I PERSONALLY have celebrated Christmas in July at the Lake...decorated tree and all! LOL

With any luck, you'll not be the only Santee with a late but happy ending.

Oh! Dear SS , I had no wish to offend. I loved the receiving bit too, infact I am just getting organised with making a small photo Album for Andy's Mum and using some of the paper you gave me. Tis a really lovely pack. I was veryexcited when my pressie came.......... and I left it to last on Christmas day to continue the excitement.

No clues to your identity yet, or am I just being really thick!

It arrived and I have some basic research information to work with on my SS ID. One feeler out.

Meanwhile, what a perfect selection! I have been checking out the 2008 calendars to see if I could find one I'd like to look at for the next year. The kitchen is okay but I didn't have one in my office. And then this box arrives--and it's kind of funny, because the calendar has most of the same rare succulent and unusual plants I grew up looking at in the far Northwest! I can see that Maine and Washington have a lot in common! A mug with a lighthouse will compliment all of the lighthouse art my mother sent over the years to remind me of home. And a couple of lobster items--forgive me, but I did read the ingredients carefully on the rock candy. I couldn't imagine it being an ingredient, but I checked just to be sure (nope).

Great array of stuff, Bill. And did you know that there must be over 100 Mudcat variations of the name "Bill" when you search for the name? I'm working on the surname. Portland, ME.

Thanks! (And I wonder at the story, still--where was this Santa for so long? Out of the country, you said?)

Mine have always arrived early before this year. And the ones I sent always arrived on time, though there was one year it was a little too close and ended up on boxing day. Usually it works out, and I do enjoy meeting new folks. It is a bit surprising how many seem to go AWOL.

Still hoping

This is the first year it's gone wrong and I'm partly to blame so I'll give it another go ...it's always great getting unusual stuff and music from people around the world and it's a nice feeling to give too.

First year I participated my pressie took 3 months to sail from USA to Oz & Santa (Giac) kept in touch while we waited, another year my Santa couldn't get to a mail box for a while due to family/work circumstances & said so. Another year my Santee changed addresses & forgot to tell Liz until the parcel was RTS!

One year Liz published the Santa/Santee list & I assume it would have been possible to trace the delinquents.
