Glad everything made it there, I was a little worried about the ornament.
(the cactus and ornament were made by a local artist, i thought the cactus represented SD well- especially considering the 74 degree Christmas we just had. i figured the book would interest you and even fans of the most evil team in baseball deserve some comfort! :lol: )
Merry Christmas!

Thank you so much Farrellgirl99! Received on 12/15 and it’s all awesome! Sorry for the late public post, wife and 3 kids been passing a stomach bug back and forth which has adddd to the normal holiday chaos (and sending out my SS gift)

I got a Neutral Milk Hotel shirt, a Mets winter hat, chocolate and Star Wars socks that I wore to the Last Jedi. Thank you so much! So thoughtful and awesome!

Why is the file too big when I try and post the pic?

You're so sweet! I wouldn't necessarily worry too much, it my past experiences it has always taken quite a bit for SS packages to reach me. Donkeys get tired under the head and all that... :lol:

It still is crazy season, let's see how the following weeks go by, let's not lose all hope :aoa:

I have a package waiting for me at the post office! Unfortunately this post office is only open from 9-5.30 and I’m at work so I’ll pick it up Saturday. :thumb:

Hey Mescal! Not only do I like Christmas presents that are late, I also like it when the box clangs! Thank you so much. I have three (strong) Belgian beers to try and three CD's by Belgain bands to listen too! I've listened to the one by Millionaire today and I am very impressed. I'm a sucker for new music on Spotify and receiving CD's from random bands I've never heard of is great.

I will drink the beer once I shift this Aussie Flu I've had for the last week. :rockon: :thumb:

:balls: :balls: :balls: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

There was a fucking note telling you that that present was for adults! I really didn't mean for your kids to open that one. God damn it.

I hope you enjoyed the presents. I'm going to show myself off for this one.
