Happy Valentine's Day
« on: March 28, 2024, 04:44:58 PM »
Hi everyone.
Yesterday, my wife received a Valentine's Day card. From me. Mailed Feb 5, 2024. Mailed to our house via a post office 1/2 mile away. Then sent to a major sorting facility about 10 miles away. The 20 mile round trip letter took 7 weeks and two days to get here. Go USPS.
So, there is a little hope that any of you to whom I've sent a letter in the last several months might actually some day receive it.

Gosh!  That is just crazy.  I did receive your exchange letter, and Iím pretty sure it was before Valentines Day.  It took four months for me to receive an envelope from Africa a few years back, but when I emailed the sender that I had received it, she said that was pretty good timing for her neck of the woods!  That is a lot more understandable than what just happened to you.  It is sort of taking the fun out of sending nice envelopes.

Oh my. That is atrocious. Did you tell your postmaster? Maybe write him a letter and copy your congressman. I doubt it will do any good but might make you feel better. I hate to say this but I think we are running on borrowed time for the post office to keep functioning.  :-[
