I'm about due to unload some crap.

I've read the rules, will abide, yada yada, can I play if I've seen exactly zero episodes of Dr. Who? What if I sometimes enjoy listening to The Who? Time me is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Ha ha - glad I wasn't the only one wondering that

I should be back in WA well before the box gets to me - cool. I think I have a couple of things to add, plus a cat toy or two.

Ha, great. I'll be adding a cat to my family of two after the holidays settle down. I'll be keeping an eye out for feline paraphernalia and may add one or two.

Unload you shall, but substitute The Who for Dr. Who? The Crapmaster is feeling like a substitute for another guy...


Done!

The proper method for posting is to do so while drinking.

Hmmm, perhaps I should add a rule...

The box has safely landed in Tucson, AZ, where we're still riding in regular short-sleeve jerseys most days.
Open box pics will follow shortly...

The crap-digging is complete! Lots of cool and...ummm, interesting crap in there.
These four pieces have found a home:



The bell will immediately land on my wife's coppertone '64 Collegiate, "Goldie."
The car will assume full duties with my nearly-four-year-old son tomorrow sometime around 7am.

Thanks, I was momentarily inspired.

@RaleighSport: The cat-chewed corner was dumb luck. Or fate.
@MZilliox: Box will ship tomorrow or Tuesday; watch the PM box for tracking.

Box is away! Scheduled arrival in Grants Pass, OR: 26 Dec.

EDIT @gugie: If you could keep me in rotation for the next round I'd appreciate it.
