A Pleasant Surprise...

Our postman delivered a small package yesterday evening to Straight White House....from none other than Mrs. Beth Donovan!....the package was opened with much anticipation....and inside was found a small metal tin...decorated in a festive motif...upon opening the tin, the smell of heaven filled the room....What is the smell of heaven?....well, it is hard to describe....but, I'll try....

In my world, Heaven smells of cinnamon....powdered sugar.... pecans.... nutmeg... whiskey... and friendship...

...and that was what was contained in that small, festive tin from Kansas...Thanks to you Beth and John! I must say this though, of the two types of homemade candy you sent, I must choose the Whiskey Balls as my favorite....although...sitting here this morning, the Pecan Balls go VERY well with a nice cup of coffee....

oh...and for those of you who are puzzled by this wonderful gift....it was my "prize" for designing the "Congress of Nekkid Bloggers" logo....thanks again to the Donovan Family!

I'm still waiting for mine... :( I bet the postal employees could smell the wonderfulness of the goodies inside and decided to keep it all to themselves!

Let's hope not. Gggrrrrr.... Now I really WILL be stalking my mailbox tomorrow! ;)

Whiskey Balls is a candy? I always thought that it was a Sunday morning condition.

Come, come, Gooseneck! If " I love to smell of cordite, it's the scent of victory" means anything to you, then the taste of Laphroig or Glen Breton impells one to that victory! Suck back a shot of either, and you should be ready to fight.

Cheers
