So, there were a total of 6 people with missing packages. 5 of whom I have spoken with their Santa's and found out what is going on. All of it seems to be shipping delays and/or life complications preventing timely delivery.

The one person I have yet to hear from I will not forget about. The giftee was sent an email this afternoon stating as much so they know who they are.

If anyone has not gotten a gift and has not spoken with me about it, please, please, please get a hold of me so I can help!

hey there say, nick... very well done...

all in all, too, considering the vast amounts of mail,
6 is not so bad as to a holiday season...

two of which are over seas, so four, is even less
not so bad...

odd things, sometimes: like my cards...
all sent over seas, and most were delivered in the 1-2 time frame for letters? i think it is...

and only one or two? took about 25 days... :)

Thank You, Strider for putting this SS event together.

What happened, did some gifter happen to get a giftee he hated?

Reading this thread is such a treat. It's so much fun to see the variety of gifts exchanged. This is a stellar Supertopo tradition!

Thank you, Lynne. This was truly one of those occasions where I felt blessed to give back to a fellow Tacoan.

And a BIG thank you to Gal for her generous and perfect gift, and to Stryder for his efforts in putting this together. Happy New Year to everyone who makes this forum what it is.

Cheers, Loran

Some close-ups of treats from Abend.

Game and book. I haven't tried the game, yet. The book is apparently based on something on television - hopefully that doesn't mean I'll have to buy a TV?!

A new CD, with 40 (!) songs on it. Plus a note saying "jstan rocks!".

A rather dashing beanie baby, who is apparently named Groovey. In his left ear, some rather unusual ornaments, which bear close examination.

Thanks to Strider for all the organizing!

Ok after finally learning that the usps guy wasn't delivering packages over the holidays I tracked down my awesome gift from Naitch! Thanks I can't wait to start using them. I can't help but wonder what the upstairs neighbor thinks. Every time I do a pull up the wall mount squeaks. He must think I have a very regimented nightly routine. 100 pumps and I'm done.

Thanks again the grips are awesome. I guess upside down sticker counts as a cosmetic second...

Derek - glad they finally arrived safe and sound. So much for trying to beat the mail rush and mailing them early! :-/

Yeah, the upside down sticker is the "second". Actually, now that I look at them in the photo, maybe it would be a good idea if we put them all on that way so that no matter how they're oriented, one logo will be right side up. :-)

Propose a new rule - you must post a picture of what you received!!!!!

hey there say, lolli...

you can stretch them out on frames, for artwork...

or of course if too big,but not much, use over shirts or for
pajama tops, etc...

you can also make them into nice little soft packpacks...

or make them into pillows...

or take them in on the seam, if they are too big...
if too small, i know that's not the answer, :)

if too small, perhaps make them into placemat type pads for the
supper with climbers, :)
or pot holders, just insulate them...

not sure what else... others may have some neat ideas, :)

can't see them yet, due to dail up...

just saw them... art work would be nice, for the pink ones!

and then:
i like the camp 4, just as it is...
just 'toss it down' and use it for just about anything...

very fun 'sign' as to just 'basic versitility :)
