    Yes it is and will last past the pancake mix I think.
    The socks are cool as well and I agree with your reasoning.
    A friend of mine is from the Pittsburgh area. I can't wait to pull out the popcorn next time she & husband are over.
    Thanks again.

    My recipient will receive their package on the 26th. (USPS willing). It is headed south of me.

    Evidently USPS/Santa made a stop Casa De Gedunker. He picked up really cool box, an angel figure, cookies, an ornament, Henry Bain's Famous Sauce and a picture book about the city Gedunker works in. All very cool, thanks.

    The box is made from Thuja wood harvested in west Africa per the label at the store where I bought it. Henry Bain was a resident of my burg. Glad you liked them and I hope you had a merry Christmas

    I was pleasantly surprised to see a Secret Santa package from one of the few Cyburbians with whom I've spoken IRL (via email, but that counts, right?).

    What a great box of local goodies from up north! Thanks so much, MD Planner! I love it all!!


    On an opposite note, I am a slacker... and my gift will be mailed out on Friday. It's headed northwest of me.
    How do I know you are who you think you are?

    The guys in blue shirts said they delivered a box to my victim on the 23rd. I hope the Grinch did not get his hands on it.

    SR - have you seen anything?
    Tracking said it was delivered to your parcel locker.

    Planit--your box arrived safely! Our local postal carrier absolutely sucks. He forgot to put a key to the parcel locker in our box, so I didn't get it and it was taken back to the post office. My wife picked it up today (she knows an unrecognized out of state package is Cyburbia SS at this point), so I'll check it out when I get home.



    My SS shipping was delayed due to a lengthy vacation, but I'm officially back and done. It is now en route to the land of coaches that throw chairs.

    I am running behind. I apologize, as things around here have been interesting with the "changes" occurring. It should be mailed by Friday to the west. I am good for it. I promise!

    Got a cool shirt, some trail guides, and book about weird stuff in the Carolinas, a bunch of brewery stickers (I collect)... all & all a nice little haul courtesy of Planit! This is actually a repeat SS for me--he hooked me up before with some awesome sauces, custom socks, etc. in prior years.

    Thanks ’burb fixer for the awesome SS box! I got some cool Taco Socks, a “Willie Nelson for President” koozie, a Horned Lizard ornament, a coaster from a bar with something of a reputation, a cool postcard of well-known street art, neat teas from the Austin Tea Company, and a seriously cool tee shirt from his ‘burg bike shop-the logo an armadillo pedaling an old-style big-wheeled bike, his scarf flowing behind him.

    Very, very neat! Thanks so much!

    Not to give away the secret, but don't you worry good sir. It is going to get there, and when it does, you will be happy There are some extras to make up for someone's lateness, so I have heard.

    A nice surprise is on the way to someone, somewhere in the lower 48 from someone in New York. It may even be a two part surprise to make up for certain logistical delays.

    That is all I'll say.......

    Good to know I'm not being scrooged again. Thanks, and sorry about the craziness that caused your lateness.

    is it to early to say I have been scrooged ?

    I played well because my recipient posted that she got her gifts back on Dec 11.

    Yes, sir!! Thank you! I am going to try and make me some coffee! My kids liked the OSU tire caps a bit too much.

    Thanks!!


    --

    So for my gift, I am going to ship it out on Wednesday / Thursday. The delay hopefully will be over as whatever happens Tuesday is going to give me time either way!

    Did anybody get screwed over? If so, I think public shaming is in order. And no, I'm not kidding.
