Our youngest son, Aaron, recently had a business trip to Israel. He asked me what I wanted from “the motherland”. Of course I said a teapot but did not expect that he would actually deliver that. Surprise of all surprise when I got a text once he got back stateside saying “Mom , your teapot put me in the super security line and I was worried I was going to miss my flight”. Evidently bubble wrapped teapots raise eyebrows in the Tel Aviv airport. Perhaps it was because he hand carried it through after seeing luggage go shooting down chutes into oblivion. Regardless–last week when I unwrapped the treasure I was thrilled as I am sure you can imagine after you see the pictures. It is beautiful. Thank you, Aaron.
