I love it when the targets talk smack before the destruction rains down. Twisted Evil You had it coming, Bowman, you poor bastard!
I'm starting to wonder about this second target, though. Could it be the squadron actually missed for once?

It looks for sure like everyone (including me?) is using a wrong address.

Well I hate to do it, but I guess I should ask the target in question if there is an issue with the address. It was right off my master listm created last year and updated in October.

Sorry everybody. My box is among the ones that are 'out there' too. Not a good thing.

Hold on. This may take a while.

__________________________________

So...

We're OK here citizens.

The second target decided to elude any potential attacks by MOVING...and of course not telling anyone around here. Took it on the lam, in other words. Nice.

He DID say that he put in a change of address thing...so...hopefully things will get back on track within a day...or so.

If not, then you can expect your packages back in, I'd say between one and two weeks. (lol)

What you do after that is up to you. (heh, heh)

How about one for keyboarding accuracy, grammar and not forgetting words in the middle of sentences?

This, and all of the above, really, gives me the giggles. Well done, everyone, all around, and thanks for sorting out the confusion, boss. Ian K will pay the price for his failure to update command regarding his whereabouts when he discovers that I only put a little dry ice in with all the fresh trout I sent him, reasoning it would only be in the mail for a day...

Sorry had to reload the operating system on my laptop and every thing has been communicated through my phone for about two weeks. Auto correct murders grammatical correctness.

I don't deserve this honor and dread going to the post office tomorrow. Thank you one and all.

You are gentleman and scholars.

Ooooh! Carbonated trout! If 'fishfuzz' adjusted his moniker to 'fishfizz' he'd be right on it.

IK - I have an app installed on my notepad...SwiftKey. Android OS. It's INSANE the thing is so smart. Does whole predictive word strings that are dead on. Learns words you type frequently. New school to me (as opposed to old) and best of all it's easy to use. But even IT plays the occasional little trick. Ya gotta proof what any robot writes before hitting 'send'.

Mine says "forwarded" but it just kind of dies out there. Hopefully it will pick back up tomorrow where it left off today.

Delivered at 11:37 this morning according to the trusty old USPS. Now the wait to see the carnage. Dang it the word carnage makes me want to watch the old show "Robot Wars"...and now that makes me want to watch Robot Jocks.

My bomb is still marked as forwarded.

Let this be a lesson learned. If you're bombin' and you have to up and move the first person to notify is not your mom or dad, not your brother, sister, cousins or best friend, but the Commander. Razz Wink

Ok...here's the run down. First, a quick shot of everything un-packed:



The hardware included one MM cob (bent amber stem), as well as a nice little briar that's been cleaned up and ready to go:



Also had plenty of tinned tobacco and a cigar to boot:



The baggies of tobacco as they were unpacked:



And how they look after they were all jarred up (the bottom shelf and part of the middle shelf were already around, but the bombing accounts for half the middle shelf and the entire top...except the football candy holder - that puppy's been around for a while).




As for a list of the tobacco:

Ramon Bueso Genesis Cigar

Tins:
Erinmore Flake
SG FVF
SG Skiff Mixture
SG Sam's Flake
Villiger Mid Day
DAN Hamborger Veermaster
Sutliff No. 5
Sutliff Field Master
H&H Capitol Stairs
C&D Haunted Bookshop
Hermit Captain Earle's Stimulus Package


Baggies:
Dunhill London Mixture
Dunhill Early Morning Pipe
Dunhill 965
Prince Albert
Patton's Oriental Dusk
Patton's Soulmate's Kiss
Patton's Crossroads
Patton's Cathy's Clown
H&H Marble Kake
Park Lane Connoisseur's Flake
Park Lane Fireside
C&D Epiphany
Fairmorn Lancer's Slices
Peterson University Flake
Villiger Mid Day
Villiger Late Night
SG Squadron Leader
SG Christmas Mixture
Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake
Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake
John Aylesbury Luxury Flake
Park Lane Red Paramour
Balkan Sobranie Orignal Mixture (new)
Esoterica Penzance
Fusion Labs (P&C) Jefferson Mixture
Germain Plum Mixture



All in all, one hell of a payload...my dog was particularly pissy that he was locked out of the office for so long while I had to sort and organize (I'm a bit obsessive, that way). I don't even want to think about how long its going to take to start getting through all of this! Thanks a ton to everyone...can't wait to get even with you.

Holy heck that scene has my anticipation building like an avalanche down a mountain. Went to the post office and spoke with someone. She checked in back didn't have anything undeliverable I had to pick up there. She said they bring it in and if you have forwarding set it shows as undeliverable thengets relabeled and sorted. Then heads to the new address. She said my name sounds familiar and she remembers a bunch having to be relabled for one person yesterday. She said probably get then all at once monday. Shocked bounce bom

Can't sleep checked the mail drop 9 times today just in case. First time I've looked forward to the work week. lol!

Somewhere deep down in the depths of Dante's seventh ring of hell there exists a person that would set this whole thing up and then have all the boxes be like tic tacs, or lumps of coal or something.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's warranted here...but there would be a kind of elegant evil beauty to it.


Sigh.

This is the one time where I wish the PO would replace all the contents with a note about sending inappropriate items. That would teach em!

Well, I guess I don't think anyone has to be taught anything. I mean, reflect a bit on what you would have done in someone's place..and be honest with yourself...and then if you really would have done something that would have averted the situation you can be the teacher. As I thought about it I realized I probably would have done the same things. Considering that orders had already been out for a week...just changing all that with a new set could have resulted in more confusion and all. The 'address change' things were done in a timely manner and will work fine.

It IS kinda fun poking at him with a sharp stick though. Laughing
