1 Herf-A-Dor by Humi Care (Hell Yeah! My first Herf-a-Dor)


In the note that santa wrote there was mention of a question that is on everyone's mind "WTF is an ewok" So to answer that.

An Ewok is a tribal sentient furred biped native to the moon of Endor. We are curious individuals that stand about one meter tall. We are extremely skilled in forest survival and the construction of primitive technology like spears and catapults. We are quick learners when exposed to advanced technology. So, basicly a midget bear that is vaguely aware, walks upright, and mucks chit up!. ThumpUp

The clue mentioned was "Snowflake" So I am going to guess my SS is my most favorite NON-Millennial ypetryna. I hope I am correct lol.

I can not say thank you enough to my Secret Santa and the Elves. I greatly appreciate everything. I will be posting a Photo!... "Snowflake" LOL LOL LOL


you are correct on your guess....you should just have told everyone to watch the star wars ewok adventure

lol I always loved those things. My wife gets me a few each year. It's become a thing here because I usually get them figured out within 3-5 minutes or so and it pisses her off. She is still in search of one that I can't figure out.

Can't let Hank the Tank die....

My wife went out to water some plants on the front porch this morning, and noticed a crater behind the rocking chair. The postman must have known the valuables in the box and hid it well yesterday. We were babysitting our grand-daughter at her house when the mailman usually delivers. When we didn't respond to the two rings that signals a package delivery, he put it in a spot where it is less visible. We got home last night and entered the house through the garage and didn't see the package tucked in the corner behind the chair.

When I opened it and saw the contents, two thoughts popped up. Holy carp!!! Then, uh oh, it was very dry last night, humidity below 10% ...hope the cigars are ok. Not to worry, the SS packed them in a ziplock with a boveda moisture pack.

I'll do my tech challenged best to post a pic, but here's a description:

a boatload of cigars, 21 total, including some Padrons and some Fuentes and some Cubans and a variety of others. Plus a box of matches from Cigar.com
Gorgeous polished wooden two cigar ashtray with two tones of wood
A 1 lb can of mixed nuts.
A 6 oz bag of Honey Barbecue beef jerky
A whole bunch of candies in a ziplock: Jolly Ranchers, Whoppers, Hersheys Kisses, Starburst, Bottle Caps, taffy, Snickers...

I looked in the box for a clue to the identity of my Secret Santa, and couldn't see anything obvious. There was a sticker of a smiling turd with a Santa hat on, but....could be any one. Then I looked closely at the packing material and noticed what looked like a tank tread pattern on a length of brown paper. Gotta be from Hank the Tank!!!

Nicely done, Brother! Thanks for the tasty and useful gifts and the great selection of cigars. May you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

you are correct

The Mrs has informed me a package arrived from the North Pole. I am returning from a business trip tomorrow so the damage report will have to wait until then. I hope Santa included a long fuse so the bomb can be defused before the house is damaged.

Came home to a smoldering crater where the house once stood. Lots of cigars. Many never hads and wants. Pepper jelly, jerky, peanut brittle a beautiful Bourbon and a UGA shirt. I will tally up the stash and post a full review tomorrow.

Based upon the Georgia theme and the Moultrie specialties, I will guess my Santa is Corey Sellers.

Many thanks for a great selection of cigars and goodies

My daughter's call me at work today to inform me that they had to get into the house through the garage because the porch was nothing but a burning hole in the ground.....but the smoke smelled like cigars. I told them "Yep, that's because Santa has been there!" Bourbon, AF, Diamond Crown, chocolate, a very interesting cigar, and a funny twist. A list of the damage and pic tomorrow.

So, after hours of cleaning the wreckage of my mailbox and front of the building, I managed to sift through the contents and get everything organized. I will get a picture up today, Santa absolutely destroyed me.

Damage as follows:

Knob Creek Small Batch Whiskey

Jekyll Brewing Redneck Christmas Stout
Trimtab Brewing IPA
Goodpeople Brewing Mumbai Rye IPA

Box of matches from Chucks Fish

My Father
Tatuaje Black
Diesel (believe it's the uncut)
Camacho original band
LG Small Batch VI

Four pack of Davidoff Yamasa Toro
Padron Collection Sampler Natural
Box of Joya de Nicaruagua Antano

Santa killed me here. I was looking all over the box for his clue, until I looked at the bubble wrap. Drywall Grid System stickers. That could only be one person. It has to be the madspackler. After this bomb I can see why you say you are mad. Thanks Santa, I don't know where to start first, but I'm looking forward to everything!

My Secret Santa knocked the stuffing out of his Santa suit:

Stuff:
Georgia Bulldog Shirt - love it. Hope the Tide and Dawgs are the final pairing
Muscadine Pepper Jelly
Mayhaw Pepper Jelly - never heard of before - looks amazing
Peanut Brittle
Pork Jerky - will likely disappear as my daughter loves it
Beef Jerky

The Beverage:
Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon - this is a favorite and is always a treat

The Cigars:
Oliva V Melanio Beli - wonderful cigar
R&J CC Short Churchill
Diplomaticos CC Pyramide - nh
Roma Craft Aquitaine Anthropology - nh but wanted to
Roma Craft Aquitaine Mode 5 - nh
Roma Craft Aquitaine Torpedo - nh
RomaCraft CroMAgnon Knuckle Dragger - nh but looks amazing
A. Fuente Short Story
A. Fuente Don Carlos PR Shark?
A. Fuente Chateau Fuente King T
Undercrown Gran Toro
Laranja Volta - wow - have never seen these
LFD 1994
LFD Ligero
LFD Double Ligero (I'm sensing a pattern here)
Sensi Sensational Sarsparilla La Zona

All in all an amazing Gift.

There is a strong Georgia theme with the shirt and goodies. The Jellies and jerky are from a small town in south Georgia - so I am guessing the hit came from Georgia's Finest, Corey Sellers.

Merry Christmas to all the Secret Santas.

This has been a great year of Secret Santa smackdowns. It's the earliest finish by all participants since I've been involved. Everybody did a great job, and so the troops will benefit. Well done, gentlemen. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and all your families.


A special thank you to TZ, the head Santa, for organizing and executing this event.
