My favorite NJ box ever is Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

I agree. We did that about 3am while driving up from GA to MA. I highly recommend doing it then for the extra creepy factor!

The guesses really fell off with the last clue. I'm sorry these clues have been so challenging. It amazes me how creative and resourceful y'all can get. Don't quit now no matter how hopeless it seems. Follow me to the end of the clue thread.

The cancellation marks won’t matter so long as they aren’t on the stamps.

👍 That’s hilarious!!!

That sound like a Dr. Seuss title

The Seal with an Eel Up It's Nose

I'm sorry to say
I'm sad to report
That I found a seal
In a terrible sort

The seals they do probe
They are looking for food
The eels try to escape
Ending up the seal's snood

The seals go back to the beach
Go up on the land
And begin to wheeze
Up on the sand

The problem you see,
Had by these seals
Are these things up their nose
These thing are small eels

Then the humans do see
That seal and his wheeze
They do want to help
The seal they will please

After a look, a real close exam
The eel was removed
by the Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program

This latest nose eel was also removed,
With a “slow, steady pull.”
The seal was unharmed;
But at least the eel was all whole

The seal was released
Back out on the beach
But if you're an eel
No noses! We beseech




Footnote: "Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program" just doesn't work in the meter of Seuss, but I did what I could.

Also, use a dry erase marker and scribble on the cancellation marks. Then use the dry eraser and they come right off.

Didja hear the one about the seal with the eel stuck up it's nose?

I posted a new swap...it's going to be a series of swaps. I really enjoyed the art study swaps that we did because I learned how to use my products in a different way. I also was amazed at how others created their cards in the restricted art movement. The cards were so interesting and unusual...different ideas than what I had. It was great!

I don't think this series will be as difficult as our previous but you can get as creative and difficult as you want. You can watch youtube videos, search blogs, or just play!!

Let me know if you have questions...or comments??

I agree with most of that -- except setting Ryan up as arbiter. Leans too far toward Groundspeak for my tastes.

Thank you so much for making me aware of this show! I don’t really keep track of new shows on Netflix, and I would have missed it. I’ve only watched a few episodes, but I am quite enjoying it!
How to change box type on listing

I just made a postcard for a ring exchange. I set it up as an “Other” type box but now I can’t add it to the tracker. I should have made it an LTC. I was about to delete it when I realized that I’d lose my AQ number which is already written on the cards. Is it too late to change it to an LTC, and if not, how do I do that?

My Letterboxers Egg Hunt Event is coming up, are there any animation-related stamps in that haul?

Actually, I could probably use the whole haul. Sending my details in private message.
