I come home from D in hosp. Itís cold cos Spring can be like that, and itís cold cos the CH boiler was condemned yesterday. And than I see a package addressed to me. Itís from the US.

In it I find a bright orange IHD rucksack, IHD pencils, and a IHD door/cow bell. How lovely, but why? I PMd Kitkatz and of course: a while back Kitkatz asked who wanted her Ď18 leftover stuff. Yes please  :laugh:

Itís lovely, and a surprise.

Thanx Kitkatz

I put my name on that list too.  Hopefully mine will arrive shortly. :clap;

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my kidneys the most.

I had that same surprise the other day.

You can be sure I sent KK a PM Thanks!

I've already put the bag to use to carry a couple of my more favorite Bibles.

I am thinking about hanging that Bell on my Harley.  I may have to find just the 'right' gauge of heavier wire to form my own chain links to mount it where I want.  I can bend metal to make it look like it came that way.

I plan on giving the pencils to two of the Fresenius Nurses that take care of me.  Maybe they will start telling more patients of our site.

Thanks again KK!

Take Care All,

Charlie B53

I got one too!!  I had actually forgotten about Kitkatz's post about the leftover stuff, and since she had given me some of those things for Christmas, I wasn't sure what it was she was sending me.

I'm planning on taking the tote bag to Philadelphia with me, as a gift for my friend, Kelly.
