Given to Jenny from Andy.

I love saving the day!  In the course of doing this gift exchange, I have been the intermediary that has passed on critically-needed gifts (i.e. a fishing rod and reel, garden water nozzle, etc).  Superman Santa struck again today!  Guess who needed an umbrella?  Jenny!  Guess who gave an umbrella?  Andy!  Jenny had one umbrella, but it is in need of repair and she was actually looking to buy one.  That gave the situation a turbo-boost of excitement when I presented her gift one.

Gift two was a pack of double A batteries that Andy told me like five times to tell the recipient were "dusty, but they work great, so don't worry".  The last gift is a keychain Rubik's cube, which he also advised me to say he solved on his own and, that if the recipient knew what was good for them, they would leave it well enough alone if they wanted order.
