Now that I have your attention. See how a title can just suck you in..
We had our Gold Rush Days this past weekend and I was able to secure almost everything I needed to complete the giveaway. Almost. I was unable to get any maps. Turns out the rights to the map belong to the National Archive and are not allowing willy nilly reproductions. :P
You know that mass mailing thingy I did 2 months ago, that thing you probably though was never going to happen. Oh yea sure, he mails this stuff out and asks for me to send in my box tops and my ovaltine lids in a self addressed stamped envelope along with 25 cents. What do I get BUPKUS that's what. I waited outside my mailbox for the last 2 months and I got SQUAT. I'm calling my post master and filing a fraud complaint.
Hold on there sparky!! I told you I was moving. I had to allow time for everyone to have a chance to send something in. They may have been away, attacked by a plague of locust, ran out of gas, they didn't have enough money for cab fair, the tux didn't come back from the cleaners, a old friend came in from out of town. someone stole their car, there was an earthquake, a terrible flood, you know the usual stuff.
Anyway.. Here we go.. And this one time at band camp..
Oh yea, the WINNER(S). I had quite a few responses (surprised). This one actually made you send me something. Not as easy as just "please reply to this post". For those of you that made the effort, BRAVO.
