    Sigh...I'll never get all these pages read. I hope you are all having fun teasing each other. We lost power for 11 days due to hurricane Sandy and I am completely out of touch with what's going on here at the QB. It's a good thing I already have part of my SS gift at the house. A contractor is meeting Glenn this afternoon to get estimates for the insurance company. Gutters were ripped off the house-shingles missing from the roof. A tree is leaning on the house, a couple of the panes of the bay window in front were cracked. Several other trees down or hanging in mid air...I think that's most of it. Still we were luckier than a lot of people who lost their homes to the ocean and wind. I'm trying to get caught up at home and at work but will try to spend a bit more time on the QB to see what's going on.

    Wow, blondeslave, I'm really glad you made it through "Sandy". Sorry about your house. Hope you had a fire place or friends or relatives you could stay with.

    SORRY I did another check today and I think I may have been looking at the wrong box maybe the one for DVD size. the small flat rate was $47 So forget what I said. Yes your best way is the simple parcel and make it as light as possible I guess.

    One thing to keep in mind if you have an Interna'l the US postoffice does have flat rate for International for the small and medium boxes-the rate is slightly more than domestic rate-I think it is $14 and 18, approx. But if you have something that is lighter weight send it first class parcel or regular Parcel, and if it will travel ok in a padded envelope that will be fine too. And when you fill out the Internationl custom form be sure to check that it is a gift. I think Terri had something in the instruction about not putting the cost or value at more than $20-I think it has to do with duty tax. And again if you have any question about any part pm Terri, she is very good about helping you too. good night all.

    I was going to pack cookies but was afraid that if it wasn't opened until the 9th all would be so stale . . . so no baked goods in the pkg leaving tomorrow. the state starts with the letter "I".

    Oh, Dreamer. Tennessee starts with a "T", so that box MUST be for me and no other clues seem to fit, so there! It's coming here. I've seen both my SS's post, but only one stated the box was received, wonder about the other. Oh, well, I'll find out soon - Dec 9th isn't terribly far away!! And of course, I need the time to get my box here - I'm still waiting.

    Well, that was pretty dumb. I misread Cheerio's post and thought she said the state started with a "T" - not an "I" - guess if really does mean "In" Dreamer's box!

    As far as catching up on this thread...very simple...Dreamer was put into the naughty corner...we found out there is a bar in the corner....several people wanted to peek into their boxes...and Dreamer is back in the naughty corner.
    There...you are all caught up...
    Glad that you are OK...things can be replaced or repaired...people can't.

    Hmmm...if there's a bar can I request to be sent to the naughty corner. Is there a Margherita machine? Looks like we'll get at least half of a new roof and a new bay window in front if the insurance company says okay.

    Leota, so sorry to hear about your DH's injury. That is very painful. I'm sure you're busy assisting him.

    In your dreams, Dreamer! North Pole doesn't start with "I". However, Illinois, where I live, does! I bet Cheerio's box is coming to ME! And Cheerio says she is from Trumbull County, OH...I was born there. It's a sign! It's a sign!

    Alrighty.....all the packages are wrapped, strapped in to their respective boxes, which are clearly labeled "Secret Santa", addressed, and packed in the sleigh!!!! I'm on my way to the north pole mailing facility to get them out to their recipients. I hope the bricks don't rattle around to much on the trip and crush the other items I've packed.

    Maybe using bricks for packing material wasn't such a good idea........but it's all I had on hand....hehehe
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!
