Okay, here's the deal: I couldn't wait.

 

Normally I'm really good at waiting, 'cause I love surprises. But the box...it just sat there...taunting me...

 

And all I can say is wow, wow, wow, wow!

Queenie-Boo-Day, you are the best! Summer Grace immediately snagged the bear you sent for her and the Terrible Towel, which for some reason had me in giggles for about 10 minutes. The candy is quite delicious. I got a Northwest Ohio Geocachers coin (shaped, glittery, and just all kinds of cool) as well as a "Persistence of Caching" geocoin (based on one of my favorite paintings as a kid -- I was a weird little kid).

 

I've got your bug, Queenie's World Travel Coin, and will release it somewhere around northern Japan as soon as I get out caching. And thanks so much for the puzzle and the travel bug tag -- I will do exactly as you suggest and will be attaching the tag to the puzzle so that other people can be as hounded as I was working on this puzzle. ; ) I shall have to figure out some way to sneak the geocaching pin onto my command ballcap and I love the birthday cards and the postcards of Pittsburgh (oh, and Summer is quite taken with the Penguins button too). Really, I had a great time opening up all of the packages with the child -- thank you so much!

Birthday Mission Update from Geoghunt.

 

Sorry, my computer decided to lose its hard drive a few weeks back, and I have only just recovered the contents...

 

So to my Birthday mission cacher... sorry, I have only just relocated your address, but it is on its way... sorry. (Your birthday is tommorow so it will only be a week late hopefully)

 

Also a big thank you to Ezcphs3 for my birthday gift... photos to be uploaded soon.

Sorry I'm really late logging that Cheyenne's (Animal Magic) birthday parcel arrived. She was delighted with everything inside and the pink bear has spent every night in her bed since.

Hopefully we'll get time to activate the Happy Birthday and Black Canyon Beach Luau event coins ready to take to an event tomorrow.

 

Thank you so much.

Is it too late to get in on the April Bday mission? if so, I understand, not a big deal, but I thought I would check! Thanks!

short answer, yes as I've sent out all emails.

long answer: If I get someone else last minute then I'll let you know, ok? I hate to say no....

 

It's ok...I thought I was...so don't go out of your way! I'm sure it's hard enough to manage these missions without late people joining all the time! :laughing:

APOLOGIES in advance...this one's probably going to arrive a little late, but I couldn't bring myself to fork over $48 to send via air mail! The recipient's birthday is still 3 weeks away, but packages from Canada to Europe often take longer than that.

 

Mission received - (not expected for a month or so)

Birthday Mission Email Sent - YES, feb 5

Birthday Mission Name Received - YES, feb21 I´ve been researching most of the day :rolleyes: tricky, just hope the list is updated

Birthday Mission Sent - no, still time

Birthday Mission Received - no

 

I traded for a coin on the seekinglist and the same week I got it in the mail, the receiverperson got one also from the mathtrade. So I had to find another and I´m waiting for that to arrive. That means the mission may be late in arrival but the rest is packed up so it is just the coin I´m waiting for.

And also, Happy Birthday to Mufflon (March 10)

 

Thanks!

 

A week past my birthday now and still nothing in my mailbox. :)

I have to admit though, it's more exciting than usual to check the mail. I can live with that for a while longer. :D

 

My outgoing mission is not sent yet, it's an April birthday and I plan to mail it next week or so. Will update when I do.

Glad te hear it arrived .... :) Sorry about the waiting part (I'm not very good at that myself :) ), but I wanted to make sure you got the package on time before I go on holiday :D

I'll still be away and probably without an internet connection on your birthday, but I hope you'll like your presents and have a wonderful day!!
