I get the hint

Let’s play a little detective game. I got the hint, but can you?

On Christmas morning I opened a gift from my mother and it was a book entitled A thousand and one household hints. Immediately after opening this gift, Jim handed me a gift from him and to my "delight," it was an encyclopedia type book called Home Comforts: the art and science of keeping house.

The way I look at it, you will always feel like you can relax at our house, you won’t mind putting your feet on the coffee table or leaving a dirty mug on the counter.
