A giftie from Diana!
Diana Gabaldon sent me this lovely gift basket of dates from the Sphinx Date Co. in Scottsdale, AZ, where she lives.
Here's the inscription on the card accompanying them:
The card reads, "Dear Karen, Happy Holidays to a great nitpicker and a very good friend! Love, Diana". Isn't that sweet of her? I'm delighted that she values our friendship as much as I do. ("Nitpicker" is a reference to the fact that I pay close attention to things like dates and character names in the books.)
The dates look yummy and I'm sure I'll enjoy them very much. <g>
Thank you, Diana!! And Merry Christmas!
