    Shit boys... Sorry that the swap is going slow. I wanted it to be a good one, without the normal crap. But we lost a couple along the way. I've been holding out for the last couple swapers. Thought I had Flybills in all the xmaz packages+ other swaps Im in, but I was wrong... Didn't hear back from AK_ . So I'm just gonna send'm out. Any xtras not marked for the swap will be sent back. I'm sure this will be my last swap here.

    Two things. 1) Keep the extras and 2) just keep going. Some swaps go well, some don't. Stick around, the next one will go better.

    They are being held ransom until this rain stops!! Nah, but really they were supposed to go out on tuesday but some dead president closed all the p.o's. and I work during the time any of them are open. So without a doubt they are going out in the AM tomorrow.

    I tied an extra dozen to cover some guys one of the guys we lost, and I also grabbed another dozen right from my winter boxes to cover the other guy we lost in the swap.

    Hopefully some of us will actually get the chance to use them soon.

    Anyone have a camera that will take pics up close for the swap gallery?
