Upon returning home from our trip abroad I find I have a ton of things to do. I would say that might be a gross exaggeration, but it’s not too far off the mark. So what did I do today? I edited photos from our trip and uploaded them to the internet. I am continuing along the theme of “unnecessary at the moment” by posting this right now. Most of the photos from the camera are from our drive around the perimeter of the country and there are a lot (a lot) of sheep pictures….but the sheep made me really, really happy.
I think this looks like a George and Rhonda. What do you think?
I was very concerned how these rural folks got their mail as I couldn’t seem to find any mailboxes, or figure out if they would have rural delivery? A PO box? How far did they have to drive? You know I’m a mail nerd, so these things are kind of a big deal if I’m going to move into one of the amazing picturesque farms right at the base of a fabou waterfall…..This was the only rural mailbox we saw.
You can find some more of the photos offloaded from the camera in the Flickr set here.
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!
Total mileage flown to date: 3403
I’m super excited to get my pigeon, Henrietta, ready for her maiden mail voyage. You can get your own from the Letter Writers Alliance and drop it in a mailbox near you. I’m hoping to surprise a lot of my stateside pals with Henrietta’s visit (sorry international folks – the bird isn’t big enough for a customs form) and am excited to report back on her travels! But who will get her first??
I recently got back from a somewhat lengthy (for me) trip back to the homeland and was so excited to see all of this great mail waiting for me! I can’t wait to hunker down and start replying!
This is definitely my idea of a fabulous morning. A cup of coffee, some light music in the background and awesome letters to respond to. I love it. Both my mailbox and I are all the better for it.
