    Crap, I spent 97 cents for that box plus the pushpins that came with it. I was expecting many years of use from that. Flies didn't get squashed did they?

    Your Flies Looked Great Hed. The Box Just Fell Apart As I Pulled It Out Of The Envelope. Linda Didnt Find One On Friday, She Will Look Again.

    Looking Forward To Seeing The Rest Of The Flies Guys.

    Later,

    If you can duck tape it that's fine, not like it was my favorite plastic box.;)

    It Was Far Past The Point Of Being Salvaged With Duck Tape. It Would Of Been Better Off Sitting On The Head Of An Exploding Nuclear Bomb.

    I Found One Just Like It In My Desk At Work. I Will Send It Out To You.

    Later,

    this is the first time I've ever come close to doing this :(... I was in a rush cause my lunch was kinda short that day and had a lot on my mind. All I can say is at least I'm not the only one who's (almost) done it!

    Why would anyone think you're being an ass? At this point, you've been more than reasonable about my personal gaffs in getting my flies in. Hopefully they'll get there soon and you'll like the results! :)

    James,
    I Know That People Have Lives Outside Of This Forum And Some Times The Forum And The Activities Take A Back Burner To Life. I Just Wasnt Shure How You Guys Would Take It. Some Guys Though Are Wanting To Go Out And Test These Fine Flies That They Have Been Waiting For.

    That Said I Am Looking Forward To Getting Yours And Toms Flies. I Have Not Heard Anything From Tom Since His Last Post On Here. I Aint Doing This To Piss Ya Guys Off. Every Guy (or Gal) On This Board Is Like A Brother (or Sister) To Me. Ya All Have Shared So Much Info (and Useless Crap) With Me That I Would Do Just About Anything (within Reason) For Anyone On Here.


    Once Again, Looking Forward To Seeing The Flies,

    Ty
