Or perhaps I should call this post a "postal" cautionary tale (yes, I know, bad pun). Back at the end of March I mailed a small package to my husband's aunt. We share the same name (first and last - she never married) so it does look like we're writing to ourselves but usually our letters and packages fly back and forth through the mail without any difficulty and in record time (she lives about a 2 hour drive from us). But that was not the case with this recent package. It took them about a week and a half to deliver it to her. The day after I mailed it, they tried to deliver it to me! It even showed as "out for delivery" before someone caught and redirected it. Then it wandered around the bay area looking for it's new home for over a week. I'm just glad it wasn't anything urgent and finally made it to its intended recipient but from now on I'll be writing "TO" and "FROM" on my packages to her in big, bold letters to make sure the postal employees can figure it out. I might even cut address labels apart to create more distance between my return address and the addressee's! An important lesson to remember if you don't want your mail wandering about for days on end. ;-)

I'm not sure where to put this blog or how to classify it. This blogger is a daughter of a friend and while I'm pretty sure she's a Christian, it isn't a Christian blog, or books & reading or letter writing & mail art. It's basically about their travels so I'm putting it here for now: Jen's blog: 3toGo
