And in the meantime (when struggling with resizing photo in photobucket) the postman came and left another invitation to the post office. Day by day, steady inflow of gifts! Great!

You can easily resize photos on your desktop once you put them in a folder. I don't know if you are Mac or PC, but Windows allow you to resize when you click on 'Edit' the photo. I think it is the second tab over... click on resize... choose 600 mgpxl and you are good to go.

I have received a few emails from Santa asking questions, it seems we have similar hobbies/likes but also they are items not easily shipped in/to Pennsylvania, so Santa decided to drop them on my porch.
After a few more emails we actually decided to meet at a local microbrewery, and I am taking Santa the adult equivalent of milk and cookies, subbing milk with a recently home-brewed Kolsch. We are meeting on the 20th.

Can't wait!! I actually get to meet Santa, and Mr Santa, Hmmm, never knew Santa was a female, who would have figured....

I received my first gift.


FlyerTalk Secret Santa 2014 - Gift 1 by desquiliano, on Flickr

It contained a pouch, t-shirt, and book from my wish list, a power stick, and candy, which I have already shared with our office staff. Oh, and a beautiful card.

Thank you! I loved it.

Chief Santa is male... but his helpers are both male and female.

Of course, this particular helper will be able to drink you under the table... so watch out!

Got news from Santa that there should be a knock on the door this week with an early present. Pretty excited for the first gift of the holiday season.

On the other side, looks like 5/6 gifts have been delivered to my victims (2). Last present seems to be taking awhile too long in processing, thinking I'll poke the elves a bit to see if they can get it shipped quicker.

Thanks again guys.

And, last but not least..... WiscAz (love that nickname).

as I moved from Muskego, WI to the Valley of the Sun 10 years ago next month.

I received this lovely group of presents, but since he did a great job wrapping them, they'll wait until Christmas eve to open. EDIT- ok, the 23rd



He did put a note that it is Norwegian swag, very high on my wish list.

EDIT: A very nice mug, puzzle and a calendar with a Norway book- thanks so very much!!


Thank you very much for your considerate gift, Ben!

My wrapping/shipping spree on Saturday was interrupted when my Mother was sent to the ER (and to the ICU that night, where she remains).

One package that had already been labeled went out today; will finish packing the other tomorrow or Wednesday. Don't worry, even with this delay in shipping the last package, it will still arrive this week.
