Is it cloth? I think I also see some other hand grips and whatnot. ;) At the rate we're eliminating folks from the queue, some of the stuff in there now may just make it to me!

Yeah you did! That box was more or less completely wrapped in tape. I replaced it just because the box had lost all of its structure and the corners were blown out. Didn't want it to start sprinkling crap out on it's travels.

BOC is in the mail again on it's way to TN!

Our postal delivery driver is going to LOVE this. He don't much like getting out of the car to knock on people's doors. Maybe I'll be nice and go outside and get it this time.

So does the postman sit in their vehicle and honk the horn until you come out? Seems sort of lazy to me...

One does. He's not the regular driver. The regular driver parks, gets out, and knocks.

EDIT
No, I also kept the "cannondale" seat wedge as seen there. The bar ends (which ended up not fitting quite right, dang), and the suntour dt shifters, because they wouldn't quite fit back in the box. What do I mean wouldn't fit? I'll let the next person explain.

Now your cat needs to put one of his/her old toys in the box...

Don't have any. . . well. . . that's not true. His favorite toys are pens.

Drillium Dude 04-20-12 10:13 PM

Dwellman: to whom are you sending the BOC? I'd like to update the list if I could - thanks!

What, how can you have a cat and not have any cat toys, we pulled that one from the reserves. Two cat toy boxes and there wasn't anything clean enough I could rob to throw in the box, our cats love their toys and it shows. One thing I got to know, did the dog treats survive the trip or were they pounded into dust.

Cat I've had since December. So not too terribly long. I did have two similar to what was in the box but they basically fell apart. Basically he likes pens and spent tp rolls.

The doggy treats are still there. Looked fine.

I repacked as best I could. Bagged some of the bits that were rolling around. There's a Glad / Hilshire Farms container with some interesting bits. So the next two people on the list might get some so-so stuff.

Couple things appeared to be partially or completely broken. I replaced those with working versions.

Glennfordx4 04-21-12 05:41 AM

The tabby in the third pic ( stripe ) is a pen thief, that and my wife's hair ties are all he needs to have a good time. All of our cats like empty TP & paper towel rolls but they get shredded to fast and make a mess.

smontanaro 04-21-12 06:00 AM

Please, no cat toys by the time it gets to me. My dog will be upset if she sees a bunch of frou frou toys.

I notice that all it takes is one person posting a picture of a cat and the entire thread gets hijacked! Cats are insidious with regard to people. ;)

No kidding - what's with all these cat-people, anyways?

Back to the bikes already :)

Oh, and a certain someone still owes us pics of the items he kept. Seriously, let's all keep an eye on the simple rules here and share your booty. Rules 8 and 9 state to take a photo of the box as-received and a photo/photos of what you take out.

And, of course, Rule 1 states if you can't play by the rules, don't play.

Remember what happened with the last game? We don't want to go down that same road, do we? If everyone does their part when they get the box, we won't have to.

Also remember: there's an audience out there just waiting to see whatchoo got :)

I PM'd Chef Bigs a couple days ago, never responded. I will try Atmdad. He hasn't posted in a month, so we'll see. If nothing from him, then off to photogravity.

mikeybikes 04-21-12 08:50 AM

Our cat, by the way, won't play with cat toys. His favorite toys are wire ties.
