Well at least we know Alison's SSSSS can do HTML. Not much of a clue really.

Still isn't much of a clue, is it? JennyO's mid-year Secret Santa can also "do HTML." Keep an eye on your post, dear!

So I haven't been forgotten then! I had just about resigned myself to missing out this time.

Okay, I'll keep an eye on the post - this must be some sort of record - well on the way to Christmas in July!

JennyO, I finally, finally, finally, the elves got off of their duffs (they were out on an extended vacation in Cancun to soak up some sun) and sent your replacement box. The reindeer refused to have anything to do with take-offs and landings in the thaw around the pole, so I had to beg and wheedle and finally, well, I'm embarrassed to say, but I finally bribed a postal employee to stick it into the back end of one of those silver birds. If they can't manage to fly over your house to drop it on your porch they may have to land and hand carry it.

There was one freelance elf helping on this, but I haven't seen any trace of that one's activity (nothing mentioned here about billet-doux arriving from hither and yon). I hope they have been arriving, so you knew this Santa hadn't forgotten about you.

Your contrite substitute Secret Santa

Now that you mention it, substitute Secret Santa, I do seem to be getting a little collection of postcards - two came together from Indianapolis a few weeks ago (I suspect they were from you), and then there was one (with different handwriting) from Texarkana. Curiouser and curiouser! I'm still watching and waiting! Better late than never, eh?

And I'd love to know what became of my original Santa.

You could say that the left hand and the right hand have a different way of writing, or that my right hand elf is left handed. Or you could say that the elf hopped off of the sleigh a couple of times between the North Pole and Cancun to mail cards for me.

Limpit and I finally got round to making up the blueberry muffin mix that she got from her Secret Santa - it got lost in the cupboard....

I can wholeheartedly recommend them on smell alone - we were very good and are saving them for the assembled company at the Handfasting this weekend.

I think we still have some of Micca's chocolate treats around here that Moonglow received. We had a lot of fun reading the newspaper packing material.

Woo hoo!!!! A box arrived on my doorstep today! A big notice was on it saying it had been inspected by customs. However, on looking inside, there was another notice saying nothing had been removed. And just as well! I would have hated to miss out on the chocolate-covered blueberries and all the other goodies!

The timing is perfect - winter is starting to make its presence felt, and I am looking forward to all sorts of wonderful chili dishes to keep me warm. It's gonna be a HOT time in the old town tonight!!

Only last night after looking at Joybell's thread, my suspicions were confirmed - that Stilly River Sage is my Substitute Super Secret Santa, with some help from elf Joybell (that post about your little errand a few days ago started me thinking SRS).

I'd be interested to know a bit more about my keyring ornament - where it came from and how it was made. I love it!

THANKYOU! THANKYOU SS SRS!
- and thankyou for the postcard, elf-type person Joybell!

That box was supposed to be a sort of tour of North America. Mexico and the Southwest with the chile and the seasonings, and the middle part of the U.S. with the berries and the Northwest with the Almond Roca (Brown and Haley make them daily!) and the northern part of Canada (Nunuvik) with the keychain. It's called an inukshuk and symbolizes the cairns that are built as markers when traveling thorough such open landscape and on beaches. Look near the bottom of this page and you'll see a quite unusual one.

Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it. What do you want to bet the sniffing dogs got a hint of capsacin when they went past that box?

Joy looked positively mischievious when she suggested that could send a few more cards along with the ones I'd written out. I wasn't sure, though, that if by sending them with a traveler it might doom them to be delayed until she got home (around the US it has been noted by many travelers that your postcards never reach the people you sent them to until after you are already back home). I'm glad they drifted in for a little buildup.

If you look at the package on the dried New Mexico chiles there are directions for how to prepare them.

"My eyes are dim, I cannot see,
I have not brought my specs with me..."

Hey guys - I go away for a few weeks and some MudElf mails me a package. I get home and I find a complete set of the Mudcat CDs!!!!!

I've checked the customs form and it was a Mr Squiggle that mailed it! It wasn't marked 'opened by customs' - it was amazing that it arrived not empty, cause the package had not been taped tightly shut and the Cd's were sliding out the side of the packet when I got it - all were there and the shrink wraps were unopened though!

Now you've upset my karma!

I'll just have to try and get even!

Thanks!

I only mailed one box--this mystery package wasn't from me. I don't believe we have a Mudcatter by the name of Mr. Squiggle. Sounds like subterfuge, and you'll have to get out your deerstalker and meerschaum to do some detecting. Do you have any ideas to begin with?

I believe Mr. Squiggle is a UKer. If he chooses to remain anonymous, I won't tell.

I'm aware of someone who used the handle 'Squiggle', but I don't know if he would have done it.

Heck, I couldn't even afford all the CDs in one swell foop and the postage probably cost more than the CDs. There are a couple of people - maybe more - who are responsible for a few random acts of kindness. You're looking for a crazy person with a disposable income or an even crazier person who's going to be eating instant noodles for a while.

This is a three-year-old thread. You might want to post that on the more current thread or you'll confuse the heck out of everyone (unless, of course, you're talking about a gift that took over three years to arrive?)
