    I sure hope I had the correct address for our recipient! I'm chomping at the bit to find out when they receive it!!! I want to also tell the story of how this came about, and I can't do that until the cat's out of the bag.

  • Jason just pm'd me to let me know that Cate contacted him CONCERNED that she just received a new Ten Super Deluxe Box Set in the mail without any information. He told her the story. So now I can share how this came about.

    Jason E started a thread a while back asking if anyone had an extra Ed Notebook from the Deluxe Box they'd be willing to part with. I inquired with him about who it was for and so forth, and he told me it was for Cate. She would love to have the notebook but wasn't able to afford the box set. Well, Cate has done so much for me (and I found out, others as well), without buying this for herself, there was only one thing we could do: HOLY GRAIL. I suggested it to Jason, and he actually had the same idea. And then all of you generously donated your money and time and energy and positivity to this. I can't thank you all enough. And Jason for starting this. And again, pjtradeking for allowing me not to have to go the ebay route!

    Jason tells me she is thrilled and humbled and said something like "you fuckers!". HAHA. Love you too, Cate!!! Enjoy!!!

    im sitting here speechless atm. for those of you who know me personally youll know what an accomplishment that is. i am truly humbled by all of you alls generosity. you made me cry you fuckers. :P :lol:


    so this morning i go down the PO to get something. i am expecting some CDs, but recently theyve been coming into my mailbox, so i couldnt figure out what was awaiting me at the PO. but whatever it was required my signature.. and that intrigued me more. the woman behind the counter(no she wasnt elderly) dumped this big 'thing' on the counter and i thought WTF!! thats the size of a 12". i dont understand. so i lug this package home, all the while thinking what it could be and who sent it to me and who the hell is scott??? :lol: i seriously did think it was the size of the TEN boxset but dismissed that as being just too ridiculous for words. who would send that to me??? it cost way too much, though i did have my suspicions about if it was the TENset who would be behind it. ;) i got it home and opened it and was literally floored. i said to my daughter that i didnt understand and she said maybe it was sent to me by mistake. and i said well who would make such a mistake???

    i fondled it for a bit, and yes reverentially went through the notebook, then fired off an email to the person i thought would be most responsible. what i got back was a vague email asking was there a note? i said no there was no note and asked again if he was behind it. by this stage i was quite anxious and frustrated cause, as i told jasonE, never in my life has someone taken such a initiative with me, so that was freaking me out a little. then came the confession. i was sitting at the bus stop reading jasons explanation and became so overwhelmed by such generosity that i started crying.... and then wouldnt you know it... the bus came. :lol:

    i just want to thank everyone for such a grand gesture... especially paul, jason and scott... this means more to me than i could ever possibly express with words.

    thank you thank you thank you thank you
    hear my name
    take a good look
    this could be the day
    hold my hand
    lie beside me
    i just need to say
