Worst:summer sausage still shake my head at that


As a side gift, my family always gets the children summer sausage and hickory farms sweet and sour sauce. Then we all cut it up and microwave it and it is a delicious treat. It is not our main gift, but it is a nice treat we all look forward to each year.

My worst is an R&B cd a friend got me...I like about everything but Rap, R&B, and Opera.

I've had a lot of 'bests', so I hate to say just one. Worst: My stepmom got me a yoga dvd that was titled something like "Lose Weight With Yoga". The lose weight part was really not appreciated, even though I wasn't heavy at the time.

Best: XM radio or my quilting machine w/frame Worst: an ugly wall-clock from an aunt of mine. This, after she had been to our new house and asked where I was going to hang a clock in the spare bathroom. I explained that I wasn't going to, didn't think it was necessary, etc. So she specifically writes on the gift tag/card that I was supposed to put this clock in the bathroom, and that she'd be "checking up on" me to make sure it was there. The clock went to the Salvation Army and she hasn't been to our house since then.

MIL thought it would be great to give my daughter a pair of green & purple socks from the Children's Place with the price tag of 99cent still on the tag. I know it's the thought that counts, and she was able to wear them proudly. :o in the dirt :shock: JUST KIDDING ABOUT THE DIRT!

Worst.... The used baskets my sister in law gave me for the last 3 years for EVERY holiday... bday and christmas. I know they were Longabeger... but they werent in great shape... and my house is done in Ducks and Dogs... no froo froo baskets.... lol.. I used them to put paper plates in... but... I finally traded them to my cousin (who collects the baskets) for her gently used entertainment center to hold my new tv... so in the end it turned out to be the best gift.
:cool:Won't catch me without my FANCY PANTS!!!
