymore. I don't know where they go. Probably Bob Evans, Hacienda, Red Lobster, Olive Garden....places like that.

Yeah, Bo..cash works! Stick in an envelope and you know it'll be put to use.

Hmmmm. Yeah, and I think they go to Pizza Hut too.

How about you other cousins where do you all go the most on Saturday's cause I don't go either?
Does anyone know where grammy banks at so I can call them and see if they do gift cards?

Email me with that info. I don't want it to get out to people that pray on the elderly. Or if you(cousins) know you could call and find out.
