How about books, a little naughty but nice?
Such sweet, spicy sugarplums
They'll want to read them twice!

As chronicled in my previous post (see post from 12/9/2020, "The Mystery Of The Roses), five days ago I received a dozen-and-a-half beautiful white roses with a condolence card for the recent passing of my mother,
Then the night before last I found this envelope taped to the front door:
Amazing how sometimes we miss what should have been so obvious.
Anyway, there's more to the story. As it turns out, I was not the first one to learn the identity of the mystery white rose gifters.
My sister-in-law, Randy's mother Mary Jane,
Now, many people know that Sam's club sells flowers in bulk - for weddings, for example. In fact my daughter Claire ordered her wedding flowers from Sam's Club (see her wedding posts posts from 5/1/2014 - 5/9/2014). Here's a picture of my me cutting the Sam's Club flowers at Claire's mother-in-law's house in Wickenburg, Arizona, Wickenburg being where the wedding took place.
And so as soon as Mary Jane read my blog about the roses having come from from Sam's Club, she had a hunch who'd sent them. She called Randy and he confirmed that it was, in fact, he and Anusha who had sent me the roses. They decided to let the mystery percolate for another couple of days just for fun and to see if anyone else would guess. Nobody did, though my daughter Maria probably came closest.
Still, it was, in fact, a sweet, funny moment when Anusha and Randy sprung the surprise. But one sweet surprise deserves another, so last night Randy and Anusha likewise found a surprise on their front porch. ;)
