    Lol
    Not to give too many hints that will blow my cover, I'll just say that it is sorted.
    Details will be revealed sometime after Christmas.

    Received a shipping notice from Mach 1, and the USPS says to expect delivery on Saturday. So I'll reship on Monday and all should be OK.

    Received a box addressed to my TRF handle from Erockets so I believe Secret Santa has delivered! Can't (but will) wait until the 25th for the reveal. :)

    The closer you get to Christmas, the less waiting you have to do lol. Haven’t gotten anything yet but our mail service has gotten worse over the past few months.

    I just got a notice from Steve Skinner at Mach 1 that he shipped the wrong version of the kit I ordered for my recipient, and today shipped out the parts to convert the kit. USPS says they should arrive Monday. At least my recipient gets some extra parts, i.e. the leftovers.

    (I hate being a drama magnet. Did I somehow bring this on myself? Most drama magnets do.)

    What in the world kind of operation is Steve running over there?:D

    Maybe it's karma...you been up to no good?
    Sometimes it seems the bad luck comes in spurts or waves, I get my own share to be sure.

    Gift to my recipient has been shipped. Nothing from my Secret Santa, adding to "It always happens to me", my gift is late more often than it is not.

    Good news! Everything that I am waiting for to Papa Elf Special has arrived. Was going draw the winner today but got side tracked. Everything is ready for the drawing so I will draw it tomorrow morning. So far got $10 donated for the shipping of the prize. I will have a better idea how much the shipping will be tomorrow when the winner is selected and I can calculate postage. Also, as I figured, the BIG PRIZE this year was to large to fit in the box I am using so the kit is no longer packaged its original box. Finally, whoever wins, look inside everything! There may be goodies inside goodies :)

    Fingers crossed.
    To where do I send a donation to cover shipping?

    No one has come forward to get Papa Elf anything? It'll be pushing it to get it there before the 18th but I'll take up donations to get Papa Elf something. If everyone kicks in 4 or 5 bucks we can get him something nice. Ya know, for his efforts. I'll look over his list and see what I can come up with. Have a good idea of what to get, and it may even arrive by the 18th, but I can't foot the bill on it by myself.

    Any and all who want to jump in PM me. If you have already sent something his way, PM me. It needs to be ordered quickly. Yeah it's not very secretive but I can't sit here and PM everyone from my tablet. It'll be 2020 before I get done.

    PM me if you want to contribute towards the postage :).
    I can provide an alt address where I will be after the 18th if you want it.

    I am currently working on updating the ordered/received list.

    Thanks :)

    Papa Elf Special Winner has been drawn. In my excitement of who the winner was, I mispronounced his name. My most humble apologies :)



    Also, thank you everyone that donated towards the shipping. The Papa Elf Special will be mailed next week. :)

    Please remember to check in either by e-mail or on here once you order or receive a gift.

    I recall a previous drawing where all the contestants entries were grouped in batches when you walked theiugh the process.

    Looks like youve reandomized them for this year's drawing. Complexity abounds!

    Sent my recipient's gift today. USPS says it should arrive Monday. Considering that I sent a small package first class to Wyoming on the 5th, supposed to arrive on the 7th...it just got there today. I will remain skeptical.

    And you can mark me as received!

    it's the only thing under the tree.. I figured the brown ULINE box is enough to deter 3 dogs more than just fancy paper!
