My most unusual present

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

The thing about the holidays is ... you never know quite what will happen.

My sister-in-law, Carolyn, LOVES to knit.  She has knitted Mr. L socks; me hat and scarf; little white ghosts for Halloween, and now ... an ALLIGATOR!

Yes, a quite frightening alligator.  The tag on the package she sent from Florida say, "This may BITE."  Whoa!

And, wow -- how cool is this scarf she knitted?

Our boy, Fred, went NUTS when he discovered our Christmas Crock. He kneaded the gator's back and then flew across the room and bounced off the walls a couple of times.  (Whew! We're always glad when he finally calms down.)

What was the most unusual thing YOU got for Christmas???
