My gift will be running late. Been down with the flu. To someone in the SoCal area that uses a PO box, you are not forgotten.

hey there say, .... wow!! just got the ol' secret santa gift!

wow, my first thought was to wait until 'christmas' 'til i realized,
(hee hee) that the eve, has come and gone, and i HAD shared it
with my critters... and a few phone calls...

and then, there was another box, that came in the afternoon and
so i thought i'd open that first-- and here they BOTH from
'secret santa' ...

well-- i loved it... oh my... very neat thing!
i love the 'behind the scenes' so to speak...

however, i promised to get next store, NOT late...

you will have to be in suspence, just a few hours...

thank you so very very much, secret santa!

wow--amazon, really DOES wrap things nicely... :)
it was fun! and will be enjoyed a lot...


can't wait to share, but-- i must... :)

be back soon!!!!!

...will post pictures later.

Apology about the mixed-up and confusion earlier. Haha First time participating and already causing a little bit drama. Oops.

Happy Holidays, all!

hey there say, ... wow, here it is... NO-- IT IS NOT A DOG... hee hee....

scroll down-- it is the BOOK, in the box... and a calendar...
am going to read it now, in between 'takes' ... (hee hee) ...
well, IN BETWEEN the various chores i am working on, at the table...

i love learning about little 'human things' that are natural to all of us,
little things that we do, 'behind the public' work, outings, and/or fun and play... it is interesting TO SEE THIS, AS TO THE old movies stars, as,
they have BEEN in the public eye THROUGHOUT our lives...

and-- not as themselves, but, as 'created characters' ...
nice to see a bit of 'who they were' in some other respects...

the little things that help other see us for who we really are...
(though of course, in some cases, this may not be good) ...

yet-- whatever and whoever we are, comes to LIGHT, given enough time...
it is really nice, when the light shows GOOD things, that we'd otherwise,
not of had a chance to know, and/or, perhaps even 'learn good lessons' though that knowledge...

just for fun... and, learning how we are 'all in the same' boat, ultimately... just 'living our lives' and trying to make a living...

some folks just ended up MORE FAMOUS, is all...

Powder, you are awesome. Sorry to be part of the confusion. Def not your fault! You were so great to me last year and then getting to meet you this year was such a special treat for me! Just wanted to welcome you to the campfire with a little gift.

You must come to Face Lift this year if at all possible. Follow your dreams! Cheers, Lynne

This arrived before Christmas but I have been a tad swamped.

If you know me you would know I LOVE books.

If you know me then you would know I LOVE Yosemite.

Therefore... SecretSanta did SWELL this year!

Until next year!

Hey there SC Seagoat! I tried to send you this via the ST member message system, but.....

I've been unavoidably detained wrangling mud-fins, crud summits and the like out in XXXXXXXX area lately, and so I did not get a chance to swing through Moab and drop off a card to let you and Ferretlegger (and Teddy) know that I've made a small donation to the Humane Society of Moab in your names (you and Teddy-dog), in fulfilling my part of the ST Secret Santa shenanigans this holiday. I can't seem to find a way for them to show you the gift in your name, but I'll be contacting them about this after the New Year. Don't be too surprised if some triple-secret second-ascent of first-order big summit beta finds its way to you in due time as well.

Happy Solstice, Merry Christmas, Legit Kwanza and all that jazz! Happy 2019 to you and we are on the upswing now - longer and longer days a-comin'!

Thanks to Simon for putting this sharing set-up together.

I have been blessed the second time to received some of the art of our talented artist, Jude. Thank you very much for being my Secret Santa again. Art to share is a gift and a gift again. I display the cards I already have, and now I have more. These cards will only go to people I really, really like. You know who you are. :) Happy New Year and all my best wishes to everyone here on the Taco. (And, John, I hope you are feeling very well very soon. Lynne, I am glad you are better.) New Year blessings to us all! ff
