Lucky Last
The last of my junk finally arrived on the weekend so I was poking around for a box to pack it in when the postman dropped by with a parcel from Trep



Love the chocolates Trep, thanks so much. Luckily the kids had already brushed their teeth tonight when I opened it so I have a really good head start on them.


ps
Santa, you will probably be the last to get your gift this year but it will be worth the wait

Yikes!
After perusing this thread I almost feel shamed. Being my first time participating in the Christmas Gift Exchange, I really didn't know what to expect or the level of effort and creativity some of you take things to - which I must say is brilliant to say the least.

Being the ignoramus that I am (read, was) I opted to go very utilitarian with the gifts I sent out. Lesson learned. You all have done a great job and I'll try to step it up next year!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Don't sweat it. I get pretty neurotic about what to do, how much, etc. There are some impressive gifts, I have to admit, but it's not a competition....do what inspires you. Having said that, it does help to see what everyone else does....I think I've been guilty of peeking at previous years' threads....

Hello Modern Vespa riders....

I finally got the package boxed up with a shipping label on it. Taking it to the post office tomorrow. It may or may not make it by Christmas. I have high hopes that it will though.

I don't spend any time on the modern side so I am very glad that someone saw my plea to participate in the NSM side.

I love seeing all the goodies people get.

Yes an indecent amount of chocolate and other contraband arrived this week. The kids love the chocolate and it provided sustenance for todays hike in the woods.

Thanks so much Trep.

There were some club stickers in the box too... I hope they didn't get tossed with the box.

MJRally really delivered today. I got not one but two packages today, with a really nice Vespa branded mug, and another interesting Vespa branded mug, plus some coffee to put in them.

But that's not all. There was a vintage ornament to go with the small but growing collection, and a blank book (think journal) with the Vespa logo on the front.

Wow, thanks, MJRally!

I think the mask should fit inside your helmet for cold-weather riding too.

Enjoy!

HoHoHo and thank you to ValVitola! I received a package containing a Vespa key chain and magnet, as well as colorful coasters from Colombia. Unfortunately the box / holder for the coasters broke in shipping but I think I can fix it.

Val, there was a slight glitch in my shipment to you. I got the street number and zip code wrong - sheesh! The friendly folks at my local post office caught my mistake and said your gift should arrive in Houston tomorrow.

hey, look - it's a chick magnet :)

Me three! I think my wife found it after my favorite Vespa mug from our local dealer got broken and couldn't be replaced. Pretty cool mug, though I miss my old one....the way it always goes.

Just remembered it's Christmas Eve tomorrow.....

I am glad you liked it, I forgot to include the card and a Guatemalan little makeup bag I had bought . I realized two days after shipping but will ship it on my next trip to the US.

There are some (myself included) who sometimes like to wait for the holiday before opening gifts. Sometimes I get ahead of myself, but not this year.

Well, not a total waste.

Don't know why it couldn't eat that feckin' rabbit I saw running around while looking for the chicken.

Made my last mail run before Christmas (I check once a week) and was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of wonderful gifts from Dahoum awaiting me. 1. A vintage shifty Vespa made from Coke cans, which at one time belonged to Judy, and 2. An authentic "Tea Towel" from London. Love them both. Thanks Dahoum and Merry Christmas!

In a fitting mate to today's weather, being a white Christmas and all, take a look-see at what Jet Peddler sent to me.

Not being quite so tough as I once was, I have taken to wearing a balaclava when riding in the cold. This lately includes bicycle riding in the snow, a distant second to scooting (though, clearly necessary ).

Also a power adapter that I can hook my phone up to, so as to have my music and communication link maintained for those long, long rides.

Thanks Jet Peddler, and Merry Christmas!

Cheers,
Sully
