The Christmas That Was…

From my “sis” across the pond, Cath, I received these wonderful things to remind me how much I’d love to see England! lol.. A beautiful nature calendar and a booklet and gorgeous leather bookmark from Tintagel Castle.. former home of King Arthur and Merlin’s cave!!!  (Cornwall is calling me!)  ..I can’t thank you enough sis!

Debi sent me all sorts of goodies!  From a Huge cup of Coco, to a funky kitty to a book long forgotten… I read this book probably when it first was in paperback …right after I had red the Riddle Master of Hed trilogy!  But do I remember what this book is about? nada..not one single thing and so I can’t wait to read it as a new book!… and talk about luck… my eyes won’t read small paperback print but this is larger print double spaced!!! Yesssssssssss!!!!!  

thank you thank you bunches and bunches Debi!

ahhhh, what can I say about my “son” Chris? he loves his “Mama” lol.. look at the goodies! In there is a gingerbread man cookie, some sweet stuff for the Pond birdies, some DELICIOUS Pineapple jelly and…  Belgium Chocolates!… I do believe he wants to keep his Mama fat!

Love you baby boy… thank you again and again…

And then there is the challenge king of our blogs, Carl!  He saw what I saw and said it needed to be with Me.. and so  McCoy poppet found his way home to reside with me…and my De/McCoy/Cowboy collection.

Merry Christmas!!!

What a nice haul! I remember reading The Forgotten Beasts of Eld many, many years ago. In fact I can still picture laying in the top bunk of the room I shared with my brother, reading the book after excitedly finding it on the small local mall bookstore shelf. I've got to work some Patricia A. McKillip in soon.

Have a wonderful rest of your Christmas Day!!!

I think blogger ate the first comment I left. I came here yesterday and left one.....I love the McCoy poppet! Oh! He's adorable. You so deserve him, Pat. What a treasure....Forgotten Beasts of Eld is a lovely book, it was the first one by her that I read, long ago. I think I cried at the ending.

You were so spoiled and so deserve it! Merry Christmas, Pat!
