I hope she got a gift receipt

Attention: Will the adults at the Obama White House please report for duty?

Dude visits from the UK and brings for housewarming gifts ...
  • An ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of HMS Gannet. [1]
  • A framed commission for HMS Resolute.
  • First edition of a seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.
  • Clothes and not-yet-available on this side of the Atlantic books for the kids.

And in return?

It's like the Browns blew in from out of town unexpectedly and the Missus, while she was at Wal-Mart picking up steaks and potatoes, zipped over to Electronics for last-minute no-thought gifts.

Movies, she thought, everyone likes to plonk their butt down and watch movies.

[1] I'm wondering if they keep stuff like that in a back room, for just in case?
