I just wanted to let my Santas know that I am out of the country and will be back in a week and will open my presents. 2 packages from the same Santa arrived via Fedex last week were picked up and brought into my house by a neighbour.

Wow! Santa 4's package arrived tonight. An international assortment of Prophylactics and intimate lubricants. Uh - thanks! I guess they are for the Mile High Club?

Received Gifts from John S

I received A $10 Amazon Gift card, Norwegian Airlines 787 plane model, and some really cool salt and pepper shakers.

I am curious to know where the salt and pepper shakers came from, I am assuming Peru, Mexico, or somewhere in Central America, but do not know the FT handle for my secret Santa. If you could let me know that would be great because I love them!



Thanks John S-H for all of these awesome gifts!

Merry Christmas!

Thank you to my Secret Santas for some wonderful gifts!!!

First and foremost - a wonderful collection of an AA plane with some excellent humor in the Breaking Bad News book, yummy candy and some bacteria



Next up, an excellent travel charger - huge capacity - wonderful tool for any trip!



Last but not least, a great thoughtful collection of gifts for my trip to Australia for the cricket world cup. So excited and thanks for getting me in the spirit for this!



I can't express enough gratitude to all my Secret Santas! Thank you so much!!!

I finally got pictures together and opened everything I received a couple days ago.

First I received a book about Machu Picchu, a box of Tobiemon golf balls, a mug with what I think is a Japanese golfer, and steelers and braves dog toys. The book will be great to read before my trip to Peru and the golf balls will be put to good use.



Next I received a world map painted on a wood background. This will definitely help me cover up some of the empty wall space in my new apartment.


The package from my third SS contained several bags of dog treats, purple Amish popcorn, a steelers t-shirt, and map of the Portland course @ the Royal Troon Golf Club. The shirt will come in very handy for this years playoffs. The map is amazing because I was actually planning on going there for the 2016 Open championship.


Finally I received a couple more envelopes. One had a "Fly SUX" decal and the other had a poster and several postcards of the Lick Observatory, which is only about a 45 minute drive from me.


Molly and Tara enjoying their new toys. Tara refused to let go of the braves toy for over 2 hours.


Thank you to all of of my Secret Santas for the amazing gifts.

Finally I got to see someone post one of my gifts! Hope you enjoy it and happy to see that the pups did!

For you veteran participants: did you buy stuff during the year in anticipation, even though there was no "guarantee" of a swap this year until November?

No, but then I generally try to buy things specifically for each recipient.
