Glad you are all excited about it!  I think I did this one twice...I remember once clearly.lol  If you joined a previous round, who did you partner with? Did you learn a lot about them? Was there anything super funny or exciting that your learned or did?

I partnered with EdelC and the more we talked, the more we found similarities in our lives.  It was funny and weird.lol  I just adore her!  I feel like we had a great time and she's from a lovely place with lots of history, which I love, so I enjoyed getting some things from there.  I sent her some US items that she had never heard of or seen.  The best one was when I asked if she could use a 'rubber husband'.lololol  I didn't think when I asked, it's what we call the little rubber grippy thing for opening jars, because it's rubber and generally you get your husband to open jars.
