The unhappy news is that living with them water rats has burned out his smeller.
Good news/Bad news kinda thing regards
IMO - giving something at Santa time to someone like the birdboys reeks of a selfish action though laudable that the recipient is someone who can use it. How many of you increase the tip at Xmas or add something extra for the tradespeople who wait on you all year. Or give to the truly needy with a donation to some worthwhile charity.
I can remember recently taking our son's family to dinner at a mid scale restaurant to celebrate 2 B-days. When the bill came I paid + a healthy tip, both in cash - the waitress came back & inquired if I had done that intentionally or had made a mistake. When I told her it was intentional she stated "I wish all the folks who ate here felt like you".
I don't know about most of you but I was there at one time, it's nice to feel that someone recognizes your effort, even verbally.
A bottle or two of Ken Bora's syrup makes an excellent gift.
I think Kens syrup, food and booze are great gifts for friends or customers.
But I also think that CASH is the gift of choice for assistants and bird boys.
They may need the money to make it to family for the holiday, buy groceries, gifts etc.
No matter what you do, Do something!!!

I took care of my Pro's assistant this past Wednesday when I was down working with him and my pup. The last 4-5 years I've done something for Thanksgiving and Christmas for his assistant.
