This from the DC detail:

  • 8/30/2007 1:00 PM - Electronic Shipping Info Received - LUSBY,MD
  • 9/1/2007 10:12 AM - Acceptance - KINGSHILL,VI

So, this book coming from MD to TX, has to go by way of the Virgin Islands!?

Maybe it will send you a "Wish you were here" postcard!

That would be the ultimate, my pirated book sending me a "having a wonderful time, wish you were here" from the Virgin Islands! While I sit in the rainy Texas Hill Country!!

It probably just ended up going the wrong way. The zipcode may have been misread or a VI zipcode had the same numbers but in a different order... believe me...anything can happen with the PO! I know... I work there!

Maybe it felt like a little holiday before it settled into it's new home?

After all, moving house is one of the most stressful things in life.
