Since I've been displaying my Christmas swag lately, I will also show you a precious gift that was unexpected. It was bestowed upon me by my sister the ex-mayor's wife. Oh, I expected a gift. We always exchange gifts. This one just caught me off guard.
Isn't that sweet? I think a couple tears formed when I unwrapped it Christmas Eve. It's a key ring, but so much more. Now I feel bad about poking some fun at Sis every now and then. Not that my motives are ever evil, mind you.
Not lost on me is the fact that the two beads are our birthstones. That's gotta be more than a coincidence, don't you think?
It makes my gift to her, of two retro Betty Crocker cookbooks, seem a bit impersonal, even though Sis likes to cook.
Well played, Sis. Well played.
