Either suspenders means something totally different in North America, or my mental image of you has totally changed ::P:

I think they are called bracers in Great Britain. They are straps that attach to your pants & go over your shoulders to keep up your pants.
They are red if you are a Fireman.

Ah, the great Atlantic divide strikes again. I'd post a photo of what I understand suspenders to be, but it would probably get modded!

Before I forget again... Got shipping notification for my Infinity N4 rulebook on Monday. Looking forward to having a physical copy of it - that and the fluff book that comes with it!

How about lost acquisitions?  I had an order from Michigan toy soldier for some of the 3d prime from badger and a few other things just disappear in the USPS.  I got the tracking number it showed shipped and then it disappeared.  the tracking number now says its no longer valid.  I never saw that before, I guess someone in the postoffice wanted my primer more than I did :) 

 

the company is sending out what they can again but some of the items in the shipment were closeouts....  So much work for such a little order

Got an 11Kg package today... 

 

Nope, not an early BonesV or very late BonesIV...

 

It was a toolcase with an 1100W portable metal bandsaw. 

Popularly called a 'Portaband'.

 

I got an AC model because it's lighter and stronger(and cheaper) than a battery-powered model. 

 

No pictures because SirForscale is on vacation.
