I love birthdays. Mine, especially. My birthday is a great excuse for buying things. So I use it for the entire month of June.
My latest birthday present to myself is this gardening gadget:
I got it because I take a perverse pleasure in ripping weeds out of the garden by their roots. But bending over to do that is really hard on my back. The advertising for this device claims that when I use it, I can yank weeds to my hearts content without bending.
After if finally stops raining, I'll give it a test drive.
