AND WE'RE OFF!

I received a package in the mail yesterday and my wife Beth texted me and said I had a box addressed to "JudgeRusty."
She was as eager as I was to open the gift; not only is she curious, she loves to sniff out any new tobacco tin notes and give her opinions.

Image

AnungUnRama sent a loaded box of tobacco samples, a much needed tin of OGS, a tin of Krumble Kake, pipe cleaners and a tub full of homemade whoopie pies. Whoopie pies, I understand, are more common north of here or up the east coast, but I can attest they are tasty! While I was checking out the loot, Beth had already opened up one for a sample,

Thanks so much, Preston.

I know it is early, but this is one of my favorite parts of the season each year.

BTW, my sleigh is about ready for liftoff.

I'm glad it all got there ok! Whoopie pies never seemed to make it much past New England. They have Moon Pies here in the armpit of the midwest, but not anywhere near the same thing.

It's both.

And my pic-fu is severely hampered. My circumstances tend to prevent me from uploading and/or viewing many images. To upload a pic would take some extra effort and the willpower to remember which, let's face it, I'll forget by the time I get home :lol:

Not pictured is the box of baked goodies which arrived in far better conditions than DL’s pie. You’ve given me three of my favs and plenty new to try.

Thank you, Tim. I’m grateful.

Yer welcome, and Merry Christmas. I got in a rush and forgot to include the Christmas card to you and family. Careful with those brownies, btw.

Ditto. It would have gone out this morning, but I asked my partner at work what she thought and now she's re-doing all the wrapping and packing. She was right, by the way.

I got one today! I do not recognize the address but Secret Santa from MN, thank you! I got a very nice tobacco pouch, a tin each of Nording Pointer and GLP Stonehenge Flake, and quite possibly the most unique pipe I have in my collection.

The kids are also enthralled with the bubble wrap so it is a win all the way around!Image
