Fun Stuff from the Post Office

Posted: August 19, 2010 in Post Cards, Snail Mail

I was able to check my PO Box today at the post office (got there with exactly 4 minutes to spare, when they say they close at 5, they mean 5 on the DOT!) 

Upon opening the box, I was a bit miffed that crammed in the box was junk mail (that I specifically talked about not getting but who knows, could have been someone new) and amongst the junk were four shiney post cards! 

Post Cards from Postcrossings!

Well, three were shiney – one was in an envelope with a canned apology about the damage (looks like it got dropped in water and the ink ran a bit – but the post card DID say that it was raining and they were expecting a tropical storm.. so…) but the card was legible and in pretty good shape.  The larger post card from China had a few dings in it.  The are from (from top left going clockwise) Spain, USA, Bermuda (the one with the water smudges) and China. 

Now I need to figure out a way to store these lovely treasures because I know when my mom and dad come to visit, they’ll like to look them over.  They like looking at the envelopes for the mail art and the stamps – especially the stamps. 

I hope you had a good mail day as well!
