Still trickling - no hockey
Got 1 envelope today - today it was baseball
(this week: 1 football, 1 basketball, 1 baseball)
At least it was something.
Glad to see some of you beginning to get some mail though.
I see tomorrow in my crystal ball - maybe a good day for us!

Yeah... Still trickling.
What's with that?
Well the weather is crappy today so that means the mailbox will be full tommorow!
Don't know if that's what it means but sounds good. :)

was it a blue jays by any chance i have sent 15 to them with no reply yet

It was Ricky Bones - former MLB pitcher (with the Buffalo Bisons).
I wanted to try a few Jays but was reluctant after getting shut out by them last year - who did you send to?

I hear you Don - not a single signed hockey this week and only 3 envelopes total.
Did get back a purchase from ebay - happy.
I now only need 59 for my 1994 Parkie Tallboy reprint set (including the impossible from that group - like Sawchuk, Horton etc). I do hope to get a few more though - need Jean Guy Talbot, Al MacNeil, Jacques Laperriere and a few others that are gettable).

Maybe I'm glad I'm not the only one drawing blanks in the mailbox but I can't say that.
Hoping you guys get some soon, me too.
Let's see what Monday brings

I'm in the same boat fellas. One whole week with nothing.
I have to blame my wife, she revealed to the mail guy what was really in all the boxes being delivered.
July 8th, 2011, 09:20 PM
Safety first here folks!!
Tell nobody nothing.
I don't tell the neighbour kids or anyone else what gets in my box from time to time...

Ouch - thank you wife - now it is almost certain that your mailman has a new exciting hobby - one of my greatest fears.
Okay - hopefully the paranoia will end next week and we will be so busy opening envelopes that we won't even have time to post next week - rest up over the weekend!

OK -I really hate my mail carrier now. Wife tells me that he skipped mail delivery because the box was "blocked" by a brown paper bag with newspapers in it.
Not rain, nor snow, nor heat, nor gloom of night will keep them from their appointed rounds. But add a Kroger bag into the mix and all bets are off.

If we weren't all experiencing such a drought - that would almost be funny.
I am not going to work tomorrow because there is a pylon on the street!
