A Gift For Me From Afar

From a Far_Side_of_Fifty to be exact!

This morning while I was……well hmm I don’t remember what I was doing. ????? Anyhow while I was doing what ever it is I was doing, the mail lady came and dropped off some packages.  They both where from one of my cousins, one for us, and one for one of the married sisters that she must not have the address for. Inside the priority mail box were some cookies and other goodies, I took a cookie and headed out to do my laundry. (Yes, I said out to do laundry, it’s in a separate house. This little farm house has no place for a washer or a dryer).      


As I was finishing up in the laundry house I saw the mail lady drive by again, when I got back in side I asked was there another package? Dad said “from Minnesota” I new instantly what it was, Mom was getting a wood carving from Connie at Far Side of Fifty!

Mom was opening her package when she said, “oh Bet, there’s something for you.”

I said, “for me?” I opened my package and there was my very own little wood carving!  That is it in the pic above…..I am so very very happy, thank you Connie it is so cute!

So Glad you liked it!! It was one of the first ones I carved..and I only did a few with that post in the front because they were hard to carve. ..so it is most certainly one of a kind..most likely alot like you! I hope you enjoy it for years! :)
