Unusual. I enjoyed the originality of this short story. A thought-provoking and amusing read. I will never look at a vegetable patch - or flat leafed parsley - the same way again.

The Trump Presidential Wall Game - MAGA
The Trump Presidential Wall Game - MAGA
This is a genuinely great game. Whether you love or despise Trump, it's hilarious, and it's a wonderful multi-generation game, since it doesn't require a knowledge base. My kids (youngest is 6) play their parents and grandparents, and the winner is always a surprise.

The only negative about the game is that the box is really designed for presentation, so the frame must be dismantled each time it's reboxed. Also, the hole (from the Trump display window) in the front means bricks occasionally fall out. A couple of replacement bricks would have been nice. I fear we might lose some.

This is regularly the game of choice when my little one chooses, and it's still funny every time "Trumpty Dumpty" falls.

I bought at full price, but I think the Amazon discounted price is more appropriate. I was willing to pay the extra $10 for the laugh factor, but that's just because I was at a loss for gift ideas.
Quotations of Henry Ford (Quotations of Great Americans)
Quotations of Henry Ford (Quotations of Great Americans)
Henry Ford has been quoted many, many times, and not for nothing: a true entrepreneur and over-achiever, we quite probably owe best part of the modern, industrialized world to his genius.

What impresses me the most, though, is his indomitable spirit:
"Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't: you're right!"
You might have heard this before, possibly without realizing it came from Henry Ford.

Another one I particularly like:
"We're looking for men with the infinite capacity to NOT KNOW what is impossible."

These quotes are para-phrased, but you get the idea.

The book is small and pretty; it makes a perfect gift to a relative for Christmas, New Year's, Birthdays or at any other time.

I for one am glad I bought it!
