Got my Bell, great as usual.

One thing that I have noticed that is missing from the Brass Bell, a little brass bell to end each story. ;)

No, I did not get mine. And no, I am not expecting to get it. My last one came from Jim Staib, not the post office.

Tyson - send an e-mail to Al at admin@chriscraft.org and confirm mailing details. You are the only failed delivery that I am aware of. We'll send another and try to find out what is going on. It must be an anomaly with your address, somewhere.

Your best bet for help is to post this request in the Electrical Section.
