Secret Santa 2017

I hate to remind everyone, but it's that time again!

Some of us need lead time to participate, so let's get going! I really look forward to this time as I no longer have family to shop for.

You are my family now!

I would love to participate, and as an early bonus gift to all of you, I recuse myself from the role of organizer.

I had a volunteer organizer, but she had a relapse of mononucleosis, so she's probably out.

So, little interest this year. Too bad. I have only two home periods left until Xmas. I can shop online, but have to be home to mail things. Someone PLEASE step up and get this off the ground!

Well I can organize for you if you like, but it looks like there are only 4 interested so far. Still want to do it?
