I got an Elfish Surprise gift today. :rolleyes: It came from a North Pole Elf. I have no idea where this Elf mailed the package because the Return Address was MY address too. Plus the postage cancellation was incomplete and smeared. But, it does have a US Postage Stamp. It is a really cool Christmas Stocking design on the coin.

 

I got one of these today too!

 

I'm guessing that the elf who was playing postal clerk today is going to bed covered in postmark ink. He sure was sloppy with that cancellation stamp on my envelope.

 

We got one in the mail today, too. The Postal Elf is still pretty sloppy with the cancellation stamp....

 

Thanks to the Elves.

I got a pink duckie in the mail, a gift from Dressel Dragons. This makes two and that is absolutely perfect, because now I have one to give to the bride that had the herd of pink ducks as flower girls in her wedding.

 

And lyonden_UT sent me one of his nerds (the color of his lion's mane, excellent). And a coin from the Old Boot Stew Event.

 

Presents, I got presents, a very very fine day!! :rolleyes:

a good mailbox day:

 

Alaska 2005 with a piece of foreign currency with a moose on it!

Tracking European wildlife

Don't Feel the Reverb - beautiful coin - photos do not do it justice

Antique silver Lord of the Cache - I will likely wear it as a good luck necklace when I go caching

One purple and one blue pathtag from Castlecoins

Here we are with Rod's swag from Operation: Cacher Surprise. The 2 big bags are for the boys and the small one was the one I had in my backpack for the GPSr and coins from KyakerInMaine, given to Rod at the moment of the surprise. Boy was he surprised.

 

Thanks for the great memories and Christmas Rod. It was so much fun for me.

 

Thanks to everyone else that knew and kept the secret.

Woot it came yesturday and I forgot to post. It was not a coin, but my new used Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx with City Select NA v7, City Navigator NA v8, Trip and Waypoint Manager, with a case. Found this great deal in the GPS Garage Sale Forums. I love this place.

Here is everything in one picture.

 

Now I just have to wait until my next day off to get out there and check it out while finding caches. Really was hoping to have it before Christmas and use it for Operation: Cacher Surprise. Oh Well, Wednesday cannot come soon enough for me now.

 

This was the best gift I ever gave myself B):rolleyes:B):huh: , and thanks has to go to Onit for the Uber great price B)B) .

You are welcome Rod! :D

 

Great pics Maldar. Wonderful thing for you & the other great folks to do. :sad: Congrats on your new GPS.

 

Kids got their coin stash today. Have to grab a picture of that & put it up.

Maldar, those are some really, really great pics!

 

I still wish I could have been there to see the look on his face!

 

Ya done good!

 

Real good!

 

Naomi :sad:

 

Thanks Naomi. Amazing what a 1.2 MP camera can do. I'm planning on printing out everything and the picture to make a cool display. Need to also complete my scrapbook and add some caching pages.

Nothing in my mailbox... I wonder where they keep all my coins :anibad:

 

Ordered some coins in Germany for my secret mission that were shipped on thursday. They should have arrived on friday, maybe saturday, but they haven't arrived, not until today (just checked the mailbox and found nothing but invoices). My Crake Suncatcher was shipped on December 15th and hasn't arrived yet. My Kuntry Kashin coins were shipped on 20th December and the other German coin collectors got them all last week. Still waiting for my Rainforest Jewel I traded for in early December and for my Nerds I traded for in Mid-December. I don't want to talk about the Luminous Energy coin I am waiting for since November and the coin that fell (?) out of the mailer last week.

 

What I am doing wrong???? Where are all my coins I paid for??? I don't have the money to buy more coins in the future, this was some kind of "Christmas bonus" from my better half that I enjoyed a lot because I was able to buy some coins I really wanted, and now they don't arrive :o:o:o

Today a stocking coin from the North Pole addressed to me with a return address from me :unsure:

I forgot to send a change of address card to the North Pole as it was sent to GA but it got forwarded to my CA address :D

 

Thank you!!! Very nice coin :)

Happy New Year

 

I don't think I've seen any stockings arrive in Ohio yet. Looks like us Ohio folks were on the naughty list :lol:

Thank you Pengofamily!

 

I got a really pretty Parents of Sam tag set, a CITO coin and a pretty penguin pin today. Mamma says she is going to steal the penguin pin when I'm not looking, so I am wearing it to keep it safe! I like the horse and sstrawberry and princess stuff on the back of the Sam tags, they are really cool!
