I reordered the FRIENDS Lego kit. This represents three days of my life:

1070 pieces, some of them REALLY small.

"What happened to Lego?"

BTW, this was the first Lego modeling I've attempted. None of the previous kits called out to me as this one did.

And, hey, do any of you know if it's possible to obtain "ordinary people" Lego figures on their own? I'm thinking I'd like to add a few extra customers, but all I can find online is superheroes and astronauts!

I've got a sandwich bag full of them, JB. I'd be happy to pick out some normal humans and send them your way if you'd like.

Much appreciated, Ryan. Maybe three of the least "Village People" you have?

Thanks again.

You got it, I'll put them in the mail tomorrow.  I think I still have your address somewhere.

I found the box you used to ship Guardian to me, good to go.  Soccer moms, not bikers or pirates. And I have plenty of the newer 'flesh' toned heads and hands to send, instead of yellow, so they match.

I've had to get past Jim's tape work a time or three before, so I'll take that as a compliment! 

And that arrived FAST!  Good thing it didn't have votes inside.

Speed in Mailing. . .

Pretty sure I've told this story before. When I was living in Calgary I was mailing in my pages to Marvel, usually thru the main Post Office downtown, not far from my apartment. It would take about 10 or 12 (nerve racking!) days for the packages to reach NYC.

Then one day I discovered a tiny post office tucked away on one floor of the Hudson's Bay, a big department store about as far from my apartment as the PO. As a test I mailed a package from there. Reached NYC in four days!
