    Guess I should either contact vendor or wait a while longer. Had a PayPal receipt from Aug24th on two shock cords still no word on shipment. Granted vendor has been busy with LDRS... Always had good business with Teddy in the past.

    Don't know about Teddy, but I just got home last night, and he lives just as far.

    He was at LDRS. Seemed in good spirits! Give him a few days. Shoot him an email again if you insist.

    Hi Andrew,,
    Did you happen to notice the note I put on the homepage of my site ??
    I got in late yesterday..
    It's going to take me quite a bit to get everything all squared away and caught up..
    Would you prefer I just refund your purchase or wait just a bit and I'll get your order out as soon as I can ??

    Teddy

    Teddy glad you guys made it back safe. Its funny how we all want things in an instant. I remember ordering things off the TV many moons ago they would say 4-6 weeks for delivery. Times have sure changed.

    First you send the SASE for the catalog, then you send a check or money order, then 6-8 weeks for delivery.

    Now I can shout at my watch and some guy will bring me Burritos or Chinese or whatever.... and I'm still impatient.

    All my HPR fly with one bad hawk. Never had any failure with his products. Can’t say the same about cheaper cords elsewhere.

    I'm now envisioning a forum post where a guy asks if anyone has heard from Siri or Alexa since he placed a burrito order like 28 seconds ago and doesn't know where his damn burrito is.

    Eventually you will just have to think "burrito" and it will appear in your belly...

    Teddy, did you buy something nice for the lovely lady who was taking care of the shop at LDRS while you luxuriated in the hot tub?!

    Some people have no patience and can't read. Sorry give the guy a break. He's a reliable individual and runs an established business.

    The actual best service is buying direct from vendors like Teddy and Buddy at LDRS. They brought it all and it was great finally meeting Teddy face to face. Really nice guy as he does all the talking and entertaining while his lovely wife does all the work ...what a deal! lol

    C'ya down the road

    Ha,,
    Your damn right about that Andrew..
    See,
    You made me cuss, on the forum yet, lol..
    Andrew always buys his harnesses from me,,
    He knows there won't be a failure even if the flight is less then gentle, lol..

    Look, see all the crap you started Andrew..
    Even that Lance guy is pickin on me..
    And now everybody knows I'm a total facade,
    it's my wife does everything, lol..
    I was starting to wonder how long I could keep up this charade..

    Andrew, I saw your order,
    I should have it out later today..
    Thank you always man..

    Andrew,
    I'm sorry I had you confused with another Andrew.
    I do that a lot,, age thing she says..
    You have not ordered from me before.
    I promise you will really enjoy these harnesses..
    They're on their way to you now.
    I'm sorry it took so long for me to ship..
    I think you win the prize, longest ever, lol..
    I'm sorry but my site charged you a bit too much for shipping,
    I have refunded the overage,
    you should see that in your paypal account immediately..

    Thank you so much for the order Andrew..

    Teddy

    I ordered years ago from Teddy. I live across the pond. This order turned up so quick it’s unreal but the quality is stunning. You’ll be glad to get it, order it and we’ll worth the wait

    Finally! Teddy acknowledges the truth... :)

    I had a lot of fun joking with your wife about that at LDRS. Who knew they made RVs with hot tubs?!

    See, that's the kind of advertising I actually WANT -- the dingus predicts I'm hungry for a burrito, knows what shop I like, predicts what kind I want, and has it queued up so when I angrily demand the universe produce sustenance, it obliges.

    I'll do my own chewing, though.

    Yeah, I remember saving about 50 of them so I could send them in with 35 cents to get a little submarine and a destroyer that broke apart when you shot the (spring loaded) torpedo. The teeny picture made it look pretty big, when I got it in a brown envelope it was like 2 inches long. Early lesson in "you get what you pay for"...

    Heyyy, thanks so much Pete..
    How are you ??
    I kinda thought you backed away from rocketry a bit..
    I sure hope everything's ok for you all "across the pond" lol..
    It's always nice to hear from you man..

    Gary,
    It has to come out eventually, lol..
    Even if Mika and Sandy did what they could to keep up the appearance of our significance, lol..

    Yeah Kevin,,
    After a while I sense everybody knows, so I just cave on it, lol..
    Always so nice to see you again man..
    You're another of the once a year types, we can talk on a keyboard all we want, but only once a year we see each other..

    I kinda think that'd wear thin too Glenn..
    We love most what we have to try hard and work hard for..
    Can you imagine in a million years when everything we want just appears ??
    We wouldn't know what to do with it, lol..

    You've got it Andrew, my pleasure..
    Enjoy the harnesses and the koozie..
    Yeah, I didn't know what a koozie was either..
    After I got them I found everyone saying-- hey nice koozie, lol..
    Seems everyone knew what they were called except you and I Andrew, lol..

    Ohhhh yeahhhhh,,
    I remember having to save the wrappers..
    Ya know,
    I think I was confusing remembering ordering from the back of a comic book..
    You didn't have to collect and save wrappers or anything,
    but I had to save up enough money, then give it to my mom, and have her write them out a check..
    Post office transit time there,,
    wait for them to deposit the check,,
    wait for the check to clear,,
    wait for them to ship,,
    transit time back..

    When they said 6 to 8 weeks,,
    they were averaging receive time, lol..

    Ya know,,
    you must be pretty old Cris, lol..

    Teddy
