The Packs and the Pool

Hi All,

We just got back from a quick trip to Oklahoma to visit with Kathy's folks. On arrival we had a message from SC saying they had finally gotten their pack. It apparently arrived over the weekend. Did anyone else get the pack over the weekend?

Just curious; how were they sent? FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.?

And, so, anyone interested in setting up a pool about this matching stuff? The Doogmeister used to be the Commish of the local sports pools in SC. Would he be an obvious choice? I think HLA typing involves looking at 6 different antigens on the cells for a match. A person can match none the antigens, all or anything in between. This is ripe for some kind of pool to see who is the closest match. Say $5 to enter, with half going to the winner and half to the sib who matches (as sort of a consolation prize?).
