Oh, I don't know, I wouldn't necessarily mind a trip to China.
That's what's coming up for us, too, the 20th.

Ahah, Helen, I never thought of it that way! A trip to China! (although
in my case a trip to Japan would be just a tad more welcome, grin)

Our list said fruit and/or flowers, so Rich got me a vintage coral
dress with a black lace over dress in a floral pattern for our fourth
anniversary. Seventh is wool.

Oh well. I guess you're stuck, then. Of course there's always hope that
there will be a new China Bayles mystery to buy.
