Tom's in -- this is actually Bat Goddess posting for curmudgeon since he can no longer see the computer and we haven't had the time to set up something like VoiceOver.

1. what is your age range? 70+

2. gender? M

3. Do you have a favorite color? No.

4. favorite authors/ type of book?    Regional cook books.

5. what books have you really been wanting? Except for some true rarities, I have them all, except for Alf Edwards' concertina tutor.

6. what type of music do you like? Traditional, older folk music (as mentioned in the book question). English and Scottish trad, sea songs.

7. what cds have you really been wanting? One of yours or one of your friends.

8. What movies (vhs is in the price range) have you been wanting? Can no longer watch them.

9. what is your t-shirt size? Don't wear them.

10. do you collect anything? if so, what? Used Britains toy soldiers, concertinas, edged weapons, single malts, rums.

11. what are some of your other hobbies? Just looked at Tom's previous answer --cooking and singing. He can no longer do either (although he confers with me on cooking, especially when I'm learning how to make one of his specialties). Tom lost his voice to vocal cord cancer in 2009.

12. do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? Don't usually do jewelry.

13. please include anything else you feel is important that would help your secret santa know what you would like. Small tins, jars, packs of gustatory delights from your home region. (Nothing too hard or crunchy, though, please.) And note that, though Tom is now blind, Bat Goddess reads to him every night.

Thank you, Santa - Tom
