printersdevil....i'd love to be involved, just let me know ...

Okay guys, I have a question. My older sister is one of my biggest Halloween supporters. She is always with me when I am out thrifting and is always on the lookout for things for me. She is my right arm in decorating and helping me host my parties especially the Be WITCHY one. Anyway she has had a rough few years with her husband being confined to a nursing home for the past almost 3 years and finally losing him in February. Then her health crashed and she has been in the hospital several times since then. She is on the mend now and looking and doing like herself again.

We just got her moved into a bigger place and I have spent everyday with her for the past three to four weeks helping her unpack and decorate. Today we were working on her very ample Christmas and other decorations trying to organize them and store them with easy access. She looked at me and said, "I wish I could be in one of those Reaper things. I wish I knew people to do something like that with where we could do it without a computer."

She doesn't use a computer and doesn't even have or want a smart phone. She went one to remind me of years ago the year that our daddy died when we did numerous swaps on other boards. Barbara, my younger sister, my daughter and I all took part in an Advent Swap where you did 25 gifts for someone. Daddy's health crashed around Thanksgiving and we spent all of December with him in the hospital. Every evening we all had a small package from a virtual stranger to help us get a little joy out of the season.

She said that that was such a wonderful outlet during our grief and she was right. She went on to point out that although she decorates for all other holidays, she has never done much for Halloween since we do so much at my place and she is such a big part of it. Again the past three falls she was really tied down with my BIL in the nursing home, too.

This got me to thinking about how neat it would be to have a Secret Reaper for her as a surprise. Would anyone object to my doing that? I would gladly take on sending out the gift for her to her victim. The only problem that I have is how to go about this. Since she does not "do computers" I don't know how to go about it. I could get all the info added for her and even do a screen name. The downfall would be that there would be no history of posts to stalk and there would not be a lot to add to. I definitely don't want to spoil the fun for someone because I know that the stalking and the hunt for info is much of the fun. However, I would gladly add any info for her potential Reaper that they wanted to know. I could sort of be the "proxy" for her. Is this dumb? Too much of burden for you guys? Unacceptable?

If this was done, I would not tell her a thing about it until the Reaper package arrived in order to surprise her. I would be willing to answer questions directly from her potential Reaper or whatever was needed. Just a thought and something that I think would be a great way to help her get through the upcoming seasons that will be so difficult being the first of all the holidays without her husband of almost 49 years. They would have celebrated their 49th anniversary on July 31.

She is truly starting over with a new home, and I thought this would be fun for her. Some of you weigh in on this and let me know what you think and how it might be best done if it is agreeable for me to do this.

Some people send goodies, either bought or homemade, in their boxes...just be sure to stalk your victim well and read lots of posts to see if they have ever talked about things they can't eat, won't eat, are allergic to/diabetic....or some people say not to send candy/chocolate because it's too hot where they live and it will melt before it gets there in the mail. The whole melting thing goes for candles, too. Just stalk your victims well before you make your box and you will be fine.
thanks so much, questions answered.....
