Re: OT: birthday pox?

Dear Jan,
Thanks so much for the kind thoughts.  Yes, it is true, these pox suck! You are one of the only people who offered sympathy for my state, and it was well received!  I know that probably sounds strange coming from a guy, but when you feel this bad, and all your friends and relatives just laugh when you tell them you have the chicken pox, a little sympathy from someone goes a long way.
I did not expect you to send any cookies in return for the ones I had sent you.  However, I forgot to include my note to you mentioning such with the box.  Those were just so you could have a snack that does not have nuts in it.  I had just baked them and they were simply the run of the mill nestle toll house recipe cookies.
I WILL be baking cookies as soon as I am well and will make sure to get some "proper" holiday cookies. 
I do like cookie exchanges with those who make a cookie that is traditional for their families, because many of them go way back.  I also enjoy ones that are made up by people, for they present the opportunity for variety.  My neighbor just gave me some Kringla cookies which are a tradition in her family dating back to her Norwegian ancestors. I was supposed to help her make them this year, but the pox got in the way.  She gave me the recipe however, so I will try it and have her oversee if I am making them right. 
Talk at ya later!
