I have the football.

Best smelling pass ever. Dog is intrigued. Box put on high shelf as a result.

Hey, Bob--thanks for the Grape. I'm going to try it in a minute when the plumbers done cutting an access point in my stack. I figured it's been a crappy enough day, this could be the turning point!

Box pass will go out tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. Delightful experience!

Someone please try the 3-p-goat coffee, and offer a report. My brother in law gave it to me, since to him it was disgusting. It was a gift to him, I don't know where from. I ground a few beans; it seems a much lighter roast than I prefer, and thus requires much less water, but to me tastes like McDonald's coffee.

By the way, I'm out of Monks Blend, and so is our local Rao's. It's a good tea if you can locate some somewhere.

Surprise five inches of snow and still coming. Digging out. Box pass is unharmed.

I have the football, which is to say that I will get to look as soon as Mrs. UB and The Girl let me.

That's the best part of this box pass. For once, my wife is as excited as I am. Although she had full on culture shock that Brigid didn't like green tea.
Wait, A box pass that the spouse likes? Inconceivable...

Indeed. I'm an idiot. I mailed it to myself, which flagged the postal inspectors, and then the search dog hit on it. I have it back now and will liberally improve it and mail it out tomorrow.

Embarrassing.

Apparently the search dogs like tea, too.

Must have been someone put some of that weird mushroom tea in that box. Wasn't me.

I have now sent a box of tea and other things to Brigid to complete the Box Pass.

I was just recently wondering whatever happened to this.

I have the football! And oh, what a box it is. Winton and all of you, you've outdone yourselves.

The darlin' child desperately wants my attention (mama what is that glowbox and why can't I steal the mouse) so I have to type quick. 12 types of tea including a rooibos I tried instantly, 2 flavors of cocoa, and some Peterson Dublin coffee that looks fantastic. Also a lovely rose-patterned teacup (which of you fellas knew I collect teacups?) and cream & sugar set. I'm very touched by a handturned wooden tamper that came with some toasted cavendish I'm very excited to savor.

This was fun, y'all. Thanks to UB for organizing it. I've missed getting to do things with you guys, and I sure wish I could make it to Chicago to see you all this weekend, so getting a CPS package makes me feel like I'm there, in a way.
