Probably the most unusual gift I ever received was from my mother who used to knit gorgeous wool cabled sweaters. She was a true seamstress even once making a duplicate of an horrendously expensive wedding gown as a friend's wedding present.

Until I was an adult I never had to buy a sweater and boy were they heavy and warm. Then one Christmas several years before her death, I received a sweater that was extremely heavy. I put it on and both Fran and I died laughing - we absolutely couldn't stop. I'm a big guy but this thing would have fit King Kong and I'm not kidding! The waist was down around my ankles and I kid you not, the sleeves dragged the ground and I'm over 6'4"! Guess she got a little carried away.
