Mine went postal to my SSS. I won't post the DC for a few days; you can plug the numbers into the tracker at USPS.com, and find out where it's going by it's stops. Yes, it's like shaking the box to guess what it is under the tree, but some things just can't be helped!

I'll check with your Secret Sister and have the DC posted. I informed it was mailed last weekend. You were good this year, Tracy (I think) LOL
