Imagine their surprise when a package arrived at my house addressed to them?
And I thought, "Look at this. Mr. Jay and Billy Jays receive a Christmas gift!"
As neither was home at the time, I had to call them to let them know it was here.
Excited, both rushed home to open it.
Not knowing who it was from (no name or return address), the detective work began.
The package came with a note! Mysteriously the note was not signed, but contained numerous clues. Who could it be from?
The greeting is in red and green, very holidayish. Christmassy almost! The giver appears to be from Wisconsin. And it is signed in purple! Now who uses purple when they communicate with people? Apparently it isn't just one giver! The givers are a couple!
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS? I can tell you the boys were stumped. For sure I knew who it was from. But they are still pondering. Even now, a day later!
Interestingly, the decor for the tree was wrapped with ribbons that are Redskin colors! How nice!
They liked it immediately and put it on the tree. Showing me the spot, under the Redskin emblem and Redskin Santa, they were very proud of the new ornament.
I had to point out that the "tree decor," as they called it, having read the note, was probably inside the wrapping!
Some people you really have to hold by the hand.
Unwrapping it they found an unusual ornament. Colors that just don't go with anything. It has GREEN matched with gold! Everyone knows that only burgundy goes with gold! Well, at least I thought so. And it has a nutcracker appearance, but surely can't crack any nuts. To me it kind of looks kind of like Snidely Whiplash!
It just didn't have a Redskin feel, and as you all know we Redskin fans are all just SO proud this year...
So they put it on the tree, in the same spot.
For some reason, the Mystery Givers sent us an ornament that was made upside down!
I didn't understand it either.
But there it is! On our tree! In honor of the season and the Mystery Givers!
We all thank them both for the wonderful, and well-received, surprise!
I have to tell you that it made my day!
The boys are still stumped, but that's alright.
Thank you to the Mysterious Wisconsiners! This was very appreciated and really will stay on our tree. We still don't understand why you sent an upside down ornament, but we receive it in the gracious spirit it was given nonetheless!
