ready for purim

At a lousy toy store in the mall. I walked into the middle of an argument with a lot of people yelling about how the store doesn't take returns. I didn't much care whether they took returns or not. I just wanted to make sure that they didn't have what I needed just so that I wouldn't feel like maybe they did.

There, on the shelf, in between the crappy felt cowboy hats and the chinaman hats, were genuine, straw cowboy hats. They all said Dale Earnhart on them and they had a colored rim but I bought 3 of them anyways.
I don't know where my cowboy hat went from last year, but it would have been a sad purim without a cowboy hat.
Now we have an alomost complete Purim. The folks are coming (kinda oleh regel) and they are probably bringing wild turkey with them. Not only that wild turkey who we will also enjoy seeing, but also the beverage.

Now all we have to do is prepare our shalach manos, write our poem, listen to megilla and give money to poor folks. It is looking like a fun time will be had by all.

As I mentioned, I don't know where it is, but my wife, God bless her, thinks it got lost or destroyes in the move.
