    Okay, folks. Post up what you got from your Secret Santa, whether you do like I do, and open it right away, or you wait till Dec. 25. (I hate waiting!)

    (If your gift doesn't arrive, please let me know via PM. Thanks)

    Point of clarification:

    Are all the items excluded from selling on BT also included from being proferred as Secret Santa gifts?

    Live animals, for example?

    Like snakes?

    Not necessarily poisonous snakes, but one likes to have options...

    Send whatever you like, but remember that I have a spreadsheet of who sent to whom, so, if there's a problem...

    I live in Canada, sometimes driving the bus back and forth across the border. One day the Customs officer asked if I had my lunch with me.

    "Sure", says I.

    "What's for lunch?"

    "Roast Beef and Swiss, with hot mustard, on double rye."

    "NOT today!"

    Had to surrender my lunch, if I was going to bring my passengers into the US.

    So, I'm thinking no.

    My new gift hit the mail today. The post office said it should be about 8 days to clear customs and make it to the recipient.

    Mine was ordered, drop shipped for "processing" for value-added "services"; delivered, and will be enroute to its final destination shortly...

    By the time it gets to its intended, it will have traveled 4, maybe 5 states.

    Hope it don't spoil...

    or get hungry...
