Care Packages!

Landlady came up a day early, which brought Christmas on Friday! Yay!

Longtime Friend of the Blog ilo jones sent no less than four boxes of stuff. I got electrical stuff from Edward, the fellow who sent me that great Carhartt coat in January. And Claire, god bless her, sent two! bottles of crack sauce just when I (and the Wal-Mart 50 miles away) ran dry. Enough crack sauce and good coffee can make pretty much any life at least kinda worth living.

Spices and sauces! Winter clothes! (no joke, I even splurged on a couple of cheap mail order watch caps despite the ironic weather, because Winter Is Coming.) Books! (including one on my new LB-approved hobby, making doggy treats) Romex! 12 volt lighting! A couple of cool coffee mugs (the molon labe mug broke in transit, but I have access to Kragle.) Cookie cutters for doggy treats! Actual doggy treats! Yeast! A backup multimeter! Plus a gigantic bag of dog food from Landlady.

    WooHoo! I love hearing about care packages. It’s always fun and adventure what folks think of to send you.

    Me, too, coloradohermit. Thanks, Joel, for posting this. If I’d have known you were in a crack-sauce crisis, I’d have sent a case. :-)

    Those Thai spice and noodle packages are great. My personal favorite is the Pad Thai, with peas and shredded carrots. I usually up the number of eggs, too. And a dash of soy sauce. Yum.

To the stake with the heretic!
