I remember I used to send Christmas gift to Dot ( Department of Thunder) using things that I purchased at Halloween. The one that stands out had a remote control arm triggered by movement. Covered it up with popcorn for shipping. If you touch the box the arm would move. Dorthy liked to beat me too death with the arm. Was the most comical thing to see.

The memory that I cherish the most is when I went into labor with my daughter, I told my family I had to wait on Dorothy before I could got to the hospital. So my labor pains were about 10 minutes apart when we arrived at the hospital. I will miss you!
