Planning on shipping mine out this weekend - My appendix decided to blow up last week so I have been laid up for the past 7 days. Hoping to get the green light to start driving again tomorrow.
Been there; it's no fun. Get better.

Ardents spotted - do you need help? I mean there's always a solution, really.
Did you see that he rides a crabon frame in the daylight? Strong indications of suicidal tendencies already.... :D

Secret Santa gift delivered (in person even). Haley had way too much fun putting it together and helping to pick out items. Pretty much the best ss option available. I'll let @Nick post up if he hasn't dug into it yet. Btw, I have one more piece for you when I see you next.

Went out yesterday, hopefully packaging is not too overkill. Looks like FedEx says will arrive Friday.

Nope, it just bugs me is all. I see that USPS has a few packages for me today, if they get here early I may still be able to do it all in one package.
not SS related, but I placed an order with one company over a week ago, paid for UPS Next Day shipping, and the order shipped in three individual packages 4 days later, all arriving while I'm out of town so the neighbor had to get off the porch. :mad:

I've had crap like that happen before. The line they gave me was, "When it ships we'll send it next day. We take a few days to process the order and prepare it for shipping though." That was the last time I shopped with them.

"next day shipping" refers to the actual shipping method, not the order fulfillment itself. still amazes me that people don't understand this.

Boosh! Thank you @TreeSaw! Joyeux Noël to you too! Tous mes voeux de bonheur et de prospérité pour l'année à venir aussi.

Love the box


the wrapping paper is a nice touch


and the gifts are great! I had forgotten that I asked for those socks... I work on climate change, and the unicorn has become our mascot at work... and I now have my very own :monkey: paraphanelia!

I have put the beers in the fridge, and will enjoy one this very evening.

Yeah!!! I am SO GLAD it arrived ok. UPS store goofed a couple of times (customs form and no unit number) so I wasn’t confident!

Happy New Year to you too!
