My box was stuffed today. Which doesn't really say much since its quite small. But today was a special day having received my very first Mystery coin.

Found%252520it.jpg

 

I also received a new purchase.

The rest was a car door handle i ordered a while back. It'll be nice to open the driver door without having to reach out the window.

SO I've been kinda down since there haven't been any mailings in my mail box lately..

 

So I got home today and started to make fiesta lime chicken.. and found on the cutting board a black tin with a piece of paper that said "geocache" on it..

 

I opened it and found a Happy Birthday coin, personalized with "Happy 30th Birthday Jill" from the best husband ever.

 

I dipped it in my mailbox just to be fair! It's got rinestones and blue glitter. It's very cool!!

Here's some coins I received from friends sent me this week...

Love the Manatee with the duck ring! Can you tell me more about it? :D

 

It was a donation to a local event (along with the hummer). All I know is that it is called "Manatee". The event is in Florida so everyone will want it. Thanks Liz!

Someone hasn't been reading the forums properly lately (yes that would be me!). Glad they arrived Chuck, and that adorable little manatee is a very special edition that I got from AtlantaGal. More info on them can be found here sheltiedogshowlover http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=203138

I am at work with no way to take a picture, nonetheless, I didn't feel like I could wait.

 

I went to the mailbox and pulled out a package from Tasmania - my long-time trading buddy, Greenie's gift to me. I ripped it open, thinking it would be one of my "Top Five" geocoins and a geocoin I dared not even name fell into my hands - an AE Carousel Horse.

 

:o:wub::o:wub::o:wub::o:wub::o

 

Bless you, Liz. This geocoin means a great deal to me and you knew it - I suspect this is your very own sent as a gift from the heart.

 

I'm just gobsnobbered. Thank you, thank you, thank you, girl.

 

:ph34r:

 

Is your seeking list up to date?

 

Hehehe gobsnobbered - I love it!! :laughing: But yes it was a special one I wanted you to have because you have been so generous to me (and others). I hope it gallops nicely with the other horsies (and lions and tigers) on your carousel :anibad:

June/Beginning of July brought some fun stuffs.

Some math trades, some trades, a mission coin (Natasha), some purchases, and some wonderful gifts (like Kathy's Coin, and my Birthday coin!)

 

I decided that cows and sheeps (maybe ducks) can come play with the dog coins since my dogs herd them all. :-) The pig was a gift so he gets to stay with the other barnyard animals. :-) The wood tear drop, pig, the two labs and the small "taco bell dog" are non-trackable but still cute. The Signal coin is a Rochester NY coin (my home town).

 

Edited to say I'm sorry Kathy's coin is upside down!! :sad:

Wohoo! My flock of doves has arrived from Geowoodstock.. and they came with their own herding dog! The coin is fantastic Laval K-9! Thanks to Steven for being my trading proxy. I have to go through and see which one's I'm missing now. :lol:

 

I can't wait to get my flock of GW9 Doves!

 

Finally some coin mail this week - a couple of Solomans Seals from the Maths Trade, and my April Geocoin Club Goin!?? (USPS First-Class International is really fast - posted on 13th April!!!! Exactly 3 months to the day for delivery!)

Nice Dove coins!!! :)

 

But I have 3 small questions....

 

Are they trackable or not?

and... are they blind? I do not see eye on them... hmm.. maybe they are sleeping! :D

 

But I love them! :)

 

Oh... and... are they event coins?

 

Non-trackable. No eye... maybe they are sleeping. :D

Today, I was convinced that the mail lady sloth had decided to not come AGAIN. Normally our puppy, Luna lets the entire world know when the wind changes direction let alone when someone walks by!! I went to get my nails done at 5pm and BAM there was a jam packed mailbox waiting for me!

 

I got a cookbook that I wasn't expecting but it's still a pleasant surprise! as well as these three beauties!

 

The first, and by far the most spectacular and beloved......

A NOSNOW CacheOwl to match my CacheHawk, and the Christmas Compass Rose :cool:

Yesterdays post brought me a nice card from the Humane Society in Pennsylvania informing me that a donation had been made in honor of my dog " Aussie". I don't know if the kind donor wants to be recognized so I will just say a sincere Thank You! to this generous member of the geocaching community! You know who you are!

Congrats to everyone for their awesome packages and photos!

 

Here's my latest one:

I just love the Cache Type series from Cache Addict. I already had the satin silver set...now I have a satin gold set!

 

I've been searching for the Guardians of the Cache in Antique Bronze. I found the polished gold version, but since I already have one of the AB, I would LOVE to trade for the rest of the AB in the collection.

 

The other two will be fond reminders of my awesome time at GW IX. :D

Wow that is Awesome.... congratulations on the engagement! Right after my wife and I got married, DrNeal was kind enough to send us a Kathys Coin from a cointest... very generous of him also. Great people around these parts.

I had a happy mailbox today!

 

Several mailers cointaining Mathtrade coins, a surprise visit from Geocoinfucious, and a big box from Martijn&Martine with a whole mess of coins!

 

 

What is the Saffire coin towards the bottom... that looks pretty neat.

 

That is one of the VGC coins produced in 2006 by Dutch cachers as a group coin project. Saffier ('Saphire' in Dutch) had two versions made. For more pics from the series check out my link in my sig line and scroll down to VGC 2006 coins.

Moonkitty - where did that gorgeous bluemotmot coin come from? And how do I manage to get myself one? LOL

Mom (LadyBee4T) was VERY surprised to receive a gold envelope from her to her. When she opened it the little envelope inside said for Layla. She called me over and I took one look, jumped in the air and did a 360 as I have been known to do when I am excited because that Carpe Diem mystery coin is gorgeous! She told me though that this coin was to help for the bills that the vet lady gave to mom and I couldn't keep it. It's a wonderful coin but mom is right I have to help her with those bills. That means that the Carpe Diem coin that was in that envelope will help with the bills. She said it was a perfect coin because the scare she got last week that we gave her was indeed a reminder that life is fragile and it could be gone at any time.

 

Thank you Tempusfragilis for your kindness and donation of this wonderful coin! If we ever meet I hope that I will know who you are so I can give you lots of my puppy dog kisses. Mom says I'm really good giving those!! Layla the Geodog who mom calls the goofy one!
