Sticker lovers...I joined PIPSTICKS the sticker club. You pay between 10 and 15 a month for a package of stickers and more..Now, I have a 50% off your first month if anyone is interested in joining, you would only pay 5 bucks for the first month and you can cancel after that if you dont think its worth it but I am hooked.

These sticklers are high quality, never before seen, unique, you also get postcards and a ticket each month where they may choose your number and you can win camera and other prizes. Sooooo if you have 5 bucks and want to try one month of Pipsticks, let me know and Ill send you the special postcard to enter the code in for your 50% off. I got the first package today and I am GOO GOO GA GA

PIPSTICKS

Commercial over lol.

Ooooh!!!! The sticker train arrived here in Rochester Hills today! It was a great surprise for a quiet Saturday morning! I haven't gotten a chance to peek at the contents of the envelope yet, but the train will be heading to Sara before long!

for all who might wonder about us who have made it thru Hurricane Harvey; all is good now that Harvey is moving eastward. 

We got this notice at 6PM tonight for our local area and all the areas that Harvey came thru because Houston is the only sorting station for mail for the entire SE Texas area so it could be up to a week or more before mail is restored for delivery as well as us mailing anything out of our area of TX. If anyone is mailing books or other items to any city in the SE TX area please know ALL of our postal services will be delayed.   

***********************************

The United States Postal Service is suspending mail service for all zip codes that Hurricane Harvey has effected until further notice.

In a press release, the Postal Service assured customers that their mail is secured and safe. They said as water recedes in the impacted areas and conditions improve, both mail delivery and retail services will be restored.  All Priority Mail Express service to the Houston area is suspended until Wednesday, August 30th at 5:00 p.m.

I'm sure books mailed to our area will be delayed for 10+ days or more as will any books that I have going out will be held till Houston opens again. PBS doesn't recognize when areas are hit so I hope this info if passed around the boards will help with some understanding of postal delays after Hurricane Harvey.
