There were other goodies in the envelope but the post office said it would require a customs form. Not knowing how hard that was to deal with I started pulling stuff out until it fit through a 1/4" slot. The Greece trip is a definite for the Vespa Club the Mediterraneo in May. Just not sure if I will do that one but others from MV will be there.

It seems like every year I make some kind of clerical mistake and someone gets left behind and this year is no exception. Someone sent in their address and for some reason that I can't explain did not get matched up.

If there is anyone out there that is on the fence about whether or not to join I could really use your help. Or if someone wants to fill in for my screw up it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

No worries!! I also had to "reshape" the envelope I sent out. It's the gesture that counts!!

Thanks again!!

Enjoy! It is from our favorite local sugar house. I have also added it to Buffalo Trace bourbon for a nice winter drink!

So, on Friday an envelope arrived at home from Greece, not somewhere that we have had mail from before. Opening the envelope was certainly exciting when a suitably sized tee shirt emerged, but wait (to quote a terrible set of tv advertisements in NZ) theres more. At the bottom of the envelope was some small bits and pieces and heaps of stickers; and you cant have too many stickers.

SaFis, I certainly do like the gifts, just waiting for an excuse to wear the tee shirt now. We have a plan for at least some of the stickers.

Thank you Karen Scoots! My box came today. I’ll be getting my gift sent out soon.
I couldn’t wait to open it up.
We just so happen to be Facebook friends so she knows that my husband and I keep honey bees.
Got a wonderful holiday throw pillow. A super sparkly ornament. A bee necklace and a notebook with a wasp rider on it.
Looking forward to seeing everyone’s gifts. (
I gotta get ideas for next year. 😉
This is honestly my most favorite time of the year is when we do this. 💞 my scooter 🛵 family.

Ugh. Used the email function to send in the pictures to this thread and it duplicated and put some weird symbols in. So sorry.
