I posted an update on the "Still placing orders" thread on a shipment that eventually met an ill fate. I came home today to find a package from Jeff with a bunch of the sticks that I originally ordered, but never received.
I am once again humbled by this BOTL's generosity. Many thanks to Jeff, and thanks for lifting up my spirits after getting the dreaded empty box in the mail.
Yes, there is a Father Christmas, and he goes by Harley33.
