The Easter parcel reached SSgt G in time and he said he enjoyed sharing it with his team (no mention, however, about whether he tried on the bunny ears)
Late parcel went out to my Airforce double-adoptee (So nice I asked to adopt him for a second deployment). Luckily he's been zipping about the countryside (note... not sure *which* country or which side) and wasn't back for his mail for a few weeks so the lateness wasn't a factor - whew!
Postcards have been winging their way across to a Wounded Warrior based in Texas. I am hoping they make him smile just a bit.
Oh and I acquired a new adoptee via Soldiers Angels too - so far just an introductory letter, an Aussie postcard and a box of goodies (from the Soldiers' Angels store) have headed his way but I am working on his May Parcel as I type (more below)
May goodie parcels...
There is (as I type) a Water Balloon Launcher and 300 water balloons winging their way to SSgt G. Hopefully it will be a great team toy and fun in the Hot Hot Hot of where-ever he is.

I did attempt to send a WBL to Airforce Adoptee however for some reason (a weird twist in the time/space continuum?) Amazon's supplier will ship to one AE/APO address but not the other AE/APO address.. Never mind - it's the last parcel for him so I can easily substitute an Aussie Sweets and Munchies pack instead and I am sure he won't mind.
For my Newest adoptee I am trying to order some "Summer Sausage" for him (okay so first I had to ask my "Go To Guys" exactly what the heck that was since we call it something different Downunder). Hickory Farms have Military gift packs which is lovely - however I am once again having problems with "postcode does not exist for that area" error messages. I have emailed them and will hopefully hear from them shortly.
Oh and in a RAK [Random act of Kindness(?)] I have shipped some Timtams, Caromello Koalas and Musk Sticks off to a new friend in the USA. He advised that he's received them but nothing so far on taste tests (I am figuring 2 out of 3 will meet approval). And being a Sweet and Lovely Pax I did not send any Vegemite to befuddle him further - Go Me! :D
Also a reminder that the ANZAC pin & keychain competition ends on the 1st of May. There are FIVE entries so far but I'd love to see a few more (just remember to reply at that post to enter).
