A Day of Surprises, yoo ha

A few weeks ago the Melbourne Cup was run and guess whose horse won? Mine did, mine did...Effienct came in like a champ, I was pulling for him all the way and because he had such merry running legs, I won this gorgeous horseshoe, all decorated for Christmas. What a lucky girl I am, and I mean Jenn and Jacqui ( ) have really been too generous. I received a lovely day planner, the most gorgeous pen with a rose attached (that looked so real, Mac (WTHF) picked it up and smelled it, then my buddy Joanne did the same thing! A Womans Day magazine (Australian!) and the most lovely picture of rabbits , it made me want to cry. There was a Cadbury (best candy in the world) Cherry bar...which Mac immediately grabbed and ran off, they're like children...anyway, he reports it was just too wonderful, too wonderful for words, it's marvelous, so marvelous...well, you get the picture...he's a pretty darned good singer, but he has two left feet and the dancing was really bad. He tells me it was like a mounds bar but instead of chocolate covering the coconut, it was a cherry jubilee...he gets pretty graphic when candy is involved...Well, here's the pictures of my haul...I mean, my gifts....I am so very Thankful for my friends, Jenn and Jacqui...and if that was not enough, they have given me an's the friendly site award, and I do appreciate it, girls. Love you too!!!
