Well, it’s happened again — Thanksgiving is breathing down my neck and not one shop-made Christmas gift is ready. But fear not, I live for deadlines (even if that sounds a bit like an oxymoron), and I have a plan in my head for success.
This year, my grandson will get a wooden airplane on the big day, and my granddaughter will get a treasure box. I can’t give away the other gifts that I have on the docket, as the recipients of those presents can actually read. I am hoping that you all are further along in your annual present making marathon — and if so, perhaps you can share what you are up to. We promise not to let the cat out of the bag … you’ll only be sharing with a couple hundred thousand of your closest friends!
