Duh. Figured it out. I forget how helpful the forum search function can be.

If not a suicide moose, then a tactical moose. Because tactical stuff is cool. As long as it's not tacticool.






It is known that Mainers use larger mooses for their package delivery system. They don't worry so much about noise discipline on their mass destruction ordinance delivery missions. Maybe like a "Spruce Goose Moose" sort of thing.

Here at the Manor, we prefer the smaller, quieter and swifter stealth moose.

Roger that. Perhaps the spruce goose moose might be able to learn some stealth moves from the well-manored moose.

If we need stealthy delivery, we use a bigfoot



Anyway, I've been slacking, I guess I'll get my Secret Santa package to a south bound moose. The next one that comes along.

Grumpie got her Santa bomb today. Good thing I was outside so I was able to escape the worst of the blast. Whew! Santa had a letter in the box that had a poem which contained a clue on the ID of her Santa. Lazy dogs. And Santa appears to be a fellow Hoosier. So I'm pretty sure I know who it is. But in keeping with the secrecy theme, I won't say anything.

Anyway, I went inside and found a very happy Grumpie. Her Santa sent her some very tasty smokes:

Diamond Crown
Tat Havana
La Sirena
Room 101 Daruma
Room 101 Johnny Tobacconaut
Tat Tattoo
LP UF-13
My Father
Herrera Esteli
Montecristo Espada
Camacho PE 1962
DPG Centurian
Ave Maria Reconquista coffin box

Well, Mr Santa from IN, you put a big smile on Grumpie's face! Lots of new ones there along with some of her old friends. Well done!

She is wondering though why you haven't been to a herf here yet. We need to change that. Keep an eye out on the MMM thread or for a Moose Manor Herf thread.

Thank you!

love,

Grumpie and boiler

Well, Santa put his nut cracker to use and squished my sack good. Ima need a big ice pack to bring the swelling down...

MF Le Bijou- great smoke.
Tat Jackal- Fantastic smoke and I am getting low on these.
DC Maximus- great smoke
Cuvee Grand Lancero- nh
RP HR 500- nh
AB Fine & Rare OR 2011- nh
DE FSG- smoked one before and liked it.
DE Velvet Rat- Are these related to the Velvet Fog? Was gifted one previously and really liked it.
CAO Consigliere- Good smoke.
Cupido Crillo x2- One each Campana & Churchill- nh Been wanting to try since Jespear turned me on to the Tuxedos, but the Criollo never seem to be in stock.
PC La Historia- Good smoke.
Iconic Recluse OTG- nh Heard good things about these.
MF FdLA- One of my favorites.
RyJ Anniversario- nh
AF DC Trumpet- LOVE these.
RP OWR- nh
Curivari Seleccion Privada- nh, been wanting to try.
Camacho 1962- good smoke


I might add, most of these look to have some decent age on them. I look forward to trying the NHs and ashing them all! Ok, I may throw caution to the wind before enjoying them- since they all came packed in zip lock Biohazard bags. Which is kind of ironic, since at Halloween I pass out candy to the kiddies from a big red Biohazard bag.

Will try to get a picture up, if I can figure out the technology to make that happen. fog


Thank you Santa, you made my Christmas!!!

Nevertheless. The generosity is very much appreciated and I wish my secret Santa the merriest of Christmas' and the happiest of New Years' no matter who he roots for.

I will post damages and a picture either late night or tomorrow, have a busy day planned today before the subfreezing temps kick in tomorrow. Thank you whomever my Santa is that was over the top generous and I am grateful for everything.

Well my SS that I sent to won't have any problems identifying me. In my haste to get all the cigars I owed out the door, I labeled them all the same way.

Not that the contents wouldn't have given me away but duh rookie mistake on my part.

Thanks Stinger........yea I'd have figured it out.My wife's side is all AF but they're tight bastids and would have never given me an AF flask(sweet addition to my collection),an E3 shot glass(another addition to a collection,a Lite Colonel Challange coin(man you hit the nail on the head with stuff I collect,of course til today none of it was AF),a Yeti 18oz rambler,a five stick travel humi,a jar of Ol Smoky Apple Pie Shine and a dozen or so fine sticks which at this time are in a frozen stage for safety reasons.I'll get a pic up by the weekend if all goes well.

Thanks David

I had fun putting it together. As I said, even without the stupid return address, it would have been easy to figure out if you pay attention to the forum at all.

Enjoy.

Good idea on freezing. Some of those are recent purchases from a store in Albuquerque. All the others have been in my humidor for awhile and should be well aged and raring to go.

Go Air Force!!!

Nothing to do with you.......I have a large closet humidor(6'X8'X3') that's pretty full and it would be a nightmare if I hatched beetles,so as a precautionary measure I freeze everything.


Again Thanks.......I suppose I'll have to be nice to you Chair Force guys for a while.

My bride had to go out earlier today. She came running back in, yelling at me. I wondered what I had done. She was mad cuz now we need to repair the porch and there was reindeer poop everywhere!

I would have guessed my Santa from the note, he's the only one who calls me bubblehead, but the real clue was he put his name and address on the box!

Thanks, Ron. All of 'em are new to me.

Box of 10 Man o War Puro Authentico
5er of Man 0 War Side Project
5er of Ramon Bueso Genesis
Pair of Camacho Shellback LE
2 Cupido Tuxedo samplers


Again, thanks not-so-Secret Santa

Dear Santa, your generosity has done more than just give the gift of giving. It has brought out the Christmas spirit within the mailman. As he was leaving I'm pretty sure he said I was his #1 customer, in not so many words though, more of a hand gesture. Another package arrived today along with another clue as to who this Secret Santa is. Inside I found a bottle of "Hometown Brewed" Whiskey Acres Bourbon. I will enjoy this, thank you.

Santa must have flown through the neighborhood while I was working. His sleigh was so overloaded that it knocked the chimney off the house and the sleigh runners left tracks across the roof.
A Bakers Dozen of cigars, local Christmas Ale (Fistmas) an ale glass, golf balls and MATCHES. Lots of NH in the box
Only clue is Santa is from Chicago area.
Will post a picture for Monday.

Thank you Santa. Super job.
