Paul McCartney added another day to his tour, and my daughter scored two tickets on floor 6 for a mere $250 each. I will not be going, hubby will go with my daughter. Hubby's life long hero, glad he can go. It would make for a great family night out with DD and her Fiancée, but not for $1K plus dinner and parking and souvenirs ( I am sure tee shirts will be involved).

Anyway, very pricey, but hubby is a life long fan, so I am happy he can go.
SQUEEEE!!!!! Congrats for your hubby and DD, that's an Excellent score!! We were lucky enough to win a bid on Ebay a few years ago, for a couple tix to see Sir Paul in Atlanta. The cost was only a few dollars above face value. And it was THE MOST FABULOUS CONCERT!!!

But i do promise to pick this thread up whence we get back, but hopefully the next trip will be lame as far as bad/ exciting things go. That can happen, right?

Right?

Yeah, right.
Doh! I missed your send-off!! Hope you are having a great travel day today, and have a terrific visit!!

Well, let's just say that the most expensive grits on the planet are on their way to your door Oh, and you may not realize this, being in Canada, but April 15 holds a special place on the calendar here in the good old USA. This is the day when masses of Americans rush to the post office to mail their income tax forms in order for them to get postmarked April 15. So here I come with my box of grits .... well, you get the picture. Then I find out all about customs forms that have to be filled out .... I wonder how many people declare "grits" on a customs form So, I'm thinking when they get to the border, they will probably get inspected right?! I can hear them saying "they must think we're stupid, who would pay this much to ship grits to canada .... we've got to check this one" So guess what Mr. Mysterious, you have to put someone's full name on a customs form. Last name and first name. From this point on you will be known as Steven (shout out to Nebo) Pkondz. I sure hope it's not illegal to ship grits to Canada, cause now they have my real name and someone named Steven Pkondz - Who do you think they're gonna throw in the slammer?????

Great story! I am sure standing in line at the post office was more painful than the shipping cost.

Let me get this straight. You mailed the grits to Steven Pkondz?

Thanks for letting me know about the customs forms. We were thinking about sending Ponzi a taste of New Mexico flare. If your grits get by, then I might have to try and use this name. Unless he decides to ever send me a pm with his REAL name.

Oh my goodness! Your adventure had me crying tears of laughter!! Thanks so much for the chuckles!!!

And so Mr. Mysterious becomes de-mystified to "Steven".

And Steven? Wherefore art thou Steven Pkondz? Would you please do me the kind favor of PMing me your address? I would hope what was on the package was legit, but I can't be certain. I have a thought for a surprise for you. I feel like I owe you Stevie!

Stevie is not available at the moment. Him and the Smidgy are currently at WDW. You will have to wait until after the 29th to get his address. Please leave a name, number and brief message, and he will get back to you.

Ha! Now we are getting things all screwed up. We are going to give poor Nebo such a headache!

And who knows? Maybe I will see Nebbo and Smiggy before the 29th. Inquiring minds want to know......

Sigh, I just hope Nebo is injury free and with all appendages attached.

Probably about the same amount who claim wunderbars.

There's a story of a man who walked up to the border with a wheelbarrow full of topsoil. The customs agents knew he was smuggling something so they sifted all the dirt but didn't find anything. The next day the man returns with another wheelbarrow full of topsoil. Again the agents sift through it all and again they don't find anything.

This goes on for days... for weeks... and the agents never find a thing.


Years later, one of the customs agents sees the man in a bar and buys him a drink. "Listen." He says, "I know you were smuggling something... but we sifted every bit of that dirt and never found a thing. So tell me. Man to man. Just what were you smuggling?"

The man looks the agent up and down. Takes a swig of his drink and says...


"Wheelbarrows."

If a man with a hat and a pistol at his waist comes to the door... don't open it.

Geez, I had no idea you'd have so much trouble. If I'd known I'd have told you not to bother. But I do appreciate it. I also would've PMd you my real name. But heck, I sent Bars to orangecats2 and addressed them to "Round cat in a square hole" or something like that.

Now why would I do that? You've got my real name! It was on the customs form on the package. Didn't notice?

Wait. Wait.

Ok, so I really, really have no idea what grits are... but, they're breakable????

You too Dee Dee? You also have my real name. And yes, that's my real address.

Okay, look. Everyone that's gotten Wunderbars (and there are so many of you, I feel I may have overtaxed our poor postal system) has my first initial and my compete last name.

And as for my first name.... it's already been guessed on one of Nebo's TRs. Heck, I even told Nebo what it was... but I'm not positive he remembers.


Okay, one last thing before I sign off... No, two things.
1. T-Man, I know you've posted a chapter... heck I even know that it's a two parter... but I'm too beat to tackle it tonight.
2. Stephanie, I'm hoping tomorrow to get out and do some shopping including picking up the Wunderbars and sending 'em off. So, I'm embarrassed to say that they're not on their way yet... but soon, soon.

nighty night night

Not so much patience, as the fact I never thought of it before. I may just make it a yearly tradition.

Loved, LOVED the post office story. I used to send monthly packages to soldiers (through Soldier's Angels, a fantastic organization) so I am well aware of the customs forms. I was told to always put "Toiletries" in the description so the goodies wouldn't get stolen on the way. Not sure what the customs officials think of that advice, but they are probably wondering what kind of ablutions (look it up) use Oreos and Slim Jims. I never adopted a southern soldier so I never sent grits (do they even sell them in Rhode Island? Probably not) but I've sent waffles.

We are heading out on our first Disney cruise next month to celebrate the DD's college graduation. (We are hoping she actually graduates and doesn't just get a blank piece of paper.) Then we do a few days at the parks - staying at Pop Century for the very first time.
