Well, hello there, stranger! That was really funny (as usual). Long time, no comment. Hope you're doing well. Happy New Year to you and yours.

Linda, Linda, Linda!
I was just thinking of you last night as I read through some of my old, old posts. Not that you're old or anything. Are you blogging again? You seem to have dropped off the face of Hillmomba!

You are funny! Take it from someone who once received 40lbs of cow manure as a Mothers Day gift... no matter how specific you are, they will still misinterpret your hints, no matter how specific they are!

I hope you mean funny-ha,ha. Not funny-odd. You have me beat on the worst present ever. Mine was the Red Devil vacuum that was unwrapped for me by BadGifter H's boys as I held my two-week-old #1 son. I never saw it again, my Red Devil. After a year, I asked about it, and BadGifter H said, "Oh, I use it out in my workshop."
