In Which I Traded Out Granny's Necklace.

Well, I went to the Epiphany party last night, from 6:30 to about 8:30. And I indeed traded out grandmother's necklace.

In its place, I have a cheap plastic Menorah with nine brand-new light bulbs, of which six work.
I put it on my bed stand. For now, it is sitting next to the cheap red plastic Santeria Buddha I bought in Juarez in 1995.

Ann: Never knew that anyone ever threw an Epiphany Party?

All you need is a dream-catcher or two, and some incense burners, and you're pretty much set now.
Just don't get into the sugar rock-candy SKULLS they sell around the Mexican Day of the Dead...they WILL cause cavities.

Have a great weekend.

An "Epiphany Party"... cool!

Traded Grandma's necklace, did you?

Well, based on my experiences, what you did and what you got is what life is...

I think we all wonder everyday about what we gave and what we have now?

Nice party...

LOL! I don't know Ann - we might need to see a picture of this tableau.

Dear Bob,
Every year Allan Quartermain throws an Epiphany party with a white elephant grab-bag at the end.

Everyone has to bring the "worst gift they received" re-wrapped.

He has a buffet and then hands out numbers or tallies. We pick in order, or, can take what someone has already opened.

Someone got a can of Spinach for Christmas--and someone got that for a re-gift this year. Unbelievable!

Dear BobKat,
Leave it to you to find a philosophy in it! And I think you are right. Personally, I am happy with my trade at the moment!

Thanks for writing in.

Dear The Bug,
I will take a picture! For one thing, my sister needs to know what I got in trade--for another, as Bob said,

I intend to do this up into the crazy!

I think you did very well in trade there.
