hey there say, melissa ,that is a neat way of seeing it...

sharing for the twelve days...

well, they COULD share a picture of the unopened box, if they like, too...

some of us did that, last year, that is fun too... and for the ones
that DID open, that was equally as fun....

dear seamstress... i just been reading about the 'bad' day :(
i am behind in the news...

find a quiet space when the memories of your conn. homeland feel well and then you will know it is time to open it... like a sign of prayers having moved over to the families of those in pain...

WELL now... me, i had been up all night doing little chores, i seem to work better then:

i JUST mailed my box off to the secret-santa-getter'er...
i can't pay much, so it went the SEVEN day way... it should get
there in time, though, i hope.. at least if it
gets 'slowed up'..

i WILL be able to say (and perhaps with a few others) not to worry
there are still some on the way, and MINE is one, :))

happy trails, in this venture before us all, from strider... :)
thank you strider...

hey there say, lolli, i just love this

as to your quote:

I love the internet. It's fantastic.
Without it, I would've never known of neither Secret Santa, nor any of you! There'd be no Supertopo.
In the old days, I could've called the post office to find out where my box is, but there'd be no recepient across the sea. :-)

I am the lucky giftee of Santa Skully. In addition to a space blanket I received 'wild' by Cheryl Strayed, a memoir of a woman's journey on the PCT.

The book is ending too soon. It will not last until christmas.
Thank you Skully!

Right on. I was hoping it was good. She's got a great name for hiking, huh? The space blanket was just in case it wasn't that great. Plus it's a great item to have on a long route.
I hope you have a great Solstice and Next year's even better.
So there!;-)

My helper elf has been a bit overworked as of late, but fear not, mine should be in be mail in a few days, and seeing as it only has to go a few counties over, should arrive by Christmas....

Hope the holidaze are treating you a well...

Nose pano from Mark Hudon... thanks, Santa! Installed next to the woody for motivation... and with some Big Wall Theory gadgetry to keep it company.

Merry Christmas!

I thought that i would throw this out there again.

Last year quite few people gave money to buy Strider a gift.
Some people sent a little, and some a lot. We collected quite a bit, and I believe we gave him a rope, one or two books, and a Dream Catcher.
The gift suggestions and money were sent to me, and then I ordered the stuff, and sent it to Strider.
I would like to do this again this year.

I have had a few people respond, but not enough to buy Strider that timeshare in Hawaii.
Please contact me off site if interested

hey there say, zip...

i never have more than a few bucks in the bank after normal bills, food and critters stuff, and my ol' quarter-tank fill, so i can't really send funds as they are unpredictable, though i DO get surprise babysitting time and thus, i CAN send SMALL gifts, etc, as i balance and plan, and on occasions, beg postage, :))...

sooo, though:
i can at least send him a neat surprise, :)
and i have a few ideas... but--will be for the new year,

it's kind of like including a big brother, :)
as he sets this up for 'the ol' taco family'...
