    Default Meaningful birthday presents!

    Just enjoyed my 57th birthday a couple of weeks back and my second daughter has been around to give me her birthday present. A BEER CAN CRUSHER She knows me so well !!!!!!!!!!!! Gone now are the days of stamping on the recycle bin to get the lid down so the neighbours don't talk
