Oh sure. Mock all those poor waiters, repeating their expressions of woe. I don't care what your cat says, you are just bad to the bone.

B-b-b-b-b-bad. Bad to the bone.

And for the record, I was not mocking anyone... just tossing you a bone, so you could sit back and laugh your evil cackle.

Yep - bad to the bone.

:D

The guitar has arrived in the US, but no other detail. You don’t suppose Evan has paid off the USPS to not update the tracking? Nahhh; he wouldn’t do that. Would he? :rolleyes:

Just funning around. I know he would. Busy with scooting and some home projects today... first day since we’ve been home that I didn’t get some guitar time in. Yet. :)

OT, but this is what a "waiter" does. ;)

And for the record, those "big fish"... yeah, they're mammals. :D

jdinaz 10-06-2018 08:27 AM

Great pics...yeah, I knew that "mammal" thing was coming. :) I hope your guitar arrives soon. looking forward to the report.

So, I ran the tracking number from AN Post through USPS... the guitar is currently "in transit to the destination" after being played by Postal Workers in San Antonio. With this being a "Monday Holiday weekend," it should likely show up on Tuesday. :)

In and out of Customs on the 5th.

I put the red strap (I had taken with us this summer with the X10 in mind) on the X20 today. Joan said, "That looks good on there - I think you need another strap."

;)

That's actually pretty good time. Looking forward to seeing/hearing the new family member.

Who is this, and what have you done with Evan???!!!

:D

EvanB 10-06-2018 06:03 PM

Evan is lurking around, checking things out. Seeing who is vulnerable. You're looking pretty solid; cool wife, great cat, nice guitars, good pics. Not much use in picking on you. Looking for new meat. Besides, can't be picking on a cousin--I leave that to nephew K.

Hey now ..I resemble that remark...or something' like that

A package for me from Ireland has been sitting in our local Post Office since Saturday afternoon. Well, I'm assuming so, based on the time it left our regional hub earlier that day. So, with Sunday and the Monday holiday in there, I expected to see those 3 little words we all want to hear: Out For Delivery.

Nope. Instead, when I checked this morning, I got...

"Sorry, we're currently experiencing technical difficulties with our tracking application. We thank you for your patience while we work to resolve the issue. Please check back."

Pretty sure the USPS is just messing with me. ;)

My darling wife said, "Don't put your life on hold today - you know deliveries run later than usual after a holiday weekend."

Pretty sure she's messing with me, too.

On the bright side, the tracking has been restored, stating that the package was checked into the local Post Office at 6:20 this morning, and "Expected Delivery on Tuesday, October 9th."

No, they don't deliver to our house here on this island, and there are no parcel package lockers big enough for a guitar at our centrally located boxes... so, I'll just wait to see if they leave the box at our Activity Office (sometimes they do that), or take it back to the Post Office where I won't be able to pick it up until tomorrow.

Yeah, they're all messing with me.

EvanB 10-09-2018 12:01 PM

How about the cat? Messing with you also?

By the way, the three little words are "experiencing technical difficulties."

FWIW, when my X20 came last month, I never got an "out for delivery" on the tracking system either. Just something similar to your "expected delivery" thing. And it ended up showing up that day pretty early. So you're probably golden in terms of that. But the situation with no mail delivery to your island, I can't give you any comfort on that one...

I do know that within a few days you'll have forgotten all about the waiting...
