It's been a month since my last bitch. Still no Brass Bell. I guess someone shot the Pony Express rider.

I contacted Bill and he said the replacement issues had been mailed back on 2/14. I have yet to see them.
Boats are to be made of wood, otherwise, God would have grown fiberglass trees.

Sorry, gentlemen, i have the same problem. Apparently in some cases the wrapper came apart. all i got was the mailing label. Let Bill know and he promises to send out replacement issues. In the meanwhile, you can read them electronically by going to Buzz category "Odds and Ends", go down the list a ways to "Brass Bells." There is an entry by Don Ayers that has a link to the electronic copies. You need to be logged in to read them. They are great issues. This includes the spring and summer of 2011 issues. Fall '11 is still in the works.

All Brass Bells have been mailed. Sorry for the delay, but this ended up being a cumulative problem. They all mailed First Class. Each of you should have them within a few days.

Pete, all issues are in the mail. We had about 27 cases of bags not holding up in the mail. The requests came in via Boat Buzz, private messaging, Facebook, email, text, mail and phone.

I had to compile all of these requests into just a couple trips to the post office, otherwise I would have been packaging and visiting the post office daily. Sorry for the delay. You will have yours within a day or two.
