Hello Peter,
The pleasure is all mine. I do hope that you like them. Is there a display at the station house of world wide patches? We used to have one but many were pilfered so I brought them home instead. It's a shame that people cannot leave other's belongings alone. Have a great day!!!

Hi Peter!!

A Montreal FD patch is on it's way to you my friend! I have also added an EMS patch from Quebec. I hope you like them. Take care and please be safe!!!

I figure it must be the second one because as you say, it was wrapped in double envelope and a plastic protective cover as well. I shall be hoping to meet the postal worker who nabbed the first one.....
I am so appreciative of your efforts Peter. I can send you patches from Canada if you like. I anticipate seeing the picture as well. You are a very kind man Peter! Again, I cannot thank you enough for the shirt and for keeping your eyes peeled for patches. Anything you need here........just ask! Stay safe my friend. Until the next time.....

Your Canadian friend,

Hello Peter!!!!!

Great news my friend....the T-shirt you sent me has arrived safe and sound!!!!!!!!!!!! I am over the top with joy Peter!!!!! This is a beautiful T-shirt, I don't want to wear it for fear of getting it soiled! I am very appreciative of your efforts and kindness. I told the postman that if he ever saw another postal worker wearing a shirt like this, I would appreciate his coordinates so I could pay a visit and compare notes........he laughed and said he would keep an eye out for it. Perhaps I will nab the culprit after all???
In any case, I am so happy to have this shirt Peter! I am extremely proud to say that I am from Irish roots and now I shall display those roots on my body!!!
If there is anything I can do for you from this end Peter, just say the word and it shall be done my friend! Please stay safe at work and at play!!!

Your Canadian friend,

I'll probably be watching the games in an Irish bar called Slainte downtown which is oddly enough owned by a Russian guy/

Not a big Denver fan but I do like that song a lot kinda reminds me of growing up too...andl you can still watch the cup just cheer on whomever is playing France!

Good morning Peter,

I am glad to know that it finally arrived, I have hope that I can report the same soon!
Yes, French is the official language of Quebec, No, I am English, as a matter of fact, I have very strong Irish roots. I do not know if Europe and North America differ in shirt sizes but I imagine it is possible. The water-proof patch is a new thing that came out this year. I believe that the style was copied from Spain. Be well my friend and as soon as the shirt arrives, I will contact you!!!

Stay safe,

Oh no, I would certainly insist that he remove it first!!! Hopefully we shall both see a package soon. Be safe my friend...

Good day Peter!
No, nothing yet here either......I am quite surprised at the length of time it takes for a parcel to arrive on either side of the pond!!! What is going on with our technology?? I will have an eye on the post! If I see a postman wearing anything remotely similar....there will be bloodshed!! Be safe my friend..
