Haha! I'm sitting near the front door and I didn't even hear the guy come up on the porch! Yep, sure enough. Theo's more aware of my surroundings that I am. Ok, gotta start taking some more photos.

Ah, yes. Fun with the postal service. Now that the targets are declassified, I can tell my own tale of postal woe. First of all, this is the second month in a row that I've predicted a target. The day before BH sent out the PMs, I sent a bomb out to Zach. Manistee is roughly 170 miles from Kalamazoo. Tracking that package, I watched it go to Grand Rapids (regional hub) to Luddington (quite near the destination) then overshoot 60 miles north to Traverse City before heading back to Manistee. Altogether it spent 4 business days in transit. When the official bomb went out on Wednesday, I mailed it from Coldwater (50 miles FURTHER AWAY from Manistee) on my way to the first stop on my work trip. It went straight to Traverse and was delivered on Thursday! Mad I think I was the only one to hit early. When I saw what had happened I PM'd Zach with a cover story. Since his package included a fat baggie of Squadron Leader with "compliments of the squadron" written on it, I told him I had picked up some things for him while running the actual mission. I think it worked. Razz

Also, I don't know what it takes to be an Ace in this squadron, but I think Kaiser deserves at least a "Mention in Dispatch" for his astounding accuracy with "binary explosives". He sent a letter bomb from Afghanistan and placed a third-party order with a stateside vendor and had them both arrive on the same day!

And if you piss him off, he'll call in an Air Strike on your house. Twisted Evil


Seriously, Yes - his timing and accuracy from his location in unprecedented!

Not as long as we abide by the Geneva Convention.

Congrats on the Shark Mouth P-51!

Cob, rye, and possible federal offence. That's one of those new 5th Ave Diplomats. The bottle and noisemakers are REALLY huge!



Ok, maybe I'm totally lying and that's really a mini cob.

re: Kaiser...he is a model of not only accuracy but of what can be accomplished given proper motivation. When someone WANTS to accomplish something...bends his will toward researching what it will take to get there...and follows through regardless of obstacles...the liklihood of success is significant. Having his items arrive on the same date, with one having been sent out THREE WEEKS in advance? PLEASE! CAN I GET A WITNESS? This guy IS THE BOMB!!!

If it had cracked, at least the packaging was "extra absorbent". Razz

That was the glitter bomb from Oregon that led me onto the front porch to discover a wayward Oregonian. Talk about weird coincidences!

It's worth mentioning again:

This was an EPIC bombing. Two guys ended up with as much stuff as I did, and I got absolutely ruined.

I was moderately concerned when I knew the squadron was going to be split up to hit two targets last month, because hell, some of us are broke and everyone here deserves that feeling of overwhelming, humbling joy when they realize who and what is involved with being around here. The personal nature, the meaningfulness, and the generosity. Hell, this squadron is so good, three targets might even be viable.

These missions are an absolute joy for everyone involved. You guys are awesome. Cool Keep getting better and better.
