What's an appropriate amount to give for wedding gifts these days? I heard you should give at least the amount it costs for them to serve you and your spouse at the reception. Help!

Agreement here big time, give what you can afford. People don't appreciate anything anyhow most of the time. Be sure to remember those ingrates that never thanked you for their wedding gift even after you mentioned it, WHEN they send you a birth announcement....just ignore them then... [Razz] [Big Grin]

Chatty,
You bet on that one . They always look for something when that baby comes. What baby! Ha! I asked my husbands cousin if they like the nice ice cream maker we sent to so and so and his new wife and in the christmas card she said that so and so like the ice cream maker , so where is my thank you note.

Apparently no one taught them any manners. [Mad]

Lookie here Miss Queenie, Christmas is only over for last year. I'm telling the old fat guy to boycott your house til you turn into one man loooving romantic fool.
And as we all know, that may be one heck of a long time.

P.S. Oh yeah, I'm telling the Easter Bunny too. He's not bringing you even one chocolate Easter egg. No oreos either!!!

That oughtta' get your attention!!

You all are too much. I have been aching all over like a tooth ache for a week. Now you have made me laugh and I ache some more . You would think I had the Flu. I think it is stress so now I take care of me . Someone suggested that and good idea. I am resting this week from Christmas and my Temp Job last week ,before they call me again.

What wonderful friends. Lv, Nancy

I know the queen hasn't been in here. We'll know it when she gets around to reading these posts.

Nancy, feel better.
