Truthfully, I haven't a clue what I am looking for.

I have been using the 'Search' function looking at threads my person has posted in in an attempt to gain some idea of the person behind the name.  It hasn't gone near as well as I had hoped.

I may give in and resort to alcohol in attempt to stimulate my creative side.  I haven't done that in a very long time so I may be entitled by now.

Well, I'm just back from the Post Office...

Both Dougal the dog's gift to his person, and my gift to my person have gone into the post this morning!...

They should arrive in about two weeks... The gifts are NOT wrapped inside, so keep out until Christmas!...

Love to all...

I have just sent my gifts today via Amazon.  Can you let my Secret Santa giftee know that they will receive two gifts, one will be Amazon and the other will arrive separately.

I sent mine off the other day! Sorry Im just getting on, I am not seeing the best right now!
I didnt wrap them! I feel bad but i am not ery good at wrapping oddly shaped things, and seperately boxing everyting wouldve made shipping ridiculous.

Mine went out Tuesday, I think, but I know how long it takes for things mailed out to get to where it's going, as I've sent things there before... it should get there in plenty of time

Mailed last Thursday.  I didn't look well enough to find this thread and post.

Sorry, I didn't wrap things.  I'm a 'Guy' and can get lazy, or all thumbs.  Take your pick!

I have received my gitt.  A Baxter box arrived that is not from Baxter but Warrwndon, Missouri, so I presume my Secret Santa is Charlie B53.  I am keeping it until Christmas to open.  Many thanks.  Xxx

I still have quite a pile of flattened 'Baxter' boxes from my PD days.  They are so sturdy I can't throw them away.  Great for packing 'stuff' you want well protected.
