PostSubject: Guys-----You are CRAAAAAZY!!!   Guys-----You are CRAAAAAZY!!! I_icon_minitimeSat Feb 01, 2014 2:59 pm

Hey fellars,

how do I start...hmmmm

This morning I carried out the trash (99% diapers...LOL)...and noticed a huge package infront of my door! Made me angry because the delivery boy could have easily rang the doorbell instead of just dropping it infront of the door. Evil or Very Mad  I picked it up and saw it was from Kenneth. Oh boy...made me even more mad. Kenneth and I had a deal now running for more then half a year. I knew exactly what was in there: 7 very rare and tough to track down Poch variants.  Shocked  Shocked  Could have been stolen easily infront of a door....grrrrr.

So I went back into the apartement and already wondered: why is that package so big?? I mean it was huge....my whole baby Laura could have fitted in there  Razz Razz ....7 loose liitle 3 3/4 inch figures...hmmm...

I was excited....and unpacked it with my wife. Oh boy...two little presents for Laura (telling from the present paper) and a card...and my Poch figures in wrapping bubble foil (a guess of course) Very Happy:D:D

First I thought: Tse, tse, tse...Kenneth...of course you had to....I should have known it. Kenneth is generally just too nice for this world!! Whilst my wife opened the card and seeing all the names on that card she really (I swear to god) instantly started to cry tears of joy and emotion and beeing veeery moved!!!

I asked her: what is going on...and she showed me the card and said with trembled voice: "look...all those friends of you from your hobby have signed it...." and I starred at the card...just WOW Shocked 

I have to say that if you have a newborn you are generally very easy affected by emotions....but even minus the circumstances I have to say I was rarely that moved in my whole life!!!

Guys: Thank you very very very much! I am still trying to identify some of the names because there is sometimes "more" of you  Razz  and sometimes I am more familiar with the user names then the real names.....so please excuse me...I will try to ctach up as soon as possible!

I have to say: This all was carried out veeery clever...I did know shit! Kenneth asked me for my bank details to pay for a figure I bought for him...so no paypal....and I have a buisness account (freelancer) so I gave him (as usual) the bank details of my wife's account...just to avoid trouble with my "books"....

So be sure: The money is safe! My wife will surely look that it won't be spend on bootlegs and variants  Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz 

I havent even checked the account yet.......I really hope you haven't gifted your last trousers. lol!  And of course the "amount" is totally irrelevant for saying:

THANK YOU!

THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR DAY!

THANK YOU FOR THAT OVERWHELMING GESTURE!

THANK YOU FOR THE GIFTS....THEY WILL MAKE LAURA VERY HAPPY....I AM DAMN SURE!!

I say "Hi" from Karin too and she was also (as described) very overwhelmed!!!

Of course we LOVE the card you send us! Wer totally adore the little dress and cannot wait till it fits Laura Very Happy!
And I can already see her playing with the wooden "puzzle" toy soon!!!

Again: THANK YOU!!

I give a special thank to Kenneth because he seems to be the wirepuller of this all.....I also guess Mike_Skywalker (Mirco) helped to get some of the German guys on board...

KennethB..you are the BEST!! Very Happy

Glad to hear the parcel arrived safely after that small mishap with your postie.

I'm sure I speak for a lot of people but your guides, posts and pm's have helped a lot of us in the past so it's the least we could do.

...and to Kenneth, a huge round of applause for organising the whole thing (in secret haha!!)  :clap:

Just a thought, but was the parcel supposed to be signed for??? If it was, say it didn't arrive and make a claim against the postal service, that's what I'd do! May as well cash in!  Very Happy

Congrats Wolff. An amazing gesture from the TIG group.

Wolff, my friend!

The real mastermind behind this beautiful gesture was Kenneth, all the rest of us just followed him...

That being said, congratulations to Karin & you on the newborn, please give little Laura many kisses & hugs on behalf of your friends from Mexico City (my wife, 2 daughters and yours truly)!

Cheers!
