 This is NOT a vent at anyone else. It is a self reminder and maybe a thought for others.

 I got a book I believe was in new condition when it was mailed. It was wrapped with huge paper that was lovingly drawn on by a child. Great use of it, love it!

However it is raining here... April showers... man. My sorry self forgot to put another plastic bag in my mail box. Most mail people will put mail in a plastic bag if you have one in your mail box because it is not rain proof, I know as our mail man when we moved here asked us to make sure we do just that. I didn't replace the last one!


 Now hopefully I do not forget again!

Rain is a problem here too. A few weeks ago, I placed a note (inside a ziploc bag) on my mailbox that reads "please place all packages between doors." They've been very good about doing just that. The mail carrier forgot to do it only once. There was a rainstorm that day.

This is why I have an RC for plastic around books- we get heavy rains pretty much daily here in south FL during the summer.
