Done. Now I must go find tacky Kansas stuff over the next month. Who likes sunflowers, wheat, and Wizard of Oz?

I still have no idea how to post photos, so either someone give me a tutorial or just accept that I won't be posting photos! :)

Half purchased for my victim. The other half is being procured fairly soon. Hint to victim...it ain't headed east.

The bad thing is I don't have presents to mail out this year, otherwise it would be ready for that PO run.

I picked up a couple nice things from Lindsborg, our local Swedish town, but I need a little more to fill out the gift package. I'm hoping the local stores have something, but in this town that's a lot of hoping. I really don't want to drive to Wichita so I can shop local.

Got a great gift from Peach. Best peanuts ever. A VA glass that the youngest is eyeing. Some hot sauce that will go great with my next tacos and of course a bottle opener for whatever beer I’m drinking with it. The oldest is eyeing the VA cookie cookie cutter filled with chocolate but she’s not getting it. Maybe I’ll share.

Thanks Peach!

I should have mine ready to go out Monday if I can find some ribbon
