My Package From South Africa

 Our package from Samuel and Wallace arrived finally after visiting almost all of the lower forty eight states.  Yep the package took the scenic route.  Yep it was traveling down the road and back again because it had the wrong zip code.  I enlisted the help of my Post Office to catch it an bring it back to Nati City.
 This box is deep.  But I can smell what I want so I knows it is in here somewhere.
They sent them to me last year and I told them they are the bestest treats I ever had.  Why I smell them and I start to drool.

  There they are.  They sent me the Billtongs.
Sure wish they sold them in the States.
Sammy & Wally say sometimes you have to order them and yep they ordered them special for me.
  Our gifts are wrapped in the prettiest Christmas paper.
And they wrote a long note telling us on what days to open the packages why that took time to write and I cannot follow it because Christmas is over.
I'm not going to wait till next Christmas Eve to start.
  I got a gingy reindeer stuffie and the billtongs.  I am so excited I just can't hide it! 
  Lee got a giraffe print wonderful pink scarf.  Why pink is her second favorite color.  A mini iced fruitcake which had raisins, I wanted a bite but I didn't get it.  It was a moist fruit cake and was doused in liquior so it was really good.  The icing had kind of an anise flavor but that was not listed as being in the fruitcake.  It is ALL GONE!
Lee has not tried the fruit bar nor has she tried the Milo.  But she will.
  Then we got a marvelous tote.  They read about our neighbor taking the Sumatran rhino home the tote says "FOR HIM, YOU CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE".
I, Sweet William The Scot, am telling you to stop NOW! 
Why lookie the Christmas Card even has a Rhino on the front.
Sammy and Wally are so co-ordinated.
Please remember to say a pray for their Oumie she is having a chemo
 treatment tomorrow and the last one made her really feel terrible, her bones just ached and ached.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine

  7. Wow..... what a great package. Ok... I have to ask... what is a Billtong?
    Pees.... thank you for posting my StuART badge.

    1. Biltong is the most important cullinary substance in South Africa. Why these are like ground up pieces of jerky and put in a paste like and baked. Shaped like a Milkbone kind of looks like a Milkbone but it has real Jerky ground into it. I just drool for these treats and they are not sold in the States.
      Yep I will be part of you StuART blog hop ~ I will be hoppin along with you.
