    [​IMG]So WDW is closing at 5 today in preparation for Hurricane Matthew. It's a bittersweet relief that we were not able to make it down for vacation. For those in the area or pathway, please take all precautions and stay safe.

    Classes were cancelled here in response to Hurricane Matthew. I hope all our DPF members are safe and sound!

    What is going on with the U.S. postal service :)
    I ordered a pin from someone in North Carolina .
    So far said pin has visited :

    1. Asheville , NC
    2. Greenville , SC
    3. Columbia , SC
    4. Miami , FL
    5. West Palm Beach , CA
    6. Louisville , KT
    7. Philadelphia , PA
    8. Nottingham , UK (Thought it was getting close then)
    9. Philadelphia , PA again !!!!
    10. London , UK
    11 . Cologne , Germany

    This pin has crossed the Atlantic three times and has now spent more time in the air than I have in my entire life :lol:

    I can imagine it didn't really leave the US yet, rather they scanned it leaving for the destination and was marked arrived before it got rescanned. Tracking US mail is hit or miss, I can imagine the hassle for international deliveries.

    ​Any chance you can get the air miles your pin supposedly travelled en route to you? :lol:

    I hope that everyone has had a comforting Dia de los Muertos cherishing memories of those whom have passed on. In other news, it seems the Cubs won the world series...

    How's DPF been since I've been gone? Work seems to finally be winding down due to the New Year so hopefully I'll get more time for pin trading now that I'm not working 100+ hours. Thinking of New Years Resolutions, one of them is devoting more time to family and friends. I have one friend that has swore from all social media due to how negative and toxic it seems to have become, but I think this forum is the exact opposite from that and hope to be more active here if not on facebook/twitter.

    Disappointing news, I was let go from my primary employment today. As of now I am currently in the process of transferring what was my secondary's part-time status to full time and will be in the process of cutting back on expenses and eventually selling pins. I can only pray something good will arise from, if only in self development and growth...

    I'm sorry, I hope something positive can come from something negative.

    Shameless plug here: I'm considering bringing back the murder games and have started a thread to check interest.

    Have we reached April 1st already ?
    I just looked on eBay and there's a single hidden mickey pin (Looks decidedly like a scrapper too) up for sale priced at $12,000 !!!!!!! , because it's 4 of 5 :lol:
    If that's how much they're going for its time to sell my collection and buy my own tropical island :D

    So follow up, I did get full-time status at my job, so my first full check will be here next week though I miss getting paid weekly). We also got our refund check in today(blows a sigh of relief). Looks like I get to hold off on pin selling at the moment though I need to go through my collection...

    So I splurged on the limited edition of Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5 for PS4 the pin, it was only available on the square-enix site. Now I wonder if I should sell my sealed LE copy of 2.5 for the ps3...
