To all in Micro Box 1

I for one am not impressed.

It would not take much to post a message to indicate where the package is - or why it hasn't progressed.

It is now 2 months since it was allegedly being on forwarded.

Cheers

I think that we should give this one up as a lost cause Keith. Maybe you should join the next Super Swap?

Hi Steve

The thrill, suspense and expectation and wonder has now gone.

Think I'll go read one of my new (but old) mineral books (Emeralds and other Beryls).

Cheers

Hi Steve

Well some time ago I had read "Tin at Tingha" (interesting) and the Minerama issue featuring Cassiterite (a bit boring) and
Tin Deposits of Durango Mexico (another interesting read), but I have only just acquired Sinkankas' Emeralds and other Beryls book and I am enjoying the read.

Box is still with Andy Givens I believe, he did acknowledge receipt:

"got the box yesterday afternoon...everything was packaged and labeled quite professinally....good job....keepin 4 probobly...neat stuff...will be sending it down the pipeline friday to rob"

sent him a follow up email but no response, ?????

Eddy,

do you want me to start this off again, it will take a week or so, work and health issues have put me behind with exchanges for about three weeks as it is. I do not want to see this die a painful death

Cheers

Jon

Hi all,

I am next on the list, and would be happy to start a new box of eight. I will be away this weekend, but will have no problem getting it out next week. I think the4 next on the list is Steve Sorrell. Eddy - it's up to you.

That means that you would miss out Bob...

I assume I would get something on the back end.

Hi all

I think that sounds ok - When the box eventually gets back to Eddy he can then forward to Robert so that he doesn't miss out

I have just now (9/29) mailed out a package of eight new micros to Steve Sorrell. Hopefully, Box Number 1 is back on track. It should be there in 5-10 business days.

I will be keeping 6 specimens out of box 1A. The box will be back in tomorrow's mail to Keith and should only take a day or two to get there.

I have the utmost admiration of people like Bob who have the time, skill and patience to present micros in the way these are presented.

The quality of the specimens is very good too.

Thanks Bob!

Regards, Steve

...oh, and I forgot to add, the box that arrived is one that I had sent to Bob sometime in the past!

Regards
Steve

PS: I think that you should find something to keep Keith!
