    I think my SS forgot my unit letter. UPS had a delivery exception. Hoping it comes tomorrow

    Sorry to my Secret Santa - dealing with Family issues over the Holiday has been dragging me down. I got mine and it was a DIY watch kit (not the manual type). A Timesquare digital watch. I can solder bigger parts but this one is so small - scared this time :D

    It was UPS's fault! They said the address was not valid, so they dropped the unit letter. Tracking info says it was corrected and out for delivery today. Let's hope!

    That's one fine recording.

    I must have missed this, somehow. Cool thing you all are doing.

    I just re-read my UPS comment, and realized that it sounded like I was angrily blaming someone. This was not the case at all. I was just making a sarcastic, good humored jab at the good old United Parcel Service. Sometimes the internet is not the best interpreter of sarcasm...

    I'm glad everything worked out! Happy Holidays!

    My wife called me this afternoon to tell me I had a package delivered. When you get my age, old timers slowly starts setting in. I knew I didn't order anything, nor was I expecting anything. On the way home, I kept racking my brain as to what the package may be, who sent me a package.

    Got home and ate dinner, still racking my brain about the package. After dinner I thought I would check out the package. Along with my name, the sender added my AK username. All righty then, we are getting somewhere. He did include his return address but I did not recognize the name. I sent Ernie aka luvvinvinyl a PM to see if he could help me. As it turns out, he is my Secret Santa aka Marc Holland.

    Marc, I am blown away regarding my gift. I know it cost more than what our limit is, but it just shows the generosity and the type of members we have on AK. Thank you very much for my gift. It is very much appreciated.

    Oh, I didn't mention what my gift is. It is a Fluke multimeter.

    Glad you like it. The 76 always served me well until I got an 87.

    I just got back from a trip and my secret santa package arrived! My SS got me two albums - Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, and a really cool Record Store Day pressing of Jaco Pastorious' Modern American Music...Period! I don't have either of these, but they are exactly what I like to listen to! I can't wait to check them out. Great gifts. Thank you secret santa (whoever you are)!

    I got a very sweet copy of The Grateful Dead's RSD release "Rare cuts and Oddities 1966" which is pretty much right up my alley. 180 gram pressing too :D

    Thank you, AK Secret Santa!! :thmbsp:
