TheReporterandTheGirlNew post A Birthday Gift

Hugh Paxton’s Blog is relieved on two counts.

One the present arrived.

Two TheGirl likes it.

Normally when I send a present it doesn’t arrive. While living in Namibia there was a fairly consistent pattern. A 12 year pattern. I’d send something. Nobody would get it. They’d send something, we wouldn’t get it. The most extraordinary failing to get it incident involved the vanishing act of 12,000 slides accumulated after travel through eighty or so countries. Somebody (probably in Hosea Kutako airport) had obviously seen a tempting package, looted it, then just thrown the lot away in disgust after seeing it only contained a bunch of pictures. Or 15 years work. But he or she wouldn’t have known that.

But! And here is the pertinent point! TheGirl got a Paxton present. The mail did get through!

This inspires me to further effort! Christmas is coming! I shall resume sending!

Hugh

A Birthday Gift

by TheGirl

I received this beautiful Jim Thompson scarf, by a fellow blogger and follower of my series for my birthday that recently passed.

Big shout out and thank you to Hugh Paxton for this beautiful gift from Thailand, where he is currently staying and blogging about. You can visit Hugh’s blog here.

    And it’s gorgeous! I love the scarf, it’s the most thoughtful gift I received this year. Thank you again for thinking of me to try mailing something.

      Suits you! Remember my advice! Thais believe crawling under an elephant or an image or depiction of an elephant brings good luck. Get crawling under your scarf. Next birthday I’ll send you something different (probably a silk scarf) involving elephants! Cheers from Bangkok! Hugh
