I sent a message to 7centsworth and hope to hear back soon. Only my 2nd year doing the Christmas Gift Exchange and hope it's as nice as it was last year.

There has been a big red banner running at the top of the Main Forum page for awhile now.

We don't want people to get TOO spoiled. If YOU send a pull tab, then everyone else will feel obligated to one up you and send some can slaw or maybe a beaver tail or maybe if they REALLY want to show off a Felix penny

My Exchange match (JackalopeZL1) and I have now traded addresses and will both be sending out our Gift Exchange packages shortly. As the crow flies, the trip for a package from Boston to Northern California is about 2590 miles (according to Google Earth's "RULER tool").

Looking forward to Ken's surprise package.

Jim

I am humbled by mascard1's generous and thoughtful gifts. I hope that he doesn't mind me posting a picture:

Jimther and I swapped gifts. Kind of fun being that we are on complete other ends of the good ole US of A. The package he sent me showed up today and I couldn't be more pleased. A ounce of silver in the form of a prospector coin! a few awesome coins and some history to help identify finds!!! Love it.

But best of all so far has been the pleasant experience of meeting Jim and swapping stories. Merry Christmas 🎅 everyone!! And thank you Jim..
