So What Was In The Box?

My last post alluded to a package being sent to me in the mail from a blogging friend.  I asked the question, "I wonder what it could be?"  If you read through the comments on the post you will see that several of my blogging friends had suggestions on what it could be.

Everything from  a new fly tying vise with a built in light, left over cookies from Howard, carved or stuffed fish, a "Leg" lamp, fresh trout caught last week for dinner the day they arrive, something Italian that may or may not be ticking, a glass plaque to commemorate the sense of the outdoor blogging community, and, I am sure a few ideas that never got posted on the blog.

Well, yesterday the package came.  I was excited to see what was in the box.
 Certainly "fragile", all right.  Lots of bubble pack air package to keep things from moving around much.
Ok, buried in the box somewhere it says "RD's Special Cookies".  Yes, I am the Cookie Monster, and, I am going to dig them out, now!
Oh, how I like Cookies! Neatly wrapped in colorful paper with ribbon that could be used for Flashback Nymphs, were Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal, and Snickerdoodles.  Emily, graciously, had sent enough for me and my wife, plus, all my grandchildren.  I was more than happy to give them the taste test and deliver a package to each pod of grandchildren I have.
 RD's Special Cookies get the "Thumbs Up" Award from the folks here at Pond Stalker Headquarters.
 RD, thank you so much for your time and effort and demonstrating to us all the sense of community amongst us Outdoor Bloggers.  Be sure and take care of you for me.

    What I can't figure out is why fragile stamped on the package? I would think RD's cookies are just as good crumpled up as whole. The oatmeal would have to be my favorite. Mel forget about the calories and enjoy those cookies. Thanks for sharing

    1. Yup, Bill, had to set aside any plans for losing weight for a few days. I guarantee you they tasted just as good chewed up in little pieces, fragile or not!
      Chocolate Chip, and, Snickerdoodles, were really good also.

      You will have to ask RD about why fragile while you are dropping a few hints for cookies back your way!

  3. Glad they made it safely there... not so safe anymore though, I'm afraid! Glad they got the thumbs up. Enjoy the treat and you are very welcome.

    1. RD, if Howard and I have anything to say, your cookies will become fly fishing blog famous. Soon, you will be shipping "RD's Special Cookies" all over the fly fishing world. Tee Hee!

      Take care and enjoy your fall fishing.

    1. Those fish still have not arrived and I am getting more hungry each day for a mess of fish. RD's Special Cookies were terrific, and, no doubt she is sweeter than Mark. Heck of a lot better looking, too!

    1. Atlas, me thinks you should have some cookies, too! Especially those "RD Special Snickerdoodles"! Hope RD reads these comments, she just might be busy all winter shipping cookies to all of her blogging friends.
