Taj Mahal - "Mumtaz Mahal" Mudcatters lanfranc's, alanbit's, Fortunato's CDs, or any other Mudcatter's for that matter, though I have quite a few, so would need to PM a list to Khatt or something, for forwarding, to avoid dupes (I think I am lacking one of Rick Fielding's!);

10. do you collect anything? if so, what? I used to, stones, bits of sea glass, old books, antiques, but have decided there's enough clutter and dust for the rest of my lifetime, so...oh well, IF it's a nice piece of stone, glass, or whathaveyou from your area or some other smallish thing, i.e. seashell, etc. I'd love it

11. what are some of your other hobbies? besides Mudcatting? Reading, photography, designing jewelry and greeting cards

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? neither, don't do much jewelry anymore and already have enough if I change my mind

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like As others have said, I would also be happy with anything from your region, anything you might make yourself, and/or anything you might want to pass on. I am a great believer in recycling, reusing, giveaways, etc. and love to get "old things." I do not like "cutesy" things, though and most scented things send me running out the door for fresh air, esp. candles and perfumes:-) Love animals, music, good books, walks on the beach, same**bg**
