According to USPS delivery confirmation, the mystery box went out from the recipient's post office today. This means it should have been delivered.

I got it, I got it!!!! Bouncey

I saw the box on my front porch and couldn't figure out what it was. I was trying to remeber if I had something coming from Ebay but didn't recognize the return address. I was so surprised and excited!!! I went through the box 3 times and thank god I did because the first time I was so excited I missed a couple things. I put in lots more than I took out, now there are 2 plastic boxes inside the white box which will be packed back in the brown box that came to me. Only it will have a new name on it!!!!

I want to send it to someone I know has never had it or is expecting it soooo....I have to see if I can get an address from Harris

I was so excited yesterday that I rudely forgot to thank The Promo Hunter for sending it to me. THANK YOU!!!!!

I am having a hard time getting the address for the person I was going to send the box to next. Harris does not have it =(

I have one more source and if I can't get the address then I will have to pick someone else.

Wendi,

You are welcome. I'm glad you found some good stuff for your collection.

I hope you can find the address you need. This was my first time to receive the mystery box and I hope you can send it along to another first timer. It really is a wonderful surprise.

It was my first time too, and I really enjoyed it!! I wish we could get more mystery boxes going because I really had fun getting it!

I think I have the address I need, sure hope it is the correct! I will be going to the post office after work so it will be on its way this evening!

I believe the 2 original mystery boxes are gone and I don't know whatever happened to my care package. This is the "Spawn" Mystery Box.

It left my area last night, it is staying in the US and going to someone that is probably least expecting it!!! I sure hope I had the correct address!

I can't wait, I am just excited for the next person as I was when I found it!!

I have reviewed all 47 pages of this thread and prepared a list of all the recipients and locations of Box A, Box B, The Care Package and The Spawn.

I did this because I wanted someone to get it that never had it before. I would like to share the list on this thread and we can just add to it each time someone new gets a box but I do not know if that would cause any problems. So I am asking first so I don't get Twak

Sounds like a question for Barrett! I have no problem with it, other then it would be best if the names were all in one post, rather then multiple posts. Groupee only allows so many posts.

So maybe it would be best if you started a new post called "Mystery Box Recipients" or the like and kept appending the original post with the names of those who received the mb. What do you think? I nominated Wendi as official MB Tracker...unless Barrett wants the post.

And while we are on the subject of this type of thing, I would like to see us start another post/thread where those who were interested would offer me their permission to give out their address solely for the purpose of mailing you the mystery box. I have many of y'alls names and addresses from your profile, subscriptions, orders, etc. and have received a couple of requests for addresses from members asking me for addresses and I have felt very uncomfortable doing so. So if we had a list of those who are cool with me doing so, then I would feel like I am covered. If everyone is cool with this, I'll offer to be this clearinghouse but I nominate the same person who acts as MB Tracker to be the one that keeps a single post updated with these member names.

Cool?

OK, HERE IS THE RUNDOWN
Box A is dead.
Box B was taken out by hurricane Katrina. It came back to me with 99% of the cards with 50% of more water damage on each card. It had to be scrapped and I have yet to put a replacement into play. Basicly my new business, my son is now in kindergarden(lots of afterschool projects and homework), and a major health crisis has kept me busy.
Care Package-- I have no clue where it went.
Spawn of.... is out there.

Wendi has asked and I think it is an excellent Idea for her to make a list of everyone who has receive any of the boxes. If you have receive any of the boxes drop her a nice e-mail with
You card talk id and location and which box(es) that you have receive with MYSTERY BOX RECEIPTIANT in the header line.

Box B was taken out by Hurricane Katrina?! Oh my Gosh, what are the odds of that!? Shake Head

Has the thread been started for us to give our permission for our address to be given out? I definitely want to be on the list, I'd love the mystery box!

PS- I hope everything is ok at home Barrett. Smile

From my point of view that care package doesn't count as that's between you and your buddies, not open to the entire community as Barrett's were.
Though, I'm sure others who haven't received any of them may think the same about them all.
It's not a case of who you know, but rather who you haven't had a spat with/disagreed with.

I know I will never see any of them again as I'm not liked by some here. But those some are ones who have some say in what goes on around here. Or direct links to The Powers That Be. And no, I don't mean Mods.

I hope that many of the people who haven't received it do so, regardless of their location.
If I (the Ebay postage complainer) can send it to Norway anybody can.

*sigh* It's 4am I'm going.
