    Nathan, a couple of local folks asked if they could still place orders. How long do you anticipate your surplus stock will hold out?

    So, this mailed on Monday from my early order, I wonder what shape it will be in when it gets to Colorado. Hummm.

    I remember last years excellent handling by the post office! :(

    What do you think Nate? Get here soon, next week or by Xmas?

    I'm an optimist. I say soon. In better shape too, I upgraded the mailer quality this year after learning about how last years mailer fared in the caring and gentle hands of the worlds various Postal Workers.

    Got mine yesterday!

    Thanks Nathan.

    I would make one suggestion on the mailer......put a DO NOT FOLD sticker on it. Hoping the bend will come out w/o to much persuasion.

    That sometimes doesn't work if you live where they put mail/flats in a Mail Box container (stand alone Mail Boxes). I have less than 45 working days with the Post Office (retirement:wink:)

    THE Calendar came today. My letter box is a little oversize. While the mailer was creased the contents came out pristine. The April picture brought back memories of father/daughter times and the July picture is breathtaking. Good job! Thanks for the goody too.

    Actual conversation, names removed and slightly paraphrased.

    Other Person - Nate, did you send my calendar yet, I don't have it.

    Me - Yep, went out Monday, just be patient, this is the USPS

    Other Person - Dang it. Someone near me got theirs already. That person always gets the cool stuff first.

    PM 5 Min Later - Other Person - Ohh, I went and checked the mail, It was there. Calendar looks great this year

    To that Other Person, you know who you are. Thanks for laugh.

    Guess I will wait on today's mail, see if the calendar has made it. I'm now suspecting by New Years. :(

    I will PM later :)

    I know

    Bad form to quote yourself. Low and behold! The M/A 2013 Calendar was on the porch on Saturday, pristine shape too.

    Not tire tread marks this year, we do wonder where the hell it has been since the day it was mailed the Monday before Thanksgiving. :)

    Thanks, Nate, superb calendar. :Thumbsup:
