thrifted thursday #3

Today I have been married 11 years.
E  L  E  V  E  N   long and lovely years.

And I came across the perfect gift for him...although we don't generally do that type of thing.

For years I have suffered through the phrase "but I am a veteran of a foreign war" when I rejected his pleas for a sandwich to be made or sweet tea to be delivered to the couch.  So this fits.  It is the real deal too - no reproduction.  It is the enamel variety and probably weighs three pounds.

Hope he likes it...I know he will love the fact it was only a dollar.
