Concerning My Gift And A Mysterious Happening

I decided to take a picture of the beautiful box my daughter decorated and gave me for Christmas (the photo doesn’t do it justice, unfortunately—it is gorgeous, with several types of wood and copper edging, and, as you can see, a picture of the two of us). I wanted to share my gift with y’all.

  3. Lead me to the guilty party . . . a name, or else a species, please. . . .

  4. I recuse myself from the competition, but I just wanted to say WOW, what a gorgeous box (and gorgeous photo of the two of you!).

  5. Ah, thank you, YM. It really IS gorgeous. I wish I could show you in person. 😉

    Okay, you’re recused.

    If none of you steps up here and points a finger, I’m going to have to go a sleuthin’ myself and then reward myself with the certificate. How lame would that be?

  6. It’s amazing how much trouble an innocent dog can get into isn’t it! One of my dogs has a tail like a wrecking ball…

  7. Izzy done it! I cheated, I read your latest blog.
