presents....and precious gifts

they say that great things come in small packages (especially the really small jewelry-sized packages!), but i've discovered that fantastic things also come in medium packages! my little dutch boy surprised me with this new toy for my "30-20" celebration, and i am absolutely thrilled!! i must admit, however, that there are an awful lot of dials, numbers and letters on this and i feel somewhat clueless....but my dutch boy knows me so well that he arranged for classes for me! yippee for new toys in medium-sized packages! and for all of those precious gifts that don't come in packages....rah-rah-shish-boom-bah and many thanks to all of you for your sweet, sweet birthday wishes, hooray for the 30-20 club, and a big woo hoo and mega-hugs to my little dutch boy for making every day of my life a wonderful celebration!

Happy Happy Birthday dear friend! And what a guy your Dutch boy is - classes. Wish I'd had some... would have saved me from reinventing the wheel a few times over!
