All of you were so positive that Erik would enjoy or at least appear to enjoy the Christmas I wanted to give him so I wanted to at least let you know that I think he did and is still playing and I’m VERY pleased since I really didn’t know how a couple of the gifts really worked.
Along with an IPod Touch, a Garmin GPS, portable DVD player and a Darwin doll (I made that one), I got him : Genographic Project International Public Participation Kit For me this one has been fun so far. He had to take two swabbings at different times and they had to be at least an hour before or after eating. We got word as soon as these were received back and updates in the progress of the testing and I can’t wait to see where his earliest, dominant ancestor first began migrating and where the migration trail leads (well, obviously here HAHAHA!). I’m not sure which parent he selected (idiot me didn’t ask him) to follow.
I guess one of the things that interested me in this is that Erik’s dna is now part of a research project that will continue on as other people submit theirs and, well, I think that’s really cool!
About the only thing Erik did say was that I spent too much but I reminded him that first, if I could I would give him the moon and universe. and second, he has given me and many others this holiday for MANY years during which I and they could not reciprocate. Besides, it was grand fun for me! (I did remind him that all receipts were with each and he was welcome to return them if he wished).
