I love going to Brooks Brothers. Its like stepping back into a different world, especially in Northern California where people wear fleece out to dinner. There is soft music, pens in silver juelp cups. I can get hankies, bow ties collar points, knot cuff links and so on. Anyway I went today in search of a special gift. My oldest son A will be 10 on January 25. Don't get me started on how could he be that old. No longer a little boy but a young man. A very young man to be sure but still. I purchased a copy of the book "50 Things a Young Gentleman Shuold Know". I love those books. Back when my daughter was born my mother gave me a copy of the book "How to Raise a Lady". This one is really just common sense but I thought it was cute and very appropriate.
