In college, we drew names and did Secret Santa, we tried to put something once a week for 4 weeks in the person's mailbox. It was fun. Expecially trying to find out more about the person without letting the person know you were his/her Santa so you could buy nice things. While you're trying to figure out what to buy for someone, some one else is trying to figure out what to buy for you. It's fun. So have you ever participated in Secret Santa?

We spent like a buck at the five and dime. I've heard of places where it can't be over 10 bucks. At least 15, that must be some towel. Are you a beech person or do you like showers? Ha, ha

For the both of you, our limit was ten dollars but then that was about thirty years ago.

I think I did it once but it was so long ago, and I think it was when I was in my twenties and was working. I have no idea whether it was at the jewelry store or at the clothings store, but we were given a name of who to buy for, and I have no idea what I bought or what the other person bought for me. I did hear about gift exchanges but well, as you know, I do not take notes and my memory of the past has been selective because when I have a traumatic experience, everything around that date, I forget and I only remember --it might have been at the auto rebuilder place, just now.

Yes, it's is hard to remember decades ago. I have some things that I can't remember because of traumatic experiences, too. I forgot the first half of a college semester and had to relearn it for the second half. Ended up with just passing grades and it lowered my overall college gpa. Part of why I've had trouble getting a job. They want 3.0 or higer and I have 2.8 because of 2.0 in everything during that sememester. Take care
