Please use this thread to post thanks for the RAOK gifts, wishes granted, and anything else you are thankful for here on PBS.  Let's try to keep the ***RAOK*** and ***I Wish*** threads easier to check for wishes to grant and goodies to request.

Note: please be sure to thank people who grant your RAOK wishes. It's not necessary to do it here in the thread if you prefer to PM to let the sender know you received your gifts. Unfortunately, things do get lost in the mail. In addition, senders have mentioned that they have not heard from the people they have sent things to, and wonder if the items have been received. We hesitate to keep sending to someone who does not acknowledge gifts. If someone declines your request, that may be the reason.  Senders contact me in frustration, saying that they do not know if items are received and that it is usually the same people who do not correspond. Most have decided not to send to those requestors again. It is sad, but necessary to them. Please respond in some way.

If you have questions, please feel free to PM me and ask.  And thanks for using this thread to say Thank You to our wonderful wish granters.

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who used the December Thank You thread (and the preceding months' threads) or private PMs to thank the kind people who sent out RAOKs or fulfilled I Wish wishes.  The senders have big hearts but not necessarily big budgets, and it's little enough to ask that their generosity be acknowledged.  Be kind - thank your senders!
And may everyone have a happy and healthy New Year!

Thanks to Claire for sharing the fireworks.......I am only 'mid-tech', not high tech so adding photos can be a challenge for me!

Thank you's go out to Stephanie S., Sandi B., and Mona for looking out for other members.  I put out a question about someone who was looking for something and all three came to the rescue.  Mona contacted the person and let her know and she contacted me.  Stephanie and Sandi let me know who it was also.  The fabric is now on its way to a new owner.  Thank you for caring for each other!heart

I was just in the CMT forum & answered a question Jeanne posted about "What was your fave Christmas gift this year".  Mine came from a dear friend here in the RAOK, Katherine N. (kimberlyrav).  She sent me an awesome care package of Christmas goodies, which included a Tiki head that is solar-powered - the mouth lights up when the lights go off!  I LOVE IT and thought you guys would like to see it, too!! Check it out here: http://tinypic.com/m/jr91eb/2

Thank you  Katherine N. (kimberlyrav) for such a cool gift that surprises me with light every day when the sun goes down! 

And thank you to everyone here in the RAOK for all the cool Tiki items you've sent me over the years.  Every item, big or small, makes the Tiki Room such a special place heart
