The hidden hazards of regifting.

The hidden hazards of regifting.

So a few days ago, I wrote a little post about gift cards, and I showed off my secret stash of paper and plastic tickets to paradise.  Well, shortly after I put up the post, I was inspired to take stock of my collection and realized that this Christmas, I had received a $50 gift certificate to go see a show at a local theater.

Dover Author Publishes New Book

A young girl, spending many of her growing-up years in a boardinghouse with her aunt and uncle, forms a special relationship with her fellow boarders. This extended family of hers can’t help but influence the girl’s outlook on living, on learning, and on loving. From her youth, she views the characters around her with awe and bewilderment, love and respect, and sometimes-even disdain.
Her interaction with the group, along with stories of the small town where the house is located, paints a vivid picture—one that is sure to give the reader a real glimpse into basic human nature and embraces the good and, certainly, the not so good. And while the story takes place in “the olden days,” there comes the realization that people today are pretty much still the same.

A resident of Dover, New Hampshire, Geraldine Sylvester is retired after serving in state government for three different governors.
