Is there anyone not in the hole? Am I the only one outside the hole? If so, I may as well jump in too.

I will save you the jump, I will push you in for not being "smart- aleck" enough to get pushed before now! Lol! Merry Jesmas!

Can't find my wrapping paper! I think it got put up above my longarm, in the loft, with the rest of the Christmas stuff. Guess I'll have to go buy some 'cuz DH won't let me use ladders anymore. (I fell off one & got hurt)
Today's hint: you have pets

Oh Cindy.............you can't find your wrapping paper because I hid it from you!! :D I just had to visit your quilting shop to see that cute Texas bear in person. I love what you are putting in your Secret Santa's box, she is going to love all of it. By the way, don't you think you should clean up your work area a little bit? I wouldn't want you to get lost out there in your shop!!
:D :D :D :D

Sorry I don't get onto the site as often as I wish. I do a lot of the reading, but a bit on the shy side so I don't reply to much. I am working on my gift box, but I can't find the date that it has to be shipped. Can you help me?

THE RULES....

1. Mail deadline is November 14th. That is a HARD deadline. No mailing AFTER this time. Since you have almost 2 months, there should be NO excuse for mailing late, unless you are incapacitated or 6 feet under.

2. ALL packages MUST have a DELIVERY CONFIRMATION when sent. Last year there were too many packages that were sent late and a few that were not received. With a Delivery Confirmation, the package can be somewhat tracked when received. If the receiver HAS NOT received their package from you and you said you sent it, you will be required to PROVE your sending with a copy of the mail receipt showing such. The mail receipt will show that you paid for the Delivery Confirmation, along with the zip code that the package was shipped to. So, DO NOT toss the receipt or the Deliveryy Confirmation slip away UNTIL YOU HEAR THAT YOUR PERSON HAS RECEIVED THEIR PACKAGE!

I worked for county government at the time...i struggled to meet the bus and get to work only to find that the governor had closed the office. nice trudge getting back to bus stop and getting home. bus couldnt get up the hill to my stop so got off 2 blocks early and plowed through snow drifts up to my crotch to get home 6 blocks away. ht shower and cocoa and hibernated the rest of the day

That was back in 91'!! I know where you live. My mom sent me pictures from the storm.
