    And he said: "Son, this world is rough
    And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough
    And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along.
    So I give ya that name and I said goodbye
    I knew you'd have to get tough or die
    And it's the name that helped to make you strong."

    Lot's of John Deere toys. (and, of course, an "Animal House" DVD).


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    Re: "Must Have" for boys growing up??

    Lincoln Logs
    Legos
    Any type of large construction vehicle toy

    Most importantly, buy them YOUR TIME. When it comes to family, money is time, not the other way around.

    Good luck!

    Re: "Must Have" for boys growing up??

    We bought this book for our god sons.

    The Dangerous Book for Boys | Conn Iggulden, Hal Iggulden

    It is a pretty cool information/activity book. The name covers the fact that some of the projects would be considered dangerous in our PC world (making a bow and arrow for instance) but overall it is the sort of stuff most of us that are 40+ did when we were growing up.
