TOTALLY EPIC! This is gettin' to be as much about making the wives CRAZY as nailing unsuspecting members! Now THIS is the result of a well coordinated and executed mission. Kudos bombers! I salute you! Everyone that sent one of the bombs that landed on him TODAY gets a new graphic - the Honor Star - designating perfect execution by the entire bombing group...a shared award only presented when everyone is invloved in a perfect mission segment.

FIFTEEN BOXES!!! I only wish I could have seen the look on the mailman's face as he was getting the hand cart out of the back of his truck so he could get them all to the house! SOMEDAY, my brothers, we'll set up one in a town where other brothers live and we can set it up for them to be there with a video camera. Sigh. It is to dream.

Note: Peertaining to the Honor Star:

Stated previously:

Quote :
Everyone that sent one of the bombs that landed on him TODAY gets a new graphic - the Honor Star - designating perfect execution by the entire bombing group...a shared award only presented when everyone is invloved in a perfect mission segment.

In order to claim the graphic of the Honor Star any pilot that bombed Mozjo, having their bombs hit today, needs to send me a copy of the line on the USPS Tracking Page showing today's date and the comment that the package had been delivered on that date, "Out for Delivery" is not sufficient for award of the Star, it must state: 'Delivered'. At this point, not even mine shows this, showing only the OFD designation. So even though I pasted the graphic on my signature line it will be removed if I can't verify according to the above.

In addition, Mozjo will need to PM the bomb count to me, with the proper count being verified. If, and only if, all the bombs intended for him are verified as having been received today...then the Honor Star will go forward. It's possible that his wife, in her hysteria, miscounted. Trust, but verify!

Holy crap, what's this pall of smoke over the target? At least it's in the right state. I have a feeling the device may be under some scrutiny...

OK, I just got home. Or what was home!



I am pretty sure this is not a random bomb. Running to Home Depot to get supplies for the bomb shelter!
Once I am settled in to the shelter I will share!

Well, I just walked into the house...or what's left of it...and this is what I see:



Now I know why my wife thought I went nuts. She said, "I thought for sure you went totally crazy."

I told her we need to be carefule because of the Halloween motiff. There are two boxes that are unbelievably heavy. BTW - the postal carrier is the father of one of my daughter's closest friends. Can't wait to see him this weekend!!!

will be opening my Tricks and Treats momentarily.

I will be photographing my journey, so please be patient.

Thank you all again. I am truly greatful and humbled by your generosity!!

Well, there were 26 bombers launched, there were at least 12 packages in your photo. That leaves your bomb and up to a baker's dozen more unaccounted for at this time. . . .

Let's not forget that there appears to be another target. Tech mentioned heading for his bomb shelter, could he be a second target? affraid

Well, one bomb hit today and about leveled my house!

Excuse the mess but there ain't much room in here to store stuff.

Well Mr. Tech...you'd better check again! The USPS says that at least 10 bombs him your digs today...verified by yours truely. One was a double hit, being a 'two in one' or something like that.



And since we have passed to point of shock and awe, I feel it's OK to comment on the Honor Star thing.

We didn't make it boys. It's just that simple. Even though it appears that 85% of the pilots dropped their loads (lol) at the proper time to hit on the Day of Destruction...two did not...on each target. And the jury is still out on two as their DC numbers are still pending.

I already went through the entire list of DC numbers and have determined who did and did not have a bomb hit today. This has taken for-damn-ever to do, but you yokels are worth it...here's the readout on those whose hit, if you're not listed yours is either predicted by the USPS to hit tomorrow, or I didn't have a DC number to work with.

Those whole bombs hit today are:

Congrats to each one of you (and me) for a fine showing...exceptional performance!

Comment: one pilot was really pleased that he had gotten his bomb out on time...but it really didn't go out on time. It had a notification thing on the date that would have had it arrive OK, but it didn't hit the mail til the next day...Thursday. Shipping on the day prior appears to be a no win deal no matter where it's mailed from. That's why I keep saying Wednesday for a Friday delivery at least.

And this is not a penalty thing. A Saturday delivery is viewed as appropriate for general bombing purposes...just not for an all in one deal like the Medal thing this round.

Now...keep up with me here...I'm not going to penalize the lucky 85% that had theirs arrive together. What I'm going to do is change the very natiure of the award...and have it as a month to month kind of thing. If your bomb hit today...you get to wear the Honor Star with pride...for one month. Then we start again. It will be an award that has to be earned each and every mission. In essense, it is taken away and if you hit on the proper target date again...you can put it up again! Simple. Clean. And it doesn't result in a swath of start across the page. So that's what we'll do.

So if your name is in the list above you are authorized to post the star in your signature box. If not, show me that your box did hit today and we can go from there.
