Darn the postal service.
For once, the USPS isn’t entirely to blame. I’ve experienced equally poor service from the Royal Mail.
Once, while standing in a long, slow Post Office queue, I heard a lady say, “the Queen would be ashamed.” The English, at the least the over 60s, really believe the Queen runs the mail. In fact, an effort underway to curb pensioner fraud had to address the misperception that anything that comes through “the Queen’s mail” is trustworthy.
We know better. As you can see, some of the postcards I sent were lost in the mail and have only recently surfaced. There are more out there, but at least the postcards from Brussels, Hvar, Vieques, Casablanca, Bath, Paris and Cambridge finally showed up.
More postcards to come, if the Queen ever bothers to deliver to them.
