I received a four-pack of Trillium Pilsner and a sticker from them today. They are from LadyWrites, and based on the note, I think I am to expect an additional item. The beer is already in the fridge, although I will probably wait until after Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow to try it.

Thank you!!! I'm very excited to try it!

So glad it arrived! Very difficult sending beer to Pennsylvania. Drizly wouldnt do it, my local craft brewer wouldnt do it and it is against the law to send it via USPS. I finally found an agreeable brewery. Enjoy it Kip!

Two more deliveries are en route. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I will be offline till Friday.

Try buying decent wine or liqueurs here!

State run liquor stores are an abomination.

It is challenging to send beer to PA so I appreciate that you found a brewery that would

Happy Thanksgiving!

That is a shame. Any reason I have to be in New England, I find a justification to hit the state run stores in New Hampshire. Its like a candy store for adults. Anything and everything you could imagine with friendly people to help you at real discount prices.

I landed back home from a trip to the Philippines and had a couple of my SS gifts already arrive. Thanks much to my SS who I assume is from Pennsylvania based on the gifts. I will put them to good use cooking this year.

We have had lots of heavy rain and wind leading to impatient delivery drivers leaving parcels outside. Ive been lucky and managed to save my two wonderful gifts. Apparently I have a third (WHAT!? Im truly being spoiled) tried to re deliver today but took me too long to get to the door I think due to being a bit poorly.
My WONDERFUL secret Santa and I have been in contact and hopefully all will be resolved.
Anyone who gets MY Santa in future will be enormously happy. I shant out them just yet incase they want to stay secret.

Happy thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates x

Been sick the past couple of days so sorry for the late upload - the package was from my secret santa - whoever you are - thank you so far!

I have been spoilt

Gift number two on its merry way. Unfortunately the webshop tricked me a bit, so the receipient will also receive an order confirmation and receipt via email. But hey that can then be the surprise....

I did try to warn my santee not to read that email....

Black Friday in the US is a good time to manage a santa shipment to a santee in the US. Trying to avoid international shipping charges. That makes gift number three managed.

Did anyone send me a vintage mystery novel purchased off eBay? One arrived today, and I know nobody here ordered it, and there's no indication of who it came from.

If so, thank you!

Received a box of various teas and different coffees and a really cool 3D printed tea bag holder from a santa in Virginia. Thank you
