As per DD's request, I'm chiming in to say I'm still alive and still would like to be on the list! This skip would also mean my projection of the first week of June would be wrong. It'll be last week of May unless, it skips others before then.

I'm not going to out anyone, but I can give a hint: starts with "photo" and ends with "gravity".

Refresco is out - unfortunately, I had to make that call thanks to a very observant C&V member.

Ann.Occupanther: please contact Yo Spiff for the follow-on mailing address. Sorry about this!

There will be no more Ultraspontaning of the BOC if I can help it

I replied to shadoman's address request that I wouldn't have enough to put in the BOC, but remembered some things to add, so I hope he gets my request to ignore first response and sends it my way...

I also messages cbchess, for address! Being proactive and all...

Thanks to everyone who's lately gotten in touch with their follow-on BF member - good deal. Gotta keep the lines of communication open so we can get the goodies to their rightful future owners

Looks like the BOC will be moving on early next week to the bumped-up Yo Spiff. We're on track; good to know we have others looking out for the safety of the BOC - I would never have had the opportunity to discover the issue that nearly derailed the box again, so Kudos to Yo Spiff for the excellent detective work.

Too bad he had to lose some bike parts IOT discover the issue, tho

What is the thing that looks like a paint-stirrer?

I got inspired by this thread and started a BOC on a photography site I am on. It's been fairly popular and I just mailed off the box again after it came back to me as the 11th person on the list. I mentioned this one and I was told I have to post pics of the cycling BOC there, just because it was the inspiration.

Haha, yeah. I thought it would be a good chance to try them out. If I like them I'll probably get some new ones and pass these on.
