|01:45 pm - Oh, and speaking of family...|
Thanks for reminding me that I wanted to tell asenathwaite99 that we got the "Save the Date" card yesterday. Just in case fraggle42 has the genetic control-freak tendencies that 'cause hoppie to mail himself a card whenever he does mass mailings to get an idea when they arrive.
I'm not like that. When I mail something, I cast it to the winds and consider my part accomplished. What happens after it hits the post office is someone else's problem. I think I picked up this attitude from the black hole that was my university's post office. You could mail something there, and it would leave between one and four days later, but still be correctly postmarked. Great for floating bill payments, not that I ever needed that.
Current Mood: tired

Ah the postal service...you, who are 3,000+ miles away, have received yours. I, who am barely 100+ miles away, have seen nothing...
This may be due to the super-enhanced Bermuda Triangle effect of the post office, the mistaken assumption that a request as to how to address such card indicated I should expect to receive one or the vagaries of having the boys bring the mail in and corresponding likelihood that I could have missed it...
Somehow, I don't think Fraggle has the control issues...while we seem to have certain control-freak traits, I've never known the postal system to be part of them...
It is odd. Maybe the postal service figures the Mass people need more time to prep, so they put a rush on those, but the California people, eh, no big deal. They're right around the corner. It can wait.
But your statement validates my theory that this odd tendancy may have come from Hoppie's mom.
My mother left before she could insist that we send you one...but tomorrow I'll be mailing a few more to cousins whose addresses I've just received, so I can send you one then.
Hooray! Now that they've reached the east coast, I really need to scan a new picture for our WeddingChannel and Knot pages.
