Greatest Wife, Coolest Gift

Father’s day came early (she couldn’t wait), my wife presented me with a giant color book containing mostly everything I have photographed since joining the forum last summer. It is 87 pages of egg-grub. For weeks, she snuck around & cut, copied & pasted all of this somehow without me knowing, I was blown away. The book was made on Shutterfly, all my pictures are on Photobucket, so she actually went through the hard drive to copy the pictures, then dredged through the forum to find all of my posts so she could put the names in the book, which wouldn’t be an issue if I just called stuff what it was :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Here is a photo of the cover & I pasted the link below so you can actually scroll through the book if interested:

  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,347
    no question, and I might add that this is very typical of her, thoughtful beyond the call of duty
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,347
    Wess, if you saw this thing in person you wouldn't believe it, the time she put in to organize the photos in groups, different layouts on each page, just unbelievable. And yes, I am a pig by comparison :laugh:

    Wow that is really sweet! It also really shows your knack for putting anything on a pizza crust.

    Layout is incredible. Has to be one of the best gifts I've seen hands down.

    Hey Marc I haven't checked the link yet but if the book is about your cooks is it safe to assume it's science fiction :whistle: :P . You are a lucky guy, thats a great gift.

    She got in late Thursday so I got my South Philly pretzel fix :woohoo: :woohoo: I keep trying but just can't quite get the dough right.
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,347
    Thanks Ross, I did notice however that the book is light on cheeseburgers, after seeing all the ones you've been making lately, I decided that cheeseburgers will rule the day for Father's Day tomorrow, so I shall pull out the grinder attachment & get busy ;)

    Nice album, Zip. Your wife must have put a lot of time into that. A keepsake.
  • HungryManHungryMan Posts: 3,470
    That is cool. If anyone asks about an egg, that's the Torah of egging.
  • BraddogBraddog Posts: 212
