I enlisted Suzy to model some of my Christmas Gifts -
The lovely table runner made by my travel partner, Kay;
The tee shirt that says Be Careful or you'll end up in my Novel, from my oldest, uh my Firstest Sister of Choice, Val and her husband, Bob;
A green knit scarf with a special wool from France with colored specks in it - very soft! - made by my friend, Weld (it's from Weld and his wife Elma - along with some goat's milk soap and a Pecan Log from the Sweet Shoppe in Bandon);
A set of mother of pearl earrings and matching necklace, a beaded blue jewelry/coin purse and lovely lavender silk scarf from my SOC n BOC;
nice bath stuff from my Ol' Same;
the opera, La Fille du Regiment, from my ex-Boss, Karen;
My nook, from me to me;
A gift certificate to Barnes & Noble from my good friends Jan and Lori;
And, you will notice, one of two remotes (being 'held' in Suzy's right hand) for my new Wii from Luke, Sonja, and Aaron.
Alas, i don't have a photo of the Goat my SOC, Kay, donated in my name (darn, I wish I did!)
An embarrassment of riches, plus several small things that have already disappeared - or at least changed form - like homemade cookies (now worn with pride on my sit-down-upon;-), nuts, etc.
All my friends and family, near and far, known and not yet met!
