Tags:rl, thank you

I'm home and sitting on my corner of the couch, surrounded by your gifts. They were well traveled, having gone from your place to ours down to Indiana and then back to here. I also discovered why delivery took so long -- which is that it probably didn't. The post person put the box between our front and screen doors and Jebra didn't notice since he's normally looking for the mail well past dark. If he hadn't been up there during daylight hours, well, I suppose the box would still be there.

Anyway, I love everything you've sent -- the photo of you and J is wonderful, the card itself is very pretty, and the socks are adorable. The mini pedicure kit is both cute and very welcome as my poor heels are so rough it's not funny. But the penguin playing cards! Adorable!!

Thank you so much!

ETA: OMG, how'd I forget to thank you for the sugared pecans!? (Well, they're out in the kitchen but it isn't like that wasn't the first thing I thought of when the box appeared in our hotel room!)

Aww! You're very welcome. And I was thinking dire things about the PO for taking so long!

So was I, once you'd revealed when J took it to the post office! I know the postal people responsible for our neighborhood are not the most accurate people on the planet. I routinely receive mail for the people two houses down the block from me. I wonder if the reverse is true, but I took a dislike to them when we moved in and the intervening years have not changed my opinion and thus we are not on speaking terms. These are the folks that have a real railroad crossing mechanism in their yard -- one that is attached to a motion sensor. For the first year they had it went unaltered (i.e., obnoxiously loud). To the point where my late next-door-neighbor threatened to take a shotgun to it.
