That was me sir. I deleted the post because I had some difficulty getting to the post office with my work schedule. I'm working 5a.m. to 5p.m. Mon - Fri and 5a.m. to 3p.m. on Saturdays. When my schedule opens up I'll ask to join again.

I thought maybe I was going crazy! Just let me know, and if anyone else would like to join in the fun, just ask!

Box received! I get all my packages sent to work because of potential theft when delivering to my doorstep. Reception's comment: "that box is heavy!!" 😆
I think I can get it in the mail Friday. Monday at the worst.

Yep, but it all works out in the end. What a fun job! I can't believe you gave this up! You miss it and want back in, don't you??

Soooooo, the mail person just dropped off a heavy, large flat rate box, with parts I need for work.
Completely out of the blue, this conversation follows:

One of my kids says "Ooooh, did you get the Box Of Crap again??"
I say "No."
The other kid says "Oh, that's too bad. Hopefully you'll get the Box Of Crap again!"
First kid replies "Yeah, will you be getting the Box Of Crap again?"
I say "I don't know, maybe."
Both kids "Yeah, I hope you get the Box Of Crap again, that would be cool."

I'm still chuckling.

That sounds like a request to be added back to the list...

Not at this time. Going to be doing too much traveling this summer. Perhaps later in the year.

@hazetguy,

The solution is to keep your kids home while you travel. They clearly can handle the responsibilities, and a quick check of the rules shows no age limit.

@hazetguy, please teach your kids to speak properly. It's box o' crap, not box of crap.

@t_e_r_r_y, welcome back, and welcome soon.

Now you've done it. Never suggest that the Box O' Crap should move slower.

Eight names is the perfect number of names to have on the BOC waiting list. It's a zen thing. When that gets down to seven only, please add mine again, O Crapmanster/

Ack! I the box went out Monday and should land in NE Friday if it hasn’t already. Pics are on my DSLR and will be forthcoming.

There was some crap that was in the box three times ago and I still couldn’t figure out what it was for, so it got composted. Some other crap just couldn’t fit back in and was replaced with fresher crap.

Stay tuned.

While there was not a quick response, he did get it out sooner. I had no worries about @mountaindave Sometimes stuff happens.

150 posts?

I've been a bike geek since I was 12 (I'm 45 now), my box(es) of bike crap are deep, and obscure, what would I put in the BOC? Hard to say, depends on what I took out. But, once I hit the requisite 150 posts I'll be applying to have my name added to the list!
