    The tube sock snowman is going to be a hit with the other Christmas ornaments .
    Mrs. Carano is out of town , I will surprise her with some when she return home . I called Eloise to ask if she know when she will return,she said they was leaving Seattle Saturday 11:30am and has a stopover in Dallas .
    Ms. Jeannie , I will make one change, I will use packing pellets instead of rice .I get a lot of them in the shipments I recieve in my orders and they don't cost anything .
    I will also buy socks in different sizes .
    Ms. Jeannie you have great ideas , thank you .

    The pellets are a much better idea and will survive over time much better. And the best thing is that they are free and you are recycling ...Hahaha. I love that.
    I like that you are using different size socks also. It's good to give folks a choice.
    You are a marvel Della...Jeannie
