After checks, we went out for dinner with RaDora (it's a great habit we're getting into!) and I (well, actually, we, as in Bruce and me) got my (our) first Christmas present of the year!
(Sorry about the stock photo, but I'm trying to hurry)!
It's the game Bananagrams -- sort of a cross between Scrabble and Boggle and WordTwist and all of those word games that we adore -- but it's racing against each other, so that means Bruce can't take twenty minutes to play his turn, hallelujah :)...and it comes in a nifty little banana-shaped sack...it couldn't get much better than all this!!!
And this just gives us another reason to love RaDora...she's about as good at waiting to give gifts as I am! Her reasoning is very good (we who hate to wait to give gifts are also very accomplished at concocting good reasons for why we should give them early) -- now we can take the game to play with the Florida fam at Thanksgiving. I'll let you know how it goes!
