Operation Twel FourTEEN Marines of Christmas Update

From Susanna, a sage HAPPY suggestion for the care-bear boxes!

If you get the pre-fab US PRIORITY Mail box (it's a nice large box), you can
cram as much stuff inside as it will hold and the shipping is a flat rate of
$7.70. Yippee! A flat rate!

So I have sent lots of auto magazines and paperbacks and so forth. At that
price, cans aren't too pricey to send either. I also picked up a stack of them
so I can keep them in the house and the car and fill them when I get things to

raddave9: I haven't gotten an email back and want to make sure you got my initial one ~ I tend to have fat happy mistake prone puddies when typing addresses! Thanks! {:^)

Cool! I called the CAG, so I may end up re-re-packing our boxes.

That's a great idea. I crammed a box full of stuff and then bribed my bride to schlepp it to the post office to mail it...I hope she'll talk to me again by dinner tomorrow.

See? I told y'all Susannah rocks. (You hunters need to go to her site and check out her 'bou.)

Thanks for the tip! I just happen to have a buttload of those.... I'm assembling one as I type one handed
