Well, slim pickings for the post office today...just the two cards I wrote yesterday and my Monday letter to Amanda, the soldier I'm writing to (I've decided that Monday is "Write to Amanda Day"). But I also wrote a long letter to a penpal in England...that goes e-mail, because we're too cheap to pay postage when we don't have to!
I was excited to go to the post office to see what I was getting in the mail from Sharla, from sendsomething. It was 78 cents postage due, which indicated that it must be a heavy letter.
It was a postcard she'd made out of a campaign sign she had. Clever idea, but it wouldn't bend, so the clerk says that the post office considers it a package, not a postcard. Expensive mistake! But we've all learned something, right?
The afternoon brought an interesting letter from a penpal in The Netherlands.
Now I'm going to be leaving for 2 days tomorrow morning. I will write something while I'm gone, but I won't have internet access, so I won't post entries or pictures until I get home on Wednesday, though I will probably post something tomorrow morning before I leave, since I already have started on tomorrow's mail!
