    OK they need to at least fess up to you in a PM if they don't want the full throttling they will get if they do it publically.

    Come on folks this takes the fun out of it!! Tell your folks what's up and apologize and make it right!
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    To the SS's who are still waiting, one of you has me to blame.

    Until this thread popped up, I had completely forgotten and realized that I signed on for this prior to all the craziness that has gone on overthe holidays (family, 2 job changes, etc).

    I promise to get on this ASAP and send a Winter gift...
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Just to clarify: no issues incoming or outgoing at Chez Veloise.

    I'm making noise on behalf of Jen.

    It is one of Bear's favorite foods.

    *The one I was going to hand deliver had to be eaten or it would have gone bad. So I ordered a new one, but I guess you never received it. And I will order another an make a point, when we are visiting the wife's parents up your way, to drop it off.

    I'm still waiting for my SS gift from 2005. One of a few reasons I haven't participated in the last 2 years.

    Hey, You have pastie crumbs on your mouth so I think you better order it again,again, again,again, and mail it directly to me.

    Really, what would Dave say about repeatedly ordering a gift for someone and then eating it yourself?
