I've been tracking packages with additional persistence for the last week, ever since Ron chose me, the Screaming Muskrat, to take on 2 Ton Thom in his cigar battles. In the middle of last week, the package arrived in Little Rock, but then it mysteriously was "missent," which I think is a postal term for "I have no f***ing clue." I've also been tracking the second half of my newbie sampler trade, which John (apollyon9515) was sending back to me. That one, if I believed the USPS tracker (and I did), was supposed to be back Saturday, but it didn't arrive. Early this morning, the trackers updated. They said delivery tomorrow, which let me know that I was absolutely safe to return to my mailbox and check the mail.
Then I saw this:
Turns out my poor mailbox didn't stand a chance. Not one, not two, but three bombs exploded inside it.
First, because he's been waiting the longest to see that it arrived safely, is the Shuckins Bomb, which was devastating. (You can see the imposing contest sticks in the back. Thom, I'm ready for you brother!)
Then is the newbie bomb, and you guys sure know how to bomb the ever-living s**t out of a newbie!

The third was from another John (lostdog13):
I am absolutely astounded by the generosity of these three brothers. Thank you all so very much, and I hope it won't be too long before I can blow something of yours up.
