I have always wanted one of their handcoolers -- the only thing I could come close to affording (@$250). Handcoolers are tiny, so I assume your owl was a pretty generous gift even then.

Yes, very. And way over the amount the company allowed. But I thought it was so nice that the man kept it for several years and then sent it to Mom. Dad had bought another Steuben piece for her (a much, much more expensive limited edition piece) so my brother and his wife have that, and I have the owl.

When we were clearing out Mom's apartment my sister set a rule, "You bought it, you get it." Meaning that if it was something we'd given Mom as a present, we had to take it if no one else wanted it.
