CowboyUp!!! - 2010-11-29 8:15 PM I am in...send me info...or do I send it to your husband? Can it go FedEx? I get a discount from Fedex due to my job... 

 
Yes you can send it however you like :) as long as they will ship there.. I know my aunt tried to ship something through ups the other day and they said they dont ship there!! Idk how all that works I always use USPS because its close and we use the 12.50 large flat rate box!

**Large flat rate priority is the only box they do for 12.50**
They do not discount any of the smaller boxes

edited becuase I cant read obviusly lol

My barn girls went shopping for our 2 marines today... and of course they spent all the money I sent with them plus some of their own... funny how I never get any change back..

Both boxes are identical on goodies...
They went peanut crazy... bought 2 lb jar of each...  planters peanuts and  cashews... and pkgs of hanes socks.. 10 prs to a bundle..
and a bunch of other candies and stuff..

I could sure eat some cashews and one of those huge hershey bars and play with a hot wheels Christmas corvette I saw in the boxes..


I will get these two boxes mailed Monday since post offices are closed on Saturday around here...

We have really enjoyed doing this... been a lot of fun..

HOPE OUR MARINES KNOW HOW MUCH WE VALUE THEM!!!  EVEN THO I AM EX-NAVY....


Memories....>>>
I can remember doing Navy basic training in San Diego.. Marines and Navy are separated by a chain link fence....

Marines would come by double timing wringing wet with sweat while we would be  sitting under some shade trees and they would sing dirty songs to us as they hustled by and out of sight......

Bless their little pea picking hearts.. it was all in fun and we looked forward to listening to their next dirty song about the Navy...

That is just great!! Thank you so much! I get on to my husband all the time for making fun of the new marines but he says its just a miitary thing that they will do it to the new marines too once they go up in rank...I just give him the look and he knows to hush while hes with me lol I give him the "if you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all" speech and he shuts up because he hates my speeches

 No photo, but that box would never get repacked if they opened it to inspect it at almost 11 lbs.  Shipped it out today.
