Christmas Gifts For My Readers

Since I like to keep Christmas as simple as possible, I am offering, again, the Christmas gifts I've given you, my readers, the last four years. I enjoy giving them early in case you would like to share some of the gifts with your own friends and family. There's a variety here for both men and women, well, I hope you'll agree. :)

Wishing you all an early Merry Christmas... I appreciate your readership and friendship way more than you know!

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Debra. This blustery winter day, I'm cheered by the your photo of a bright green day. And what a surprise to find Betsy McCall here. I used to watch for her every month in my mother's magazine./ Rona

What a wonderful list. I used to live in Mt. Airy, and still have relatives there. Unfortunately it isn't anything like Mayberry these days. However, if one drives over to Pilot Mountain, which is nearby, that resembles Mayberry, or at least it did the last time we were there. xoxo
