It's no secret that I love my birthday! I guess I just get a big kick out of getting older... (grin) I weaseled my gifts out of the D a bit early. After failing to win support for my "7 Days of V" campaign, he finally broke down and honored the eve of my birth. In addition to seasons 2 and 3 of the TV show, Hazel, he also tracked down a yellow speckleware loaf pan and two muffin tins. Love! I'm told something else is arriving today, but he's been fairly tight-lipped. (grin) My in-laws delivered a rainbow of thread and a couple more books for my collection. Sweet, sweet!
