BudaBaB Guest Honor Roll


We often have guests who have gone above and beyond with their generousity. They have found our Wish list and without asking, have brought us some items from it. Those guests deserve to be honored. Other guests have shared items that are not on our wish list, but have added to the beauty of our home and life. These are here for you to enjoy also during your stay. All of these people are truly special. If you are truly special, you will be honored too.

There are dozens of people who are not here, because they shared long before this list was thought of, but I owe thanks for peanut butter, Bisquik, and at times evaporated milk. If you refresh my memory, I will gratefully add you here. It is not an intentional omission; it is an issue of a poor memory. 

The Wish List has been fully updated. You can find it here. If you want to head directly to the book list, click here. For non-book wishes, you can go direct by clicking here.

Rich and Nancy Fisher - They outdid themselves bringing us 2 containers of Italian breadcrumbs, 3 artichoke products, a jar of peanut butter, 2 bottles of vanilla extract, 5 paperbacks including The Whole Enchilada, which I had been lusting after and the ultimate gift.
