What do you buy for the person who has everything, or in my case, for the person who has nothing and wants nothing?

I jokingly say I have nothing, but in truth, I have everything, especially my health. I just don’t own a whole lot of personal possessions and plan to keep it that way. As a wise person once said, “To have more, want less.”

We literally and figuratively cleaned house when we moved into our two bedroom apartment three years ago. We got rid of 90% of our worldly possessions. Of the few things remaining that we kept was the toolbox. It was a mystery why we bought one in the first place when we became homeowners.  Neither one of us are particularly handy wielding a hammer. It is an even greater mystery why we kept it as apartment dwellers. Seriously, I don’t think any of the cable outlets wants us to replace Mike Holmes.

So are you looking for a unique gift? It could be to commemorate a birth or a death. It might be for a wedding (or a divorce)! I can already hear Loretta Lynn crooning D.I.V.O.R.C.E! It might be for a job promotion or an impending retirement. “Take This Job and Shove It” might be appropriate. Graduation, birthdays, special birthdays (“When I’m 64 ‘). Christmas. Easter. Thanksgiving. You get my drift. It could be for just about any occasion or life event.

I still remember getting some rather dirty looks from my wife early in our marriage for the wooden spoons and measuring cups I bought one Christmas.

Would you like to create some lasting memories?

YUMM is the answer to your prayers. Pete and I are thinking of launching a new music video service this fall. You simply send us the name of the recipient and the life event. You include in your message a song that the recipient might enjoy and we’ll create short musical video using parts of the song. (1-1:30 minutes). We’ll send you the clip from our YouTube channel and you can share it as you see fit. We’ll charge you $50. Your friends will love it.

So. What do you think? I’m looking for some feedback. I sent it to a few of my loyal readers to do a test drive and we have our first order booked.

And how, you ask, did we come up with the incredibly clever acronym? Well, that’s for you to figure out. If you can tell me what YUMM stands for, I’ll give you a copy of my three books. If you already have them, you can wait and I’ll give you one of the first copies of my India book due out late in the fall.

Have a great holiday weekend and stay safe.
