    Its here! Its here! I've almost got my COTH cap BEFORE Merry and the rest of the California Clique! How's that for service!

    I have been tracking the progress of my cap which was sent to me so graciously by Everythingbutwings on Tuesday from Virginia. The cap had subsequently been to Memphis, Tennessee ("walking in Memphis!") where it switched planes and flew all the way across the States to land in beautiful British Columbia, when it, for some strange reason, apparently went back over the border to Spokane, Washington (to say hi to Bumpkin no doubt!!) before recrossing in to Canada and into Richmond, before being carefully placed on a special armored FedEx truck for safe delivery into the heart of trendy Kitsilano, Vancouver to the house of Jair.

    Sadly, I was not home to receive it yesterday morning "recipient not available" according to FedEx, but they kindly left me a card to sign indicating that I'd let them leave the precious cap on my doorstep in my absence on the redelivery attempt. Sorry COTH, I know it's a risk having my cap left out like that, but I WANT IT NOW ! I duly signed the card and left it, excited in the knowledge that in less then 8 hours I would be wearing my cap!

    The question is, will I get it before Merry and the others? Could I, a mere Canadian, receive my coveted COTH cap BEFORE the Californians? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] After all, I know that the cap is already in Vancouver, in fact, it could already be waiting for me in my mailbox as I type!

    Odds anyone? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    Who will get it first? Jair, or the Californians? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    All I can say is that if you get yours before Merry and Beezer, they may cross the border and take it right off your head.

    Never mind the Californians... what about the poor Georgians?

    You know, Georgia, the state between SC and FL, and only 2 states (635 miles) between it and Middleburg... As opposed to next to the Caucusus?

    Although apparently that is where mine must be headed to!

    Jair - I believe you will get it first. Technically you already have it since they tried to deliver to you. Whereas the Californians havent even gotten to that point yet. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    You'd better guard that cap! Beware, those Californians may snatch it right off of your front porch while you are at work [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I thought that the "B" was what was missing on a thong [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

Now I just need to get ETBW to give me his address....

    Wyahhhhhhhhh! I still don't have my cap, no Fedex delivery, no nada. I even have a sticker on my front door giving Fedex immunity from prosecution should they leave something on my doorstep with benefit of signature.

    Wyaaahhhhh! ETBW loves Jair more!

    Merry, Beezer - is there something you want to confess? Did you fly into Toronto last night and swipe my cap and fly back to L.A. on the red-eye?

    Wrong, Jair, Louise got her cap yesterday! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I'd be worried about leaving that cap on that porch, if I were you. We hear about the terrible crime problem you have up there in Canada. Why, we heard there was a jaywalking incident in Vancouver just yesterday! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    But there's only one queen seated before her PC, with a lovely cap arranged just so atop her head, isn't there? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    Hans took the digital camera to the office but shall instruct him to bring it home so that I may post a picture tonight -- if only to taunt Merry and Beezer with pics of my capped glory.

    Thank you Wingsy! Reciprocal package off to you this week darling.
