Not to worry, Secret Santa JoeyF! Santa's a busy dude and knows that a day-after arrival just extends the holiday spirit for some....


And that is the case in this situation! My Secret Santa gift arrived today and I saw it waiting as I came through the door this afternoon.... Yay!!!! I am not posting the ID of Santa, but if that Santa so wishes to make themselves known, it is good with me!

Here is the pretty tissue wrap chosen to protect the contents...(excuse the basket of fruit, which I photo'd next to in a compositional attempt at highlighting the holiday spirit)

And here is what Santa delivered!

What a wonderful, thoughtful Santa. The card is a pretty winter snow scene of the Golden Gate bridges, and reads:

Terrie,

Wishing you the wonders of the season.

I hope you like coffee, Goat Rock is a local crag on the Sonoma Coast. My brother made the DVD. I hope you enjoy!

Wishing you a Safe and Happy Season!




This is really a perfect gift for me. Yes, I do like coffee! I can't wait to try this one out - perhaps this afternoon during the time when my energy cycle drops. What a nice pick-me-up!

The DVD is called "Timeless... A National Parks Odyssey"

This I am going to savor! I have the feeling it is going to have me thinking about road tripos....since it includes information on some wonderful places - Arches, Banff, Canyonlands, Zion.... and that's just a selection of the ones included!




Thank You, Secret Santa!

I'd never seen it before, Crimpie, but it is bizarre! I kinda like it. It's weird, somewhat disturbing, but funny too!

It'll be my new climbing shirt. I'll have to alternate it with my lime-green Sabbath shirt.

Oh, and everybody miss-spells my name. Lots of people throw in that extra C. It's par for the course, I'm used to it.

Thanks!

At first I was confused (my normal state of mind) since the package arrived from an overseas address. Then I was pleased when I saw what it was and I put the product of root(2) and root(8) together and got four!

Secret Santa arrived AGAIN! Thanks so much. And I am sure Karl "B" B thanks you too.

Postin up my thanks to my Secret Soldotna Santa. Cool stuff! My feeble photo skillz do not do these prints justice; but they are awesome.

Any chance of sending them back for signing before I get them framed?

Here is one:
