What's under the boxes (two) of Gardner's Candy




What's under the boxes (two) of Gardner's Candy





The intent is not for Paul to eat all of this ... I’m sending all of this so that Paul will have an Easter basket, but also so that the other sailors who won’t receive baskets will also get to share in the goodies. When I sent Paul’s Girl Scout Cookies to him (12 boxes of Thin Mints), he shared with bunches of sailors, and still had plenty for himself.

The back-story:

During my first year of college, my roommate (Sherri) and I decided to stay in DuBois for the weekend instead of coming home (a whole 20 miles one way!) — we each had big reports due within a few days after Easter, and decided that we really *should* work on them instead of waiting until the very last minute, and we knew that we wouldn’t work on them if we went home for the weekend (at least we were honest with ourselves about that). Easter Sunday we went to church and then went out to eat (Hoss’s) and returned to our apartment. Shortly after we returned, there was a knock on the door, and when we opened it up, there was a large wicker laundry basket with a card on top that had my name. The Easter Bunny didn’t forget me. Now, in the laundry basket was everything a college girl needs --- Tuna Helper, cans of tuna, shampoo, conditioner, panty hose, bubble bath, perfume, jewelry, ramen noodles, macaroni and cheese, candy, hair ribbons, barrettes, etc. Mom, Aunt Edna and cousin Mandy came out from around the stairwell at that point, and we had a nice visit for about an hour before they went back to Clearfield.

The next year, as Easter was approaching, Sherri was telling our new roommate (Laramie) about the basket that I got the year before. Sherri and I again stayed Easter weekend so that we could work on projects that would soon be due, and also to keep Laramie company — she was from Philadelphia, and it wasn’t feasible for her to return to Philly and back over the weekend. Sure enough, there was a knock on the door, and there were Easter Baskets (laundry baskets) on the porch — this year, smaller baskets, but one for each of us! Again they held things that college girls needed, including many items mentioned above, and more! This time we hadn’t gone out to church/lunch, so Mom, Aunt Jean, Irene (Renie) and we three girls all piled into the car (thank goodness Mom drove a land-boat!) and went out to lunch.

While I can’t hand-deliver large baskets, I hope to carry on this ‘tradition’ for Paul.
