You were no "fool" to spend good $ on that. ;)

Howdy Mike,


invincibleoverlord wrote:Nice packing job Paul, you've got all the shipping goodies from foam to bubble wrap and such. Your place must look like a publishing house's shipping room when you're getting ready for the mailing. I can only imagine :lol: . Excellent across the board and our Feedback will reflect such.


Ah, the secret life of the "seller". It was 2:40 AM, not a creature was stiring all through the house, not even my Australian Cattle Dog Matilda. The kids and wife were asleep in their beds, visions of our morning trip to Kansas City danced in their heads. I flew to the door in a flash, with packages and packages I did dash. Setting them upon the living room floor, I slowly opend my creaky front door:

Image

See that one leaning on the left, Mr. Huckerby, that's yours, all wrapped up in brown paper goodness. The one on top of the left stack, that's addressed to Gary Gygax - what could that be? The left stack and the tub, is to all of my compatriots here in the States. The right column packed with care for their overseas voyage or flight - to Germany, Italy, and the UK. Two to Canada. That brown one on the bottom left, well that packing has already been spoilt but it looks nice in the picture.

I flew to the post office in flash, too bad I didn't see that cop car in my mad dash! Three in the morning and the officer ticketed me without one twitch. All I can say is she is one cold bitch. One hundred and sixteen dollars I will pay, all to make my fellow collectors happy the next day.

At four AM I headed for bed, visions of happy collectors danced in my head. All too soon the alarm did ring, and my wife's sweet voice began to sing:

"Get out of the sack and start to pack! No talk of invincible and huckerby,
a2jeff and aneoth, killjoy and bclarkie, chromatic and all. Now drive away, drive away, drive away Paul!"


Futures Bright,

Paul

Apologies :oops: I should have mentioned that I hadn't finished bidding after the first wins.

Looks like it might slide under the gap on the bottom of the front door :D

We should keep that pic on file for the newbie sellers (like me).  Here's how a pro packs stuff, kiddies.  :wink:

Well done, :D except now I am really curious as to what was being shipped to Mr. Gygax. 8O

Any chance we can get him to post here too? I'd love to see it happen and I know he posts on other boards. :D It is super cool that Stephen posts here now and would be awesome if we could get some of the other founding fathers as well. :wink:

Anyone care to chip in to defray the cost of Paul's speeding ticket?  I'll start things off by sending him $5 via PayPal.  Anyone else want to pitch in?

More than fair, we owe it to him, how do you just "send" someone PayPal cash? Is it an option?

Did Paul actually get a ticket?! 8O  I though that was all just part of "T'was the night before shipping......." story.

Howdy All,

No. no, no.  Absolutely not. :oops: Thank you very much, that is very generous but it was my own doing and therefore my responsibility. It was not my intent to draw financial aid from the group. Although, you once again prove that this is a good lot of folks with a fine sense of community. Thanks for that.

The joke is that there really was no reason for me to be speeding - I was the only one on the road at that hour! Also, if you pull a guy over at 3 in the morning and he's not drunk, stoned, or stealing something, you should probably give him a medal. Still can't believe she gave me a ticket for 45 in a 35 mph zone at 3 AM...


Futures Bright,

Paul

[email protected]#ch.  :evil:

That's just [email protected]#ked up.  I hate when cops do that.  Like the last ticket I got, sure...I admit I was doing 75 in a 55 (at least it was an interstate road).  But the fact that the highway patrolman had to dodge the other cars doing 90-100 mph to get behind me and pull me over, now that just scorches my ass!  :evil:  :evil:

Only later did I find out that same patrolman spend every night just ticekting anyone on the stretch of road (as everyone speeds on it).

:(

Good news though, as I am a "safe driver" in the state of Florida, I took it to court, and it was dismissed with $66 court fees and no school.  Now I drive a lot slower, at least for a few years so I can redo that scam if needed later on.  8)
