This year I joined a group of people (and maybe some dogs or something - yah never know) involved in a Secret Santa gift giving. Two awesome ladies, Amy and Georgie, are the instigators, uh, administrators of the effort, and it had to be an exhausting enterprise to say the least. Anyway, one of the requirements is to post about your gift when it arrives.
I don’t know who my Secret Santa is, but he, she or it really did the job right in my case.
Below are the THREE (3), gifts sent to me. Ain’t they purty?
These is the same gifts (did I say 3?) opened. They are freaking awesome.
The t-shirt says, “I’m not a Doctor, but I’ll take a look anyway.” Is that me or what? I’m always willing to do breast and pelvic exams. And I also keep a pretty sharp pocket knife in my pocket of any impromptu pap smears that need to be made.
And the Civil War book, “Campaigns of the Civil War - A Photographic History” is perfect as I am a huge fan of anything relating to the Campaign of Northern Aggression and the illegal trespassing of those Godless Yankees on our Southern Sacred Soil. And more important - it has pictures, my favorite form of reading (next to audio books.)
And there is a box of Anthony-Thomas’s Buckeyes, a peanut butter and Milk Chocolate candies that are officially licensed by The Ohio State University. So I guess not all Yankees are Godless.
And the beautiful card says on the outside, “Ho, Ho, Ho” - three of my favorite type ladies.
And the inside says, “Oh! Oh! Oh! Wishing you a Holiday Season filled with Faith, Hope and Love.”
And hand written “Merry Christmas from your favorite blogging buddy, Secret Santa!!”
Now is that cool or what.
So, who ever your are, I thank you very much. If you are a woman I’ll give you some, if you are a man I’ll buy you a cup of coffee or a cold beer, and if you are a dog or something, I’ll give you a huge hug and a belly rub.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
