Unhappy calendars

I noticed not one you has been inquiring about calenders. I have been e-mailing and sent a private message to Melissa Miller about my order of 4 calenders. I have not gotten any response. I am starting to wonder that the calenders are not going to be sent. I sent a check on Dec 24, 2008 to Melissa's home address to order 4 calenders. No one will answer my inquiries. I have had some kind people out there answer but they are not involved with the making of or selling of the calenders. Thank you all who have answered my threads. but you could'nt tell me what I needed to know. Did my check get to Melissa house and did she place an order to send me 4 calenders, if not let me know so I can reorder. I keep sending this same message out there but know one wants to answer me with the facts of my order. I truly would like to own one of these calenders, I think the photos are wonderful an the lay out of the calender terrific. Why cant I get the truth or even an I dont know response from the makers of this terrific fund raiser for the Rescue Havanese?

Obviously, none of us can answer your questions if Melissa got your check. Only she can do that. If she can't answer your questions, I'm very sorry, but there is nothing we can do about that. As Ryan said, she did mail out the calendars only a couple of days ago, but it is highly unlikely that you would have known that because it wasn't posted here.

And, just for clarity's sake, I don't believe the calendars are a fundraiser for HRI this year.

I am finding this total lack of communication from Melissa very baffling. And, at this point, really annoying. And unprofessional and plain inconsiderate. If there has been a death or tragedy or illness or problem that has caused this delay, even then, a brief explanation could be put forth, eg. along the lines of. . . ."due to circumstances beyond my control, etc." and we would , of course, all understand. But no, complete silence.

I, too, ordered 4 calendars, & via Paypal, so they are paid for. Before Xmas! I cannot imagine what is preventing Melissa from posting a two sentence message to us all as to the status of the mailing. I frankly don't know how she runs a business that way, since photography always has time value.

Unless she's in an intensive care unit somewhere, I cannot think of an excuse . Sorry. I find it inexcusable.
And most of you don't want to offend her and speak up, because, yes, we ARE all very grateful for this forum. That will always be true. But this is a separate situation, and the length of the delay and the silence are ridiculous .

It seems like a few of you have an inside track~~like Ryan, Kimberly, how do you know this? But the rest of us are totally in the dark. Jeez, all this mystery and silence and secrecy, I am tired of it. I don't even care about getting the calendars anymore. They were gifts , and of course, the recipients already have calendars by now.

Eventually, some sad scenario may be revealed, and I'll be made to feel like a terrible person for saying the above, but you know what, I won't, because I , of course, wasn't in on this mysterious secret that only a select few are privy to. I need another frusty!!

and HEATH-Y, TOO !

Please be patient!!
My understanding that the calendars were mailed on Thursday afternoon of this past week, so we all should hopefully be getting them all soon.
Melissa, has a LOT On her plate right now, not just the forum. I believe she is in Alaska right now, making her living as a photographer, and I think it is hard for her to post or even get internet.
One of the reasons that she extended last years calendar to Feb. was because she knew in her heart how hard it would be to get it out before Xmas, but I know she was hoping!!
I understand all of your frustrations, and no one is "running away with your money" as I promise you the proceeds will be going to HRI as well as the costs to run the forum - as previously discussed. You all know that I have been a member for over 2 years, please trust that there is nothing sinister going on, and you WILL get your calendars, and the proceeds will get to HRI -

Thanks for the update, Laurie, I appreciate it. But, sorry, nothing you have said excuses the complete lack of information. It's childish beyond belief. "Full plate" "working in Alaska" ~~give me a break.

And, again, some of you know, and the rest of us don't. I'm getting even more annoyed. Why doesn't Melissa just appoint ONE of you who "knows" as spokesperson? Instead of these random dribs and drabs of info. Ridiculous. It's like the 7th grade or something.

and HEATH-Y, TOO !

I haven't wanted to say anything up to now but I too am baffled and astounded that there was no word other than weeks and weeks ago when there was a quick statement about the calendars going out the next week. The problem lies less in the time frame, other than the fact that people should not have paid in December for a delivery in February or been told at that time is was not likely to go out for quite awhile, but in the lack of communication.

I too am more than grateful for this place and all that it has brought into my life and I know, many of yours. But this is a separate matter. I know Melissa said anyone could get their money back if they didn't want to wait but that's not an option I would have chosen to exercise. It just would have been nice to hear something. Amy I understand your frustration.
