Quite a Pile of Loot

Nice quiet Christmas. Steve called this morning and chatted for a while.

Josh came by and brought the big fruit basket on the left.

Loretta sent the CD (Christmas music by her local Fine Arts Association), T-shirt and book (Adventurous Women- lots of good stories there).

See the stick in the back? That was my gift from the party at work. Patty drew my name and gave me this hiking stick. It has quite a story.

First of all, the wood came from the slopes of Mt. St. Helens post eruption. How cool is that? Then, Patty's husband Steve did the carving and painting to decorate it with Native American symbols.

Trust me, this will be for decoration, not hiking with!

Finally, a pretty amazing gift from Omer. The complete set of Perry Mason TV show episodes. I've watched 6 of them today! (265 to go). So well done! The series began in 1957, and although dated, clearly are quality acting and production.

You got some great gifts. The hiking stick is a work of art. I used to like watching Perry Mason.

WOW! Looks like you had a GREAT Christmas! LOVE the hiking stick. Better than all is the calls/visits from the kids. :)
