As I said I did receive a med/large box, but I haven't sent mine out yet, so I have been making myself wait to open the box...it is sitting near the tree and it calls to me...

I had to get grumpy with a company I ordered from for part of the gift I'm sending out, I've been on the phone twice with them now. This time they promised to expedite the shipping for free... we'll see...

My Santa has had some grief on my behalf. I'm sorry and am grateful for your efforts, Santa!

Glad everything arrived ok. I thought Curt did a great job on the Mustang pipe. Enjoy it and your holidays.

I got the last two items for my sleigh to take off. I will get the reindeer fed up and get it up in the air. Then I get to open the box Santa sent me.

I haven’t been on much lately, but never fear, SS person, Santa has been in his workshop. Just another trip to the shop or two and all will be finished...

Woo! It came over the weekend. Just one more finishing touch and the sleigh will be sent out this week!

I sent out part 1 of mine today. I hope to do a part 2 yet but work and baby might prevent that from happening until March or so. I think they'll enjoy part 1 still :)

Well my boxes are filled and labeled and will ship this afternoon, so I gave in and opened the box that came from my Secret Santa. The return address was no help, but the post mark is North Carolina, that and the Sam's Blend tobacco leads me to guess that Irish-Dane is the Secret Santa for this box.

I have been longing for some real tobacco flavor since I have been wandering through the topped blends in my cellar for too long now...these two tobaccos are perfect! The duck sauce is already gone...we had stir-fry for dinner last night. The chess set and the metal cup are destined for the cabin. Thank you so much Secret Santa.

PS my wife grabbed the box and said it would be perfect for a project she wants to do for the cabin...so I drank the whisky.

PSS The Squadron Leader has some age on it...I will take pics and provide thoughts when I decide to open it.

My packages are both on their way - mailed one last week, got the second one off today. :wavey:
