Before it gets to Canada, maybe a lot of the common stuff can be removed.. it cost a fortune to ship anything here. its all done with weight..
I shipped a box to the usa smaller than shoe box ,and I cant recall weight but maybe less than 8 pounds cost me almost 35 dollars.. I can imagine what it will cost through Canada then to Europe..
cheers

 

Who says it will make it to Canada, perhaps all items will be need here and only and Intellivoice and cart catalog will go.

Only 6 more stops before it comes north!......I think......I just hope customs doesn't deem it suspicious and tie it up too long.

Of course they did send down my favorite TV shows ever.  Corner Gas.  I guess that does it, there will be some very special treats for our friends up North.

OK, box came today - I have culled a good deal of the commons and stripped out all the doubles except the "Spikers", "Learning Fun's" and "Stadium Mud Buggies"! OK truth is that there were none of those unless they are un-labled carts of which there are about 10.

 

If anyone needs any commons please let me know. If any one has "special needs" let me know. I hope to ship the box on Friday. There is a fantastic assortment of game carts in this box as well as some very oddball shit stuff.

 

I've added a few, I hope cool, items. More later.

The half eaten bag of stale cheetos were meant for you, as was the boxed "Fun I". Also, the box may need replaced. One corner is held together with Wrigley's gum and packing tape. There were some nice singles in there too.

Came home from an incredible, soul-refreshing excursion to the bayou for NOJazzFest to find on my porch, a corrugated cardboard and packing tape sculpture! Very well done. Reminiscent of those tables at Ponderosa with an inch and a half of clear-coat laquer covering them.

And now... to get my pro-grade surgical equipment out and see what goodies might lie inside...

... Wow! Did I ever hit the jackpot! I think BBWW has committed a felony. But one of which I most certainly approve. All evidence points to him intercepting my long-winded, bourbon-and-tear-soaked santa letters for the last 33 years and shape-shifted into my personal Kris Kringle! I am looking at about a dozen things I'd like to own in this surfboard-waxed container. xxxooo
