  1. Since my internet at home is down I can't post pictures.. but my sadness of the day before quickly passed as I got a new mailer yesterday!


    Thank you so much Drneal! The coin from the math trade came (Rochester Maze GPS coin)and it's very neat. I hadn't seen the coin before but I'm from Rochester NY. It has the Rochester Museum and Science center logo on the back which is pretty cool. It's not dog themed but this one was local and intriqued me!


    The big surprise though was not this neat coin that I knew was coming! It was instead the hitchhiker in the envelope with that coin. A lovely "Kathy's Coin" has been added to my collection. It's just stunning!! Even more beautiful then I could have imagined. I'll treasure it and keep a place in my binder next to it for the new one when it comes out!


    thank you!

  2. I called my post office and the guy basically laughed at me.. said it could be anywhere. I tolk him I know it's a long shot and he said he couldn't give me the number to the sorting station.. but he did take my info and said he'd call the nearest one. I told him roughly what it was (what I thought it was anyhow) so we'll see.

  3. My mialbox brought me a wonderful surprise.. and a very sad disappoinment yesterday. Sivota graciously sent me a surprise coin in the mail that she had gotten on a trade and thought would fit into my collection! (Thanks for thinking of me!!)


    Sadly the mailer was torn and only the card was left in the envelope. :(

  4. So I got home yesterday to find a mailer on my front porch (my mailman doesn't use the mail box so my front porch is my mailbox).


    I was confused since I haven't ordered anything recently and I know it's too quick for the math trade mailers..


    so I picked it up and took it inside. Well I flipped it over to open it and gasped when I saw a big rip in the back of the envelope. I quickly ripped it open and read the beautiful card.. from Sivota who thought of me when she got a coin in a trade that she graciously thought would fit into my collection and sent my way.


    Sadly there was no coin in the envelope. It escaped somewhere between the USA and the Netherlands :cry:


    Thank you so much for thinking of me! I don't even know what coin it was! (don't know if I want to now :( I might just be sadder to know what was almost mine! )

  5. The first thing the post office guy said to me as I was handing him four international packages was "any going to cananda".. I said yes.. then stopped and said.. actually no.. not this time lol. Two Netherlands, one Germany, and one Spain.

  6. Please stop the pointless bacon. :P


    Bacon is never pointless! In fact bacon is the food that makes other foods worth eating!!


    My response to someone's thread in the off topic section about bacon!

  7. All 7 packages sent today for the math trade- after 1/2 hour of packing them up at a picnic table outside of taco bell.. there were a couple of arguments with the packing tape I brought.. but I won so they should be all on their way! No coins going to Cananda (thank goodness!) but there were two to the netherlands, one germany and one spain among the USA state bound envelopes. :D Enjoy!

  8. This is turning out to be an interesting mission already.. hehe..


    there's evil mayhem.. and someone has already asked me to find out their mission reciepent's shirt and shoe size.


    I'm waiting for someone to ask me to find out the age old the "boxers or briefs" for their receiver.. hehe...

  9. Don't worry if it's difficult to get a coin that the person is looking for.. some people have very specific hard to find want lists.. mainly because they have been collecting for so long!


    If you can find a type of coin that fits something that they enjoy outside of geocaching I'm sure they'll enjoy the mission you put together. :-) Remember it's about creativity so if you have to be creative and find something that isn't on their want list that's ok! I don't think anyone in this mission will be upset if you can't find a coin they need. :D

  13. What a great tribute to pay to someone you love! Reading your posts and how much you talk about Kathy loving animals I would say the dog park is a very touching memorial and she would have loved it! Congrats on the opening of the park I know that you have worked so hard on opening for the community and in honor of your wife's memory!


    I don't have one of the originals (though I think it's beautiful and would hope to some day obtain one)but I can't wait to see the coin that you come up with this time around!
