    Mailed mine on the tenth lf you don't have them by tues. I wil tie some more and fed ex or ups. My flies from Irafly (swap) took ten days to get 20 miles to my house. I'm expecting another package mailed priority on march seventh, starting to lose faith in our mail system. Can't rule out that I messed up the address
    Its starting to feel they are out to get me though. Doug

    Hi all,

    Thanks for getting these done so promptly. I've updated the list of what i've received, but have a mystery- Floyd from AZ sent me some improved easy beetles, but didn't indicate what his WFF screen name is. Floyd, please pm me to ID.

    And Doug your faith can be restored in the USPS I got your gorgeous flys.

    Thank you all for your contributions- this is shaping up to be a great swap!!

    All right all, we are getting close to the end of the month. With March 1 approaching fast...
    A couple of you (not to name names- Annie) need a reminder...
    All kidding aside, thanks for participating and being so prompt with these- the flys look great!

    Flies are "in the mail". Lady at the mail counter asked me if I had any hazardous material in the package and I answered "only if you're a trout"!

    Somebody this ugly and with a southern accent...not a chance!
    The only threat I can muster is against critters with a pea-sized brain, and all too often they win!

    Gefilte

    did you get mine yet ?
    I am worried the guy at the post office was distracted on the amount of postage given a famous model was behind me in line at the post office in Magnolia


    They haven't come back to me but I think they should be there by now given neither rain nor hail nor dark of night would keep that guy behind the counter from stairing at the customer behind me

    I would have said something but there is some reality to the phrase
    GOING POSTALE


    reminds me why I like face to face swaps so much


    let me know
