Received my package this week

Hello,
I am happy to report I received my package this week. I received a pair of gift cards (dining and movies). Thank you, Redhead

They will come in to good use this holiday season. There are several movies that I am looking forward to seeing.

Wharvey,
I sent you a PM.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
-Sandra

Dear Participants,

I updated Post #2 to show how many assignments each of you should have received.

Please verify the number matches what you received.

I had a few people reach out to me... and it looks like a few PMs did not get delivered... and they are from the same date... I have no way of knowing which ones... since they all show as sent in my inbox...

Please let me know if there are any issues.

Thanks!

Curiosity got the better of me now that our tree is up and it's technically December now.

Santa (Avery) brought me a very nice TUMI packing cube. I've already got great plans for this guy.

Thank you Santa for the very useful gift

Yes that would be me! I hope you enjoyed your gifts! The spices are absolutely amazing. We cant use any other these days - Sorry if that is the case for you.

Those treats are Lacey's fav as well. She refuses all others.

Merry Christmas!

I loved them! I don't know if the IPA glasses are from you, or another Santa? I love the spices, and am going to dive into using them this weekend. I've decided the box is going to be my storage for all of my mixes/loose spices.

Mauser devoured the soft treats--he loved them so much that twice, he pulled bags (a sandwich bag of them and the actual treat bag) from the kitchen table and chewed through the bags to get to the treats!

I cannot take credit for the IPA Glasses. Another Santa is responsible for that. Mauser has excellent taste

I am glad you can use the box. I just love them for storage in the home!

Mauser does have excellent taste, as does Lacey!

I think I probably need to get more of those boxes.

I have my first gift....from adampenrith in Australia....

A 767-300 Model of VH-OGJ in Australian colors....that's the Qantas subsidiary that preceded JetStar, not the airline merged into Qantas.

It is in my guest room on display with a Pacific Blue 737 and a Horizon Q400.

How many days after your gift is delivered do you wait to get nervous that something happened? My gift was delivered Wednesday and I haven't heard from my recipient. I've seen him post other gifts he's recieved.

You can check to see if they've been active since then, and perhaps wharvey or HeadElf53 can PM the recipient to see if they've received it. They may be out of town.

Thank you SS #2 for the two Lonely Planet Books and the other gift which should do wonders for my appearance (some men's skin care products .... the sun is pretty harsh down here and at my age, I need all the help I can get. Best Wishes.
