Your Holiday Gift List

Posted December 1, 2009 9:11 a.m. EST

What’s on your holiday gift list?  What do you really want Santa to bring this year?

The person who comes up with the most unique holiday gift list will receive a prize. I will give the winner a choice of either my coffee table book Blue Ridge Reunion or two of my CDs.

I hate to admit this but I’ve got some expensive items on my wish list and I really don’t know if I’ve been good enough this year! A macro lens for my Canon camera would be great. Plus, I really need to move into the modern era and get a Blackberry or I-Phone. Other than Monica I may be the only person in the newsroom without one. In addition, I heard a Santa Cruz guitar played by William Coulter the other day. The sound was absolutely fabulous and I’d like to get one of those guitars. Santa, I’m willing to sell one of my old guitars for a Santa Cruz which sounds like a reindeer courier service. I only have three guitars in my collection. As for my Celtic whistle collection – I’m set. I think I have one in every key possible.

If all of that is too expensive some new gym clothes, running shoes and white handkerchiefs will do just fine, Santa.

Now, what is your holiday gift list?
