Noting the lack of staple holes they are obviously fakes :-)

I enjoy mine while drinking a bottle of wine and reading the survival guide the day I get it. Though the Lemonhead goes better with the wine.

I'm glad I'm on the other side of the world to where my tickets are being delivered. I can still remember how much my feet hurt after running barefoot down the gravel driveway when the postie came with my high-school results. That was a good day though :)

I received my e-mail on the 28th, it actually shipped on the 29th (didn't know the Post Office worked Sundays ???) & will be delivered tomorrow the 3rd.

So expect about a 6 day turnaround after you get the e-mail.

YMMV

Happy - Happy Day.

Ticket, Vehicle Pass and Atomic Fireball arrived today.

The package was not supposed to have arrived until Saturday. But, I received an e-mail up-date during the night that advised it would arrive today. My postal lady knew that I was looking for it and she took the time to go out of her way to drive it down my winding dirt road to personally deliver it to me. What a great postal lady.

I figured out why the package arrived three days early. Ticketfly sent it air mail because they were afraid that if they sent it via ground that Tamarakay would snag the package as it traveled through Texas.

They only send candy to grumpy old men in the hopes that it will sweeten our disposition.

How do they know who the grumpy old me are, you might ask? There is a box in your burner profile that you check if you are a grumpy old man.

What about humourless you feminists who like to harp on about social justice issues?! Surely we need sweetening too?!

Although aren't these candies spicy or sour?

Good show kowtow.

Your package looks just like mine and on the same day. 'Tis a mystery why you did not receive the automatic tracking e-mails. I did nothing special.

Is it proper etiquette to save your fireball until you set up camp? You never know when you may need to gift your candy to some unsuspecting squatters.

Got my ticket today. No Ticketfly e-mail. No staples either-it was just loose in the shipping envelope. My sweet rural mail carrier drove the parcel over to my shop next to my house where I was working on my trailer. She said "I could tell this was important!" and I told her about the Atomic Fireball. She was amazed.

If she was amazed about the fireball, just tell her she needs to roll in the dust next year and she'll be even more amazed!

Delivery e-mail came a few days ago. When I checked the delivery status link yesterday, it said my ticket was still somewhere in California, so I almost ignored the doorbell when it rang this afternoon while I was on the phone in the other room. Curiosity got the best of me, and I opened the door just as the mail carrier was walking away. I think I might have scared her a bit with my anticipatory and somewhat zealous proclamation that I was, indeed, home and ready to sign for delivery. :lol:

It should be about 2 weeks, 6 days and 23 hours til I get my hands on mine. They're being sent to American Boyfriend's house and I fly in to SFO the afternoon of July 23rd. It'll probably be old news for everyone by then but I'll post a picture.

BBadger, I don't know bout you, but I've been used for much less than a postal address. At least Jovankat is going to see him long enough to take actual physical possession of the ticket, it could be worse. Got the t-shirt here. Wanna see it!

Mine came today. I save the Atomics, have a small box with them saved. One Sour Lemon...2 years ago? Had a little celebratory jump-around at the Post Office today, our postmaster gets a kick out of my ticket day each year. Beautiful artwork again this year.
