What I think is my secret Santa gift was just dropped off on my doorstep by an unmarked car, unwrapped but with my name on a sticker on it.

The gift is awesome, but the delivery method was the clincher.

GOAT @GOAT welcome to the forums! It’s awesome that you just joined and are already jumping in head-first!

I see you are from Philly. I used to be there every week for work. Spent a lot of time in Center City and the Navy Yard.

My gift had been delivered. Judging by the proof of delivery photo, maybe I should have sent cash instead of a gift.

Nice to meet you! How long were you in Philly? I spent many of days in Center City, especially when I was attending Drexel. Glad to be part of the boards. Everyone so far here seems real chill and cool to chat with.

Thanks Santa for the wine, the tumbler, the honey and... the "extras"!


I hope you enjoy it all. Everything there is made within a few kms of my place, it’s a lil sample of the Okanagans finest. Honey is from my friends apiary, wine made down the road, weed grown in my garden and is 100% organic! Tumbler is as close its I could get to Jets burgundy 🤷‍♂️

Thanks a lot for posting a picture of my house on here.
I was already concerned about stalking based on the biographical nature of the gifts (which were awesome by the way).
Merry Christmas!View attachment 52757
I figured you might enjoy a little blast from the past with the Albany Med and Saratoga items. Also, your podium picture was too badass not to memorialize. Our family does the Peppermint Pig tradition each year on Christmas night and hope it brings your family health and fortune in the year to come.

I hope you enjoy everything! Merry Christmas friend! God bless!

It’s ”The Peppermint Pig.” The box comes with a little metal hammer, a bag, and some delicious peppermint in the shape of a pig. You put the pig in the bag, everyone takes a turn bashing it with the hammer, then everyone eats a piece of the peppermint to bring you health and luck in the year to come. It’s fun for all ages and something we have been doing for almost 20 years now.

that is so awesome. I just ordered a Clarence.

i have a 2' Sparkle Glitter Ski Pig decoration. It's the only ornament I've ever paid full price, and the only one that's out year round. I just don't turn on the lights until after Black Friday.

Awesome. How often do you get back this way?
Haven’t traveled much since COVID. I’ll probably be back there once a quarter when things get more back to normal
