hey there, say, Yury... well, kind of, :)


i usually send out an email, explaining it all, but,
i don't think we can get mail here...

so, i have to 'give some of the surprise away'

BASICALLY:

i am a 'catalogue' of TWELVE gifts that get sent out to someone...
(i just go by a gut-feeling, who to pick, each year) ...
EVERYONE is special, of course, but i can only do one person
a year, :)


i need ONLY for you all to a 'gift giver name'...

and i will post a list of gifts...

you will JUST PICK which gift you want to give, to the 'mystery person'
(i DO WANT you to know who they are, but-- i need to find a way to email
you all, and can't just post my email on line, here, as many of you can't)


so, you may not even KNOW this year, WHO this is for, until afterwards...
:(


they all go into a box--
i will pay to send it...
and will write a poem...

they will open one gift per day, for 12 days,
:)


made to the 12 days of christmas poem, that will match the gifts...
(as a CLUE, before the person opens the numbered gift)

*nope, no lords a leeping, :))



so far, i have:

me,
mouse,
sue lacey,
and johntp,

(nita? might join in, after i email her, :)

so, THAT is five, so far... :)



let me know, Gary, and Yury, and anyone else,
if you want to be part of a surprise,
to make someone feel special...

we will SHARE, after the holiday, HOW IT WENT...

:)

hey there, say, WOWOWOWOWOWOWO... (OOOPS, i now sound like a puppy-dog) ...


:))


wow, guys, thank you... okay, lets see what we got, now...

(got a few i can email, too, that i did not get hold of last night...)


OKAY--- great, we go NINE, now... :)


after i get the poem done, and the list of gifts...
then you all CAN PICK... etc...
(as you, you know, your gut feeling, your personality, etc,
or, the types of gifts you prefer to give... most will
on the small, light side, so they will mail in the one big box) ...

:)


*just so you know how this started... i was listening to the
12 days of christmas song, one ever, as i was brushing my hair
in the mirror... and, i 'reflected' on it, as, WOULDN'T
IT BE NICE:

IF this could be transferred into a 'NEW SONG' (poem)
that would brighten someones day, during the
'commercialized busy season' and perhaps LAST ALL year long,
as to friendship, :)


wow, we could NOT DO THIS, without each other...
we are a wonderful, warm, and versatile, and--
colorful 'quilt of characters', that can:
ACTUALLY DO GOOD, around this ol' world... :)

you are the best!!!
