4 days till Christmas

I went out after work last night and did my goody basket shopping.  I got mixes for 2 different types of quickbread.  Tea, hot chocolate, honey, fancy olives and fruit.  The olives really don't seem to fit do they?  I might leave them out and give them to by friend Dave who likes them. 

I came home to a wonderful surprise!  My neighbor came over and shoveled out my driveway and walk!  He came over as I pulled up and I gave him a big hug.  He told me he broke my shovel and he bought me a new one!  I told him he didn't have to do that!  I got a pan of my homemade fudge and brought it over for him and his wife.  I was so pleased.  I told him he could use my snowblower on the next storm.  I will leave him the key.  I need to get ingrediants for more fudge now!  It was worth it though!  Linda

That was a good thing for him to do, so now maybe he will blow your drive and his too. Helen

WOW that was wonderful of him!  Our neighbors would always beat us out to shovel too and would shovel ours a lot of the time.  I had a tiny baby at the time so I sure did appreciate it!  Have a great day!!

Well that was a wonderful thing for him to do, and for you to do for them too. The Christmas spirit was alive and well that day for sure. :)
