I'm a bit late, (had quadruple heart bypass surgery 1 part of Oct) but we're on.
Most of you know the drill. Sign up here, send me a pm with your name and FULL Mailing ADDRESS. A PM!!I do not do email, facebook, instagram, twitter or any other social media!!!! I will pull names out of a hat and give you another person to anonymously send a gift to. Someone else, will be receiving your mailing address and name via PM and they will be sending you a gift--anonymously. Then all you have to do is wait and see what comes in the mail/UPS/fed-ex. Make it $25.00 plus or minus shipping, your call.
Historically, we have always PM'd real names and of course, real addresses. This is so you have something to write in the "send to" area for the Post office or shipping agency to use. All I can do is promise that your information will go only to the one person that is going to be YOUR secret Santa. If you are uncomfortable submitting your name and valid address, please do not sign up.
And, please if you are interested, make sure you can do this. Extra Secret Santas' have picked up the slack in the past few years, but it is not fair for them to have to follow thru on what someone else promised to do. So please if you aren't going to send something, don't sign up. It isn't fair for the other person, and it makes the person left out feel really bad to boot. Cutoff date for signing up will be Nov 28, and I will send everyone their info before Dec1.
It's about all I can do Fiero related any more. Got to where I couldn't get in or out of one and sure couldn't bend over in that eng compartment to work on them anymore. such is life--this too will pass.
If the shipper or post office you use will allow that, then certainly do so!! (I usually just 'make up a name & address" for that return addy space if they get pushy--USPS is very understanding at this time of year--they've seen many thousands of Secret Santa packages mailed each year.)
Who is in charge of this? Santa Who set this up? Santa Who is sending the gifts? Santa Who is getting the gifts? Santa Who are you? Santa Who do we blame if our gift sucks? Santa Who do we thank when our gift is awesome? Santa Who converted their Fiero into a sleigh? Santa Who has their Fiero towed by reindeer? Santa

Who converted their Fiero into a sleigh? Santa Who has their Fiero towed by reindeer? Santa
When, what from the corner of my eye in my window did appear? A red Fiero being pulled by eight flaming reindeer. With a little old driver, who was obviously overweight, I think Santa could use a few Slim Fast shakes.
The entire story can be read here if you scroll down the page a bit and is titled "A PFF Christmas Story".
While making my list and checking it twice, I notice a couple of you did not include a zipcode. (Yeah--I know-any Santa worth a crap would already know all that info ) I'll pm those who left it off but everyone else looks good to go--or to receive!! A good participation so far and I hope the list grows. Thanks all!!
Last Calls for Secret Santa Claus. Sometime on evening of 27 Nov or early Nov 28, start checking your PMs to find out who your recipient will be. When I pm the name and addy to you, please reply back a "Got it!" to me as soon as you can to let me know you received the info, just as I responded to each of your "sign up for Secret Santa" PMs. As it stand right now, 18 people have signed up via PM and this thread combined..

Entries are now closed. Everyone has been sent a PM with the information they need. When you have mailed/shipped your gift out--please shoot me a PM so I can let the recipient know 'something cometh your way'. (around here, UPS and even USPS will leave packages out by the front gate instead of driving up to the house) Please, if something happens and you can't follow thru, let me know as soon as possible before Dec 25.
I am getting a few pm notices regarding gifts being shipped, so everyone keep your eyes open. IF YOU SIGNED UP, AND DID NOT RECEIVE A PM FROM ME TELLING ME WHO YOU WERE TO SEND A GIFT TO, PLEASE Let Me Know so I can resend the info to you.. A few have not yet acknowledged that you received the information (name and address)
