Awwww...you let the cat out of the bag!! :) No worries, I just posted that so whoever sent it knows it hasn't come yet, I didn't want someone wondering if it came but was never acknowledged!! And...no worries if it never comes either, I'd not expect you to send another package!! ;)

Hi, Received my White Elephant 2nd package about a week ago from Sweden but just have not had the chance to post yet! Included in the package was thre beautiful coins:

A great looking Hana Bananaberry Geojelly

A very nice 2005 Great Britain coin

and a Frozen Buns coin

 

These are all coins I dont have, so thanks very much for your thoughtfullness and generosity! I should mention that there was several very nice postcards with some of the local history of the cachers area written out on the back that made gave a package a very personal touch that I liked very much.

 

Last but not least, some pretty glass ornaments as well as lots and lots of chocolate Euro coins! I ate them all within 24 hours of receiving my package, thank you they were very tasty.

 

Thank you Mousekakat for your thoughtfullness, it is very much appreciated!

 

PS - The new job is going very well, hope that good things are finding there way to you as well!

Oh yay! I was getting worried that it was lost or something!

 

I hope you liked the coins, I know that the Frozen Buns wasn't the finish from your seeking list, but it was the best I could do! Those little glass ornaments are some of my favorite swag to leave when we cache, and those chocolate Euro coins are lethal :)!

 

Glad to hear that the job is going ok, too!

I haven't seen KAboom's mission making it yet, just wondering if I missed this? It won't be hard to tell since it'll have MY name on it (son sent it out and I forgot to tell him to "lie" about the return addy).

HI

 

I 've just received my mission today. Its a great package from Dressel Dragons ?? with nice geocoins:

I'll post a picture later since, they all came inside the belly of a great white elephant :D:o and i had to extract them very, very carefully :)

 

a) Dressel Dragon's geocoin (the vinyl recording disk);

B) CastleMan Trackkable Paht Tag;

 

extras:

Geocoin Chicks of MWGB - Mallard

Geocoin Chicks GW5

Dressel Dragons Path Tag

 

I do like the pathtag. Every time i saw one i became more and more interested in having ... more and more of them (if you're reading this line and have a path tag of your own ... :o )

 

I had i small problem to solve at the post office tought. A gender related problem :blink: since i had to explain easily that "paula" on the mailing address was in fact "paulo" . Both are common names in Portugal, but i think that in the USA there are no one called "paulo" which in spanish is "pablo" :o:o.

 

Thank you all,

 

Paulo :) aka PLnauta

 

ps. oh :D now that i wrote trheir names i see it clearly: geocoins chicks :o:o (am i seing it right)

I am glad that it arrived safely...I was getting worried! Sorry about the name mix-up. Usually I print labels when I mail packages, so I don't make any mistakes. Obviously, I did not use a label this time...oops! I think that I subconsciously merged your caching name and first name.

Yesterday was my (or better: our) lucky day; We picked our package yesterday (seems it got delayed by customs).

 

Inside we found three coins: a Canada Micro Puck, a Rainbow Forest Jewel V1 and an Earth Turtle. Three great coins, packed lovely; but the best was yet to come: a cute little blankie for our soon-to-be-born kid! It's so nice and soft, my wife will take it with her to the hospital when the day of arrival has come, can happen any day from now. So our son will get it on his first day of life.

We loved sending the replacement since there was something we wanted to send the first time and didn't have (we waited and waited..)

 

We made the mistake of not insuring or tracking the first package so we learned a good lesson...priceless!

 

And really, after hearing your mail troubles, we would have like to send you about 10 packages...but we didn't :D

I opened the first one....... and out hopped a Loggerhead micro...... WHEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

He is so darn cute and I have been wanting a Loggerhead for a longgg time!

 

Next package..... a GORGEOUS Black Nickel Belted Kingfisher coin. Oh, what a beauty.

 

I couldn't even imagine what would be in the last one..... and out came an Earth Turtle! This is another that I have not been able to get my hands on!

I am still waiting for one. But I know from tracking another mission that the mail is not always fast or correct. Sent one from Maine to Connecticut and it went to Hawaii. So it might show p when you least expect it.

I've not seen any of the 3 people I had post yet that they have received theirs. I was late getting them away, but they should have all been delivered at least 1 week, if not 2 weeks ago! Is the Post Office out on strike or something?

Was not me, in your instance.

 

I posted my packages to the US at the very start of Feb (yes, I know I was late... sorry)... had them then put into the US Postal System on Feb 11th and then nothing since then.... usually they arrive within 2 to 5 days of being put into the US Postal System... usually...
