    I guess the way I’ve always known it to be is you post a pic of the gifts as they come in and not update the first post if it’s multiple gifts. So I had no idea. I don't check back. I guess maybe say I’ve updated my original post for future SS?

    Well obviously I’m your SS. I was going to get you a gift card to some steak house that’s a few miles from your house but I couldn't get an email.

    Merry Christmas.

    Did you edit the original set of pics to add the 3rd?

    If so, people aren’t going back and checking old posts. New post with pics from anything in a new package

    He’s probably concerned with his likes-to-posts ratio. I get it.

    Not that I have some great ratio (no idea where I'd find it anyways) but this thread definitely throws mine screwy as I give out all the likes itt. Post basically anything and there is a 90+% chance I'll be liking it.

    Fair enough. I wasn’t trying to deny you your likes or more importantly properly thank you for your gifts. I appreciate the time effort and money that one puts into SS and I truly commend you on your choice of gifts. Merry Xmas to you and yours and I hope the other Santa treats you as well as you’ve treated me.

    I wasn't worried about the likes. I was worried that you didn’t get the gifts. Then I thought you were being a bum and not following the rules of posting the pics. Glad you got everything. Thank you. Merry Christmas and have a happy New Years. :beerchug:

    When I started doing this I had stuff sent there because I was in an apartment that had way more potential for issues. I just never changed. Also Her and my dad find it hilarious that we do this. My dad also has been known to lurk TMB for ND stuff time to time. I'm an only child so we all keep tabs on what each other are doing. Hell my dad and I leave for a bro trip Thursday to Dallas. #Notre Dame Fighting Irish can give you a better idea of what my old man is like.

    Beeds07 the second gift arrived . Not sure if I need to be on the lookout for anything or if this was the last one. In either case thank you. It’s a great gift. Will put it to good use tonight or sometime soon thereafter.

    Awesome, awesome job! I really do appreciate it! This is the reason I signed up, to get something I wouldn’t have a chance to ever get if it wasn’t for SS.

    A box!? 18lbs? What could this be?

    Bubble wrap! (I can use this in my SS’s presents that I’ll be sending out tomorrow)

    A pair of shoes!? :shocked:

    What is this inside?

    :quagmire:

    :swagstrut: My daughter LOVES these. Santa is bringing her the LOL dollhouse :facepalm:


    :nomnom: Can’t wait to try one of these this weekend.

    :huh:

    Another shoebox!? Will there be a pair of Maddens in this box?

    :moar::lovelove: Oh hell yeah!

    :drunk:Can’t wait to try these!

    Seriously. Thank you so much enjj i seriously appreciate it all.

    My daughter said, “Daddy! These are better than M&M’s!”

    Think of the original M&M but with a thinner candy shell that actually has taste. The chocolate is definitely sweeter too than what we’re accustomed to.

    With the chocolate being sweeter, it wouldn’t be for everybody but I actually fine them to be enjoyable. I’ve eaten a couple handfuls already.

    Srs I take more joy out of TMB SS than buying for my family. Fam just exchanges lists, no element of excitement or surprise. Takes the Christmas magic out of it.

    I've gone every weekend the past three weeks to the flea market and antique stores looking for one thing for my SS, but there is apparently one lady that collects this certain type of item around here and buys them up almost daily.

    I'm going to try one more time today, if I can't find it I'm just going to send what I have and keep looking. :(

    Dear My SS,

    I will be out of town from 12/24-12/28 (Dominican Republic) and then out of town from 12/29-1/2 (Geaux Tigers). If the gifts arrive between now and the 28th I will post them up on the 28th. Don’t worry about me being out of town, I have a camera and my old lady next door neighbor usually grabs my packages if she doesn’t think we are home. So if theres anal bead’s in there they will be put to good use.

    I did indeed. Picked it up Thursday night after happy hour. When I approached the store front, I could see various cuts of meat in the deli counter, and this guy:

    925009BB-3A5D-448E-95A3-642D88E04A2E.jpeg

    I started to tell the older gentleman behind the counter who I was and he says, “Ahh, I know exactly who you are.”

    My girlfriend and I broke it open today in preperation for an afternoon/evening of bowl game watching.

    The haul:

    Meats – Genoa salami, prosciutto, mild and spicy sausage

    Cheeses – Asiago, brie, cheddar, manchego and provolone

    We’ve sampled everything except for the sausage. It’s all delicious. Thanks, Secret Santa.
