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'...

Crimpie, I'll get one up. It won't go over well right now with recent news events...

And, my wife hid it from my son. He saw it when I opened it up and wanted to try it out. We did, but then it got hidden.

Kid safe, mostly. Just under Dad's/Mom's supervision.

I'm sure you can guess. I'll take some pics.

I look forward to seeing your prize Bluey. Hope you like it, but understand your reservations.

Lynne - let's see!

I sent out my gift earlier this week (well, had it sent out). I struggle to find something extra-special for my extra-special giftee. I thought long and hard - hope he/she digs it. :)

I admit to being like a little kid and hoping mine comes soon! :)

Secret Santa paid me a visit today, and since I am the type who used to scour the house to find my gifts as a child, I just had to open it....

Neebee, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful painting and dreamcatcher!!
It's funny too, because the photo you used, I didn't even remember posting. I took that a few years ago on one of the first trips to Joshua tree with my wife. It was one of those really cold and windy days, and it seemed like we had the entire park to ourselves. Seeing the painting brought back wonderful memories from a really great time in our lives.

The dreamcatcher is also wonderfully timely. I used to have one over my bed that I got many years ago. I had it at each place I've lived, which is many, and unfortunately lost it in the last move. A few years ago we had to move back in with my parents, and are still here. I've put off on decorating our room, because I didn't want to feel to "permanent" here. When I was looking at your beautiful dreamcatcher you made, I looked up, and the screw in the wall from my old one was still there. No installation needed.

Thank you again for the lovely art, they will both hang proudly in our room, and I will cherish them every day I see them.
