Dinosaurs & Eight Year Olds

My nephew had the serious misfortune to be born in December.

But luckily for him, he has the best aunt in the whole wide world.

 An aunt who can smell an estate sale from miles away.
 Who was having trouble thinking of a cool eight-year-old gift when she spied 
a gazillion dinosaurs.

The unfortunate nephew has some very cool items on his wish list. 
Which the aunty wanted to get but the poor aunt knew in a few short days, 
she would also have to spring for a Christmas present as well.

 So the aunt, now cool, went home with her gazillion dinosaurs and amazingly, FOUND, the dinosaur curtains she had sewed for her own son when he was eight.
 In a matter of moments, utilizing the rod pocket for the drawstring and her brand new serger and some lanyards lying around, she had made a bag worthy of those gazillion dinosaurs.
 Happy Birthday Eric!
