Gifts from Afar

I received a prize in the mail yesterday, and the prize came all the way from Australia. Maybe I should call this a gift instead of a prize because according to the sender I did NOT actually win. The provider of my gifts is none other than the famous Willowtree, keeper of the A Dingo's Got My Barbie. Visitors to his blog are regaled with adventurous multi-part stories, delighted with pictures and videos of his pets, and entertained by his snarky wit. Additonally, WT offers technical advice to his readers. He tells about feeds, picture tricks, and other essential blogging details. If you are not familiar with A Dingo's Got My Barbie, stop by for a visit. Be sure to read the comments as that is definitely part of the fun.


By the way, my gifts consist of a very large Australian flag and two keychains depicting money of Australia. Thank you...WT.



Maybe these gifts along with Willowtree's instructive hints will help me improve my Sunday score on Willowtree's Trivia contest, which is just another feature of his awesome blog.

Cheese and rice! That flag really is big (going by the fold marks), I've never opened one up. It must be really thin.

I look forward to seeing your score go up, I always find the Aussie questions so hard.

You can use the flag as a curtain on your living room window. :) And now you know what the money looks like if you decide to visit/ :)

I thought that currency looked awfully familiar, LOL. What agreat friend you have to send you such wonderful gifts. It gives me ideas to send to friends afar....especially when I think.."Ohh, I will send my friend in Korea a cute little soft toy Koala for Christmas"....only to look at the tag and see MADE IN KOREA!!!
Atleast we know the flag and the money IS made Down Under!! Right? LOL
