Patent 4,565,050


So I mentioned that my Dad is a cool inventor. Well, it really goes beyond that, he is so creative with all of his endeavors. When he and my mother were visiting for the holidays, I was reminded how he would wrap our Christmas presents in crazy ways. He would take the empty Leggs eggs and tape two down to a large piece of cardboard in the shape of two breasts. Then he would cover the whole thing with wrapping paper. He once wrapped a gold necklace for my mom in a CD case and asked me to help him create a "Solid Gold" Motown-like cover.

Stumbled/searched for his patent today. I think technically he should have more but doesn't like to do the paperwork. I was surprised that it was two years between filing and granting the patent.
