Subject: RE: BS: What'd Ya Get?
I too got a stinking cold - now very 'chesty' and wheezing. But, I also got my son home from Iraq safe and (now) well. I also got to cook dinner for my very special friends from next door who are shortly moving to live in France, so their company for Xmas and Boxing Day was a real treat. I also had, for the first time this Christmas, a daughter-in-law, and got to cuddle her Akita's first litter of five week old pups - ahhhhhh!!!

On the more mercenary side - several good books, an electric ladyshaver, a beautiful silver and amber brooch, a really nice fountain pen, chocolate too. Think we'll have to start a dieters' thread to give support to those trying to lose weight in the New Year.

P.S. Cats - add to the list for your tree a crocheted owl from Japan - will deliver on Friday evening.
