Therrrrrrre grrrrrrreat!

Thanks, Jess.

I also saw your note that there's a hidden feature to the patch. I haven't figured it out yet. If I hold it up to a black light, is there a hidden message?

...a few minutes later...

Ha! I figured out the hidden feature! Cool! Cool! Cool! I'm totally not telling even by PM, so there!

I'm surprised your patch arrived so soon, considering your location.

Glad you like the patch.

I doubled-back to the house after I passed the mailman's truck on the main road, just to check if I had a delivery from Jess today. Nope.

I didn't actually do them in alphabetical order, so being that you're in CA, I would expect yours to be there fairly soon.

i received one inaugural: M O D E R N Vespa patch.


jess,

thank you, for your kindness and generosity. your gesture of providing this forum and offering patches speaks volumes of your vision and character.

the worth that this forum brings to each member cannot be measured, but collectively as we share our knowledge and passion, the value of the our community is priceless. (i know that just sounded hokey, but i'm sure i speak for all of us here.) truly.

i shall wear it with the pride of being a charter member. this forum truly embodies the fun spirit and comaraderie that is so missing in lesser venues.

I received mine today, and I echo everyone's sentiments of Jess.

Is the hidden message, "John is dead"? Oh wait, that was the Beatles. Will it stop a bullet? Does it grow hair? Never mind, I figured it out.

Mine came! Thanks, Jess!

I am officially a member of the Modern Vespa Brigade.

I think I am a little slow on the uptake, though. I haven't found the "hidden feature" yet (though I have a suspicion what it might be).

robotribe - you did a nice job sewing that on, much better than I did. Did you use black thread inside the border or red thread outside? Or neither?

I used red thread and sewed on and around the border--very carefully, trying hard not to get the liner inside the jacket. Took a rookie like me about an hour in front of the TV.

It looks awesome on the jacket, jess! Great color choices on the patch, especially for my color jacket.

use a 1/2 inch curved needle...really simplifies having to worry about the liner... don't ask.

Just something to think about when you get your patch...
At $3.00 each, 100 patches would cost $300. Jess' actual cost may below, or above, the illustrative $3.00 figure. We may never know, and the real cost is immaterial. Let's go with what we do know. We do know that was one kind act, and one class act.

I love the secret pocket, and it was very generous of you to put the $5 bill in there for emergencies!
