Thank you to the sender! I don't know who it is yet!

Oh my Goodness; Good Golly, Gee-

Look what arrived from FunkMaster-T !

 

I must say, your package arrived on the most appropriate day . . . we got our first snow of the season! We got just under 2 inches, but way more than I would like to see.

 

What a wonderful package you put together for a winter mission. I love the hat and mittens from the 2009 Olympics! They are georgeous and I cannot wait to wear them! And to answer your question-I will sport them proudly (My husband’s Mom is from Ridgetown, Ontario and I have family in Vancouver, BC-we love Canada!) I love the snowman ornament. I just started decorating my Christmas tree, so this one will go on my tree tonight. I am having a luncheon at my house and the “Nosewarmer Punch” will be a perfect accompaniment to my luncheon. I love the Starry Night coin-I do not own that one. It is like a little stain glass window. It is really beautiful and perfect for the season. The snowglobe bottle topper is awesome. I have never seen anything like that. Thanks for the snowman cup-all in keeping with the snowman theme. Lastly, thank you for including your sig item. It is adorable. I work with polymer clay, so I know these took some time to make-great job. Next, to Geocoins, I love getting sig items!

 

Many, many thanks to you, ("ARTIST") FunkMaster-T, for putting a smile on my face and joy in my heart. May you have a wonderful holiday season!

 

Well, I guess this wraps up this mission.

Matt and I got our package in today! 2e2m4b6.jpg

We received delicious hot cocoa mix in a cute snowman bag, two stress balls, cute window clings (totally putting them on my white board at work!), chocolates, mints, cute little snowflakes, snowman ornaments, a beanie, and some fingerless gloves (my favorite kind of glove!), a deck of snowman cards, and some hand warmers (which I could always use, I am so cold blooded! 641pbn.jpg

We also got 4 coins and 2 pathtags! We feel absolutely spoiled! 2wpo588.jpg

Sorry the photos aren't the best, it was hard to get good pictures of the amazing coins!

 

Thank you sooooo much Shadow's Friend! Matt and I are so grateful!

 

Also thank you Lorca for putting on this mission, it was our first one and it turned out great!

It is really hard to think about winter when it is over 80 degrees but hopefully it will cool down by next week. I received some fuzzy sock, cocoa, candy, a new mug, a cute penguin note pad, a really cool expandable snowman and of course coins. I peace coin in the spirit of the season and a beautiful suncatcher type cardinal coin, a snowball fight, Geojellies 4 and some pathtags. Will try to post a picture soon. Thanks so much fuzziebear3.

Wow, after seeing all the great packages, I feel bad. Mine isn't as sparkly fun. It's warm and coin. Sorry I couldn't make it better.

OMG, I can't believe you would have thought that. In fact, when I opened the package and saw all of the wonderful things you sent, I totally forgot about the Geocoin! It was fantastic and I loved everything you sent!

 

You did a great job and I am very appreciative of the effort you put into it, including wrapping the package and drawing the picture (I love stuff like that!).

Well, Not Jingle Bells. There was a small decorated paint can that held cocoa and marshmellows, but opened and spilled out all over the box. There was a pretty smelling Candle which I cleaned out because Iwant to light it Christmas Eve. A couple of Candy bars, I think I can salvage, they were soaked in the liquid bath soap that managed to unscrew itself. And A caching Canada geocoin and Watermelon Flip Flops Geocoin.

Thanx for your thoughtful gift, please next time use bubble wrap or lots of paper as the two small sheets of packing paper didn't protect the cool gifts from our friendly postal services, LOLOL.

Bummed about the Cocoa, or should i say Snowman Soup!!!!!Love That Idea.

No Matter, I am Happy with my gifts, Thank You so much, Weezor, Happy Holidays

I still haven't opened my package. I was slightly late sending, and promised not to open mine until the package I sent arrived at it's destination.

 

Getting a bit twitchy now, watching this intriguing box sitting in the dining room! :)

Sorry late response. Got the mission a week ago, but things are quite all over the place here at home.

Thank you so much WRITE SHOP ROBERT! It was like Christmas and birthday at the same time.

Never expected a so large one. We love all of it. My son have not stopped sleeping with that dog pillow since we got it :):blink::anibad::blink::o

And so many nice coins. None of them in my collection before. Always wanted that sword though :D:D;)

Thanks again.

Another day goes by and another visit from the (Fe)mailman with only some lousy Christmas Cards and bills and no Festive Package. Maybe it is being timed for the first day of winter...Sure hope so cause I am getting restless...T.

 

(This was just an update and by no means a complaint...I just want the mission and I'm itchin' for someone to cure my lonely Coin-dition)

Solstice-eclipse overlap first in 372 years, not since 1638

 

With the sun and moon in alignment I just had to open my mission from Ashallond

A box full of games and puzzles will keep us busy through the winter. A Christmas ornament, a cute penguin and a “366 One More Day of Caching” topped the mission.

Thanks for a great mission. :huh:

It Arrived!! It Arrived!! It Arrived!!

 

The mail arrived today with no sign of a package so I resigned myself to wait another day but just after lunch a delivery van arrived and dropped it off. Everything is great and the kids love their gifts. Will post some pics a little later...Thanks Opalsns!!!

I received a very nice package today from rivercacher. I will post a picture later. Thanks Mike for all the great things you sent! By the way, my hubby already ate some of the treats :o but he's not getting any of the coins :bad: I'm glad to have an Idaho Spud, I heard of them but never tasted one, we will be sharing that one ;)

Only 2 days left and it will be Christmas :santa:

I'm a bit worried.

Over four weeks seems to be a long time for a parcel to be on the postal way.

 

Also, I have no idea what the cacher nick of my mission partner is. I hope, she does post here in the forums and let me know when the mission arrived. :blink:

Just an update since I haven't been on the forums recently. I haven't received my package yet - maybe I will get it today or tomorrow and I can open it on Christmas Day! I think I read that WSR received my mission that I sent so hopefully it arrived intact.

Will update again when I receive my mission...

Love that chocolate... Yummo!

Now I can start a 2nd job as a bandito! Woot!

 

I'm so delighted that it arrived safely, and on the first day of winter too! Woooooooot!

 

My OH was just asking what I sent, and when I recounted what I could recall, the reply came, OMG you've sent a terrorist kit!

 

...and then we saw the pic from you 57Chevy and both fell about laughing, Bandito sounds so much more classy than terrorist! Woooooooooooooooooot!

This is all the neat stuff rivercacher sent us. We already ate the wafers and the famous Idaho Spud, very good indeed :anibad: Some stickers and pins, I really like the one with the ice cream cone since I have all the Solstice coins B), cappuccino, a pair of socks, a key ring, a tiny light, a cute little bear, a cache ready to hide and also a nano cache that fits inside a spider, I won't be the one handling this one, that's for sure :laughing:

 

We didn't have any of the coins we received, a CITO, 2008 Poker Challenge, Powers of Ten and a Minnesota Geocoinfest 2010 micro.

Here are the Two Younger Handsome Boys modelling the warm winter gear. The black hood will be very effective around these parts as its winter for a very long time. The Orange hood is a scent blocking garment for hunters. I am not a hunter but there are a multitude of them around here so having something bright orange on when walking in the woods is always a good idea!! Thanks (And, yes, I do realize they look like an Iranian couple in this picture...lol)

This is the backs of the three great coins we recieved. The top two are signiture items and the bottom one is an Irish coin with a Pathtag Sherpa on board. Love them all.

And here are the fronts.. The Irish one says "An T-or" and the yellow circle in the middle is removable. Sorry about the shadow. This was honestly the best pic I could get.

And here are the three gifts for the Little HandsomeBoys! They are having a great time playing with the trucks playing "Criss Cross Crash, (or as the littlest HandsomeBoy says "Crystal Crash") and the Truck in the back came with its very own TravelBug Dogtags so once the snow melts we will be releasing it into the world. I was thinking we would give it a mission to try to return to you Opalsns and see how far it gets!!

 

Thanks again for all the great stuff. we really appretiate it and it was well worth the wait.

 

And thanks Lorca for a great mission. It was my first but it certainly won't be my last.

I finally opened my mission parcel on Christmas Day :D

 

A hat and gloves, lots of warming drinks, trackables (rubs hands with glee, a magnet to keep on the fridge to remind me of this mission and some puzzle books to keep me out of mischief during the cold weather!

 

Thank you very much Usyoopers!

Ok - I don't have time to post a pic but I want to set my sender's mind at ease. THANK YOU Team kizb!!! Your package arrived by way of my neighbour's mailbox who doesn't check her box as fanatically as me! lol! So I got it last night (though I think it was probably delivered a week ago!) and will hopefully have time to post pictures today. The coins are great and the throw looks nice and comfy.

Thank you very much!

 

And thank you to Lorca for hosting...it's a time-consuming job.

 

Happy Winter everyone!

Finally, my Winter Mission arrived, all safe and sound, on the last day of the year! The sender and I may have been worried, but it was worth the wait! I had to rush yesterday when I opened it, but today, I was able to spend more time and appreciate things more.

 

A stuffed full box of goodies from ElliPirelli

Here they are all spread out ...

I enjoyed opening all the wrapped packages, and looking at each item. Some things had writing in German that I tried to decipher. But ElliPirelli was also nice and sent translations too.

 

5d9265ba-a52f-4590-95eb-3ebbab15e90e.jpg

 

I had some of the tea this morning (yummy). And I know what gluhwein is, I remember I had that when I visited Germany a few years ago. I am looking forward to the cocoa too. Oh, and I love those chocolates with marzipan - I had some of that already too. And cookies, and lip balm. And a neat geocaching scarf. Wonderful, warm, goodies all around.

 

And then there were the great coins and pathtags too :

I LOVE that kite, it is so beautiful!!! And the suncatcher Christmas ornament is so pretty, and I love suncatchers! The other might be a geocaching germany type of coin :), and also a underwater cacher geocoin with a diver and an octopus. You obviously did your research well to find coins that I would absolutely love!

 

Thank you so much ElliPirelli for the great mission, and also to Lorca for setting this up!

Just wondering if there are any outstanding missions that have not found their homes yet? I have had fun following each one's journey. Thanks again for the great mission Lorca. I look forward to participating in many more!...T.

Back from my holidays I'm relieved to hear, the mission arrived at last.

Another example of really slow postal service.

I'm also glad, you liked the stuff.

 

So both ends of my mission are complete and I hope Lorca is feeling much better and had as much fun with this mission as I had.

Thanks for taking the time to organise it.

I am so behind on everything these days but here is a pic from my winter mission. Team kizb sent this to me and it was lovely! Thank you! The background is a warm fleece blanket - it fits the theme of this mission perfectly. The 10 Years Anniversary coin was on my seeking list which I never expect but always appreciate... :) The other little goodies were very nice indeed - I haven't sent anything out travelling in awhile so the tag and handy team kizb personal with a hole might see some of the world. Perhaps I will launch them in the spring at our Mega in COG country. Thanks again!

The Snowflake ornaments are working great hung from the windchime!!

I am finally getting my picture posted. The mission arrived weeks ago, but I waited to open it until Christmas.

 

The scarf and gloves are beautiful! I wore them on New Years! The coin is one I've never seen before, so I'm thrilled to add it to our collection!

I love the moose! I used them as ornaments and hung them on our Christmas tree. Everything is just perfect!

 

I don't know who sent the mission. The card is signed by my Secret Santa!

So to my Secret Santa -- THANK YOU very much!!!

I know that she had health issues a few months ago :( We usually write each other on a regular basis and it's been quite a while since I received anything from her. If she's not on the forum, it's not a good sign either :sad:

I've been wondering too, I miss Lorca.nl posts. :( Her posts usually put a smile on my face, she's such a sweet person. I hope she's doing okay....I know she was having health issues, like you said, and last I heard she was doing well. :unsure:
