    Don't let your pets read How to Plan a Crusade, or you may be in trouble!

      Gene is already occupying the holy of holys. What more could he want?

        Looks to me like you’re planning a trip to England and will eat chocolates and play Sudoku on the plane!

          I am coveting your looney tunes book and stickers.

              Looks like a lovely bunch of loot. At trip to England and maybe Scandinavia in your future? Love the Sudoku puzzles. Have you tried them on a phone app?

                The chocolate will be long gone by the time I get on the plane. The rest is accurate.

                  It started when we traveled elsewhere for Christmas. We don't do that anymore, but this way we emphasize creativity over expense.

                    Probably England this year. Maybe Scandinavia later (we went to Norway...eight years ago). I enjoy the paper-and-pencil part of solving Sudokus.

                      Butter socks? Is that a pair of socks with a butter design? I'm not exactly sure what a collapsable umbrella is either. Sounds like you got a lot of nice gifts.

                        I had never heard of them either. They are very soft comfortable socks. If you google "butter socks," you will get some hits.

                        Yes, I suppose you could say that every umbrella is collapsible. This is the kind that becomes very compact when not in use, so that it's easy to carry around and store.
