Sorry, with work this week I never got out of school to get the package to the post office before USPS closed for the day. The joys of teaching with covid. My package is going out tomorrow morning.

Mine came in last night. I think I've been outclassed on the postage amount alone.

Looks like we're in good shape given the constrains and difficulties of 2020. I know several of the items I ordered as Christmas gifts will not arrive on time. Not a crisis by any stretch of the imagination.

Merry Christmas to all!

Got mine today! Can't wait to open it. After doing this the last several years, even my wife is excited! (which means I broke her :? )

I hope most if not all of you got your boxes on time. On Dec. 12th I sent a USPS Priority Mail package from CA to my mom in IL and it's still traveling. Looks like it went to Chicago where it sat for awhile, then went to Greensboro, NC. As of yesterday at 12:30 AM it was "on its way to its final destination." :roll:

Santa arrived just in time to keep the space under the tree from being completely stripped of presents after the Grandkids' loot was delivered.

What a wonderful adventure opening my box on Christmas morning.

Historical artifacts from around the world: License plates, foreign bills, hockey puck (we don't have these in Houston), rock, KLM glass, medical supplies (syringe, sterile gloves, poop bags, and more.
Relics from the early days of computers: PS2 mouse!, USB mouse, IP camera (can hook this up to Raspberry Pi), magnets from a hard drive (yep, I managed to pinch my finger), smartphone cover, forehead light, Bart Simpson digital watch!.
BMW swag: ID, ///M pedal cover, event pas ('cause what BMW CCA member doesn't need another lanyard!), key fob, 6-speed pocket shifter.

Thanks to Santa for triggering some great memories and to everyone who played along this year.

Some of that stuff looks awfully familiar; somebody’s been re-gifting! :laugh:

I think that re-gifting in the age of Covid-19 is a practical solution (that I may have taken advantage of myself.)
This way the items can move around until they find their true natural home!

I always do! This time felt extra special because I was able to keep a lot of the funny stuff together while we moved from CT to Miami. I try to keep a lot of the same stuff moving around together every year we do this.

Got mine on the 27th but wanted to wait to open it with my son who lives nearby. He is not feeling well, so I am going to open it without him tomorrow.

My box finally showed up on Sunday(?) afternoon; I think 2020 has been especially tough on the USPS.

Many thanks to Andy South for all the goodies he sent!

Image

The tastiest parts were the peach jam and the fudge! Unfortunately, a peanut allergy kept the fudge at arms length from me, but my family tells me it was awesome!

I've put the Ms. PacMan game to use; it's exactly as I remember the arcade game, but strangely it seems way more frustrating than I remember it from the days when I paid a quarter a game to play!

Got a few e28 parts that'll surely be put to use, especially the fuel pump relay and the brake pad sensors. There's a pair of what looks like rear sway bar links, but there are no part numbers, and they seem kinda short for the e28; Andy?

The red fingery thing in the photo... my best guess is it's a folding trivet.

All in all, some great stuff; some I'll put to use, and some that may find it's way to someone else next year!

I am so sorry about the fudge, if I had know I would have not made the peanut butter coffee liqueur chocolate fudge I would have left out the peanut butter. The red thing is a trivet. The rear sways are for the e34.


I also liked your box, love the calendar and the 2 way emergency radio. I think the small part of a game you sent is going to lead to use buying the whole game. Also like The mug, perfect color at Blue.
