I assumed that it was a mistake this morning when I got a text from USPS that a package from Colorado was out for delivery today on Memorial Day but I just picked this up sitting on the front porch ...
Came with a 2020 Estes catalog too!

Steve,

So... you had a Doorknob on your doorstep. (HUGE grin)

Before I looked it up, I thought the NEW! Estes Doorknob was basically the following shape:

That's pretty funny Jay! The wife wasn't so amused. I tried to sneak it in off the porch and she said "I hope that isn't another rocket ... don't you have enough rockets?"

My extra decal shipped today from Estes so I should have that in a few days too. At least that will fit inside the mailbox so I won't get busted ordering more rocket stuff ...

To which I would respond: "Don't you have enough shoes?"

Yes, I'm divorced now.

I’m going to write that one down and save it for the next rocket box on the porch!

I’m looking forward to you getting into this build on your blog. Is there a way I can get auto notifications when you update your blog? I am not a member of Blogger.com and I was checking to see if they had an iOS app. Any suggestions or maybe an email list I can get on? Thanks.

I got an 18k Rolex Datejust watch for my wife back in 2010.
It was the best TRADE I have ever made.

Yes, I'm divorced too but have been with the same girlfriend for 9 years and have known her for 32 years.

The blog is updated every day with a new post or two.
I don't know how to set up auto notifications. You don't have to be a member of
Blogger.com to visit the site.

When I finish up the Vector V builds, the Estes Doorknob will start on Friday, May 29.

My Doorknob kits should be here today! "The Vixen" is just as excited as I am because she may get to paint something on them.

As for shoes: "The Vixen" has enough shoes to make Imelda Marcos say, "I'm not worthy!" (drop the mic)
