I'd read about this, but it had not happened to me.  S

ure enough, the Dec. 6 postmark (just as she said) was clear as day, and the book . . . arrived today!

Just sharing as this may not be news to "you," but it had not happened to me!

(I promptly gave good feedback for the excellently wrapped package . . . )

I've never had it happen to my package, but I have had a box that took a 'vacation' on its way to me. I thought she just forgot to mail it and was about to PM her, until I got a PM asking whether I'd received them two weeks into the wait. It wasn't even during a holiday season! I don't know whether the wait made me more excited or not to get them, but I was happy to see them.

Stacy, I once mailed a box to myself from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania, and I purchased delivery confirmation.  I was very surprised when the tracking information reported that the box had made it's way to California, and I ended up beating the box home.

My mom mailed me a card one time and she told me the day she mailed it. We live in the same state but it took almost 3wks to get here! lol The postmark was what she had told me. It was weird, lol.
