Henrietta has been a very busy bird. She recently returned home from a trip to the city of brotherly love: Philadelphia, PA! She reports that she had a great time seeing all the sights, and the Morris family were great hosts (Philly Cheese Seed sandwich anyone?).
She even attempted the famous “Rocky” stairs. But it looks like Matt had to help her to the top.
Henrietta tells me she already misses hanging out with the Morris crew…but has already flown out on her next adventure! I hear she’s traveling around a place that looks like a mitten…Hmmm!
To date Henrietta has flown approximately 28,907 miles!
Have you seen this bird?
Henrietta was last seen in the vicinity of Orchard Park, NY (though her time there has not been proven, only rumored). She ventured where no bird had gone before, with head held high (probably not a bravery thing – more about the plastic). Though this area has been known to be a vortex for outgoing mail, she took the risk in stride. It is with a heavy heart that I report she has yet to return home…and as the days go by, hope falters a bit. If you have any news of her whereabouts, her Alaskan family would love to hear from you. No questions asked, we just want our Henrietta home!
The holiday season is insane for me and it’s really hard to grab a spare second to do anything aside from have product ready and man by brick & mortar shopfront. But this morning I allowed myself to work on some of the mail that has been piling up the last few weeks and it was such a fabulous break! I’m ready to head back to the grind.
I even got Henrietta ready to head out into the world again with a few screws to make sure she doesn’t become an amputee.
There’s just something about a pile of mail that makes me smile!
Henrietta has finally returned to Alaska from NY and a few places in between. This was her craziest journey yet, heading to the small town of Springville NY only to be forwarded to Angola via a very weird system. Apparently she had to head out of NY to be forwarded back it to the correct address. We’ve asked what fun sites she saw, but again, the bird isn’t talking.
She went to visit my friend Bethanie and her super awesome Bicon Frise, Seftali. She oversaw the unpacking of a new apartment and took her job as Top Bird very seriously.
We heard Henrietta and Seftali became quick friends.
And just for giggles, Henrietta visited the meat department (just to see if she had gained any weight snacking on all those, well, snacks, as she travels). Because why not?
Where do you think Henrietta will turn up next?
Approximate miles flown thus far: 15,991
Henrietta has been flapping her little plastic wings once again and has flown from her previous destination (NJ), back to Alaska, and then made the journey south to visit my friend Minerva in Mesa, Arizona. She tacked on an additional 2,553 miles and the girl is looking good! I hear rumors she may be off to visit a rabbit soon…
Total mileage flown to date: 9363
Remember when I talked about sending Henrietta the awesome plastic carrier pigeon out into the world? Well, she arrived safely in Forked River, New Jersey after a harrowing 3403 miles and only 4 days (well, I have no idea how eventful the trip was and Henrietta isn’t saying much)! My friend Amanda was the lucky recipient and I succeeded in scaring her into thinking there was a dead bird in her mailbox. Ha!
The old girl is looking good and will be winging her way back to me soon to start another adventure!
