Crud, I cannot believe I missed the last one.  Iíve been amiss in the community (and missing it) but always enjoyed the exchanges.  So many wonderful themes, ideas and unique treasures in the mail.  Thank you, Erica.

The week for mail from America

Mike - I am in your debt. Thank you so very much for the nibs. They arrived yesterday. They will be going into my posh pens for sure.
Not that I can do much, but if there is ever anything you wish for from this side of the pond, please don't hesitate to ask.

Also,....

Today, I received the Valentines exchange card. The card will be going straight into my writing box. Thank you so much.

Laughter is definitely the best medicine, but Wolves destroying WBA runs laughter close, and the Yankees winning the World Series is ................ laughter is the best medicine, remember?

Well, @Mark T , the card I sent you for the Valentine's Day exchange has set a new record for slow delivery. It was mailed on January 23, 2024, so 17 weeks to get to you.
The nibs went out on April 17, taking a mere 4 weeks, 5 days.
It used to take about a week to get something to the UK, but since the USPS has been modernizing it delivery system here in Atlanta, it's a miracle anything ever gets delivered. USPS is pausing its "improvement" processes as of this month, delaying them until 2025, so we may see some improvement soon. Apologies for the great delays.

(As an aside, if there are any others missing exchange letters from me, I guess there is still hope)

Write on.
