What can I say, with all the surgery I've had so far this year, I'm behind...... where's the "Slacker" button when you need it? 8D

I might try this heat transfer method before sending out the image. I wondered also how much smudging might occur through the mail. Thanks, everyone, for your input!

Once you try the heat method, you'll never go back! ;) You definitely have to have a toner based ink. Ink jet won't work. I print out several stamps I want to do all on one page and go to the library to make a copy. I've been told you can save and reuse the copied image if you need to redo the stamp for whatever reason. I haven't tried that.

I was just wondering a couple of weeks ago if he was still in LB'ing. Although I only found one of his boxes it was a neat stamp. I met him once at a event in NC and he was very nice and I enjoyed listening to him talk about his adventures.
Prayers for his family

Yep! You should try it sometime. It's sometimes fun to dredge up an old post and reply to it like it's brand new. *nodding* =)

Yeah, and while you're at it, you guys should go update your links in the Wassa widget.

Our engineering staff know that if they can work any of these into their investigations or reports, I give bonus points!!

Not quite the same thing but I was a science major in college and a couple of us played a game where in EVERY paper we wrote, we inserted the made up but biochem sounding word "postlyptic".

In three years, I got it circled on a paper one time with a couple of question marks beside it.

Would love to plant some. We relocated and there are a depressing lack of stamps out here.

Thanks for letting us know. So many people come and go from this hobby, it becomes hard to keep track of them unless you become close. I always enjoyed talking with him at events.
RIP Walkin Orange.

I'd just use an alias account for that purpose. You can call it the "cooledcoyote ghost" because you're being followed by a "ghostly" persona who isn't "real." =)

I have an awesomely named "Box Found" alias for this purpose.

Seriously the best trip I have ever been on. If I could afford it I would go again tomorrow!

It was so peaceful, (except for the honking of the penguins), clean, (except for the penguin poop) so exhilarating! Beautiful, unpopulated...again except for those penguins!

They were so cute to watch, they just didn't have a care in the world. They came right up to us and checked us out.

Hi all! Just a reminder that this concert (+box) is this Sunday at 3pm!

Here's a little sneak peak of the music... https://www.facebook.com/baymele/videos/204964970382689/

And as an extra bonus, I heard that the venue has a large ninja training course set up in their massive backyard... ;)

Hope to see you there!

Three spots left on Holiday Cookie Exchange II! For this swap, you will include a stamped image AND a recipe ! This is a great way for us, spread out all over the country, to participate in a fun holiday tradition! Stamp does not necessarily have to be of the recipe's end product, and the swap is not limited to the Christmas holiday. Deadline end of December.

My job performance is based on my UPH (units per hour) numbers. If the person in the aisle ahead of me doesn't have the same work ethic I do and is on the phone, get off the production floor and play with your phone all you want. Don't screw up my chances of getting rehired next season.
