We called it "The Basket of Love"
It was supposed to be our $50 exchange gift.

Sad, though, it never quite made it from the car to the garage.
Mr GG had an 'accident' and it landed straight in the trash can at the end of the driveway.
Hmm, that is similar to my family's notorious hat box secret Santa exchange gift at my grandma's Christmas party. My aunt had given her friend some money to come up with something "creative" for a secret Santa game my family plays every year. So she took a hat box, kinda sorta painted it (I think) and glued a couple twigs to it. Everyone thought it was a peace of garbage (literally), until we were down to the last gift. It kept turning up at that exchange every year until another of my aunt's "won" it and then promptly burned it.

I didn't know there was such a thing , if I could remember what I learned about knitting I could have given that to all the male members in my family

something tells me they don't carry the pattern for that at the local So Fro...

I got a bottle of really ugly fingernail polish from someone who also said my "main gift" didn't yet arrive so I will have to wait for it. Gee, I can only sit and wonderwhat on earth THAT might be!

Aha.....did someone mention a sword..........{does it possess any magical qualities?}....this is interesting...........and what, may I ask has become of this so-called "sword'?
