Seriously. And here's why...
Big heavy box. Very heavy.
A collaborative gift from Madman and our two daughters.
The only marking on the box was an address in Oklahoma. No help there.
Finally got one end of the box open. I could see wood, but couldn't get the object out of the box.
Did I mention it was heavy?
So I cut open the other end, and pushed.
What the? A coffin for garter snakes?
But wait. Let's get a closer look at the interesting end. I had an inkling at this point. Do you?
Open the latch, lift the lid, and...
It's a handmade wool picker. And not the scary pendulum kind. (You know, the do-it-yourself mastectomy kit.)
Best. Present. Ever.
Now I've just got to go wash some more fleece...
