What a hectic month it has been at work, sorry for the delay in updating.  We are finally catching up on our mail and we both received another envelope!  Geocachers are truly the best people!!

 

Thanks Shadowdragn1 for the great coin, we are excited to add it to our collection!

 

And thanks Hughie250 & Hintz1st for the subscription to FTF Magazine.  We always picked up any copies we have found in caches and have thought of subscribing!  Have two back issues on our coffee table right now.

Sorry, Rainbow Caching is me! I just buy postage under the business account for ease ?

That's great! We opened both packages today and had a blast. Thanks so much to our Easter bunnies, Pesh and Sappimage.thumb.jpg.0c895284641cfd34e8dd395ba8ccaed1.jpghire_45, and Laval K-9! Lots of goodies and shiny things!!! Time to get out and find those caches!

I totally noticed yours when I was doing the Geocache Talk "live coverage" of the Texas Counties Finishers Event. Thanks for all the Kansas and sweet treats too.

         I'd better NOT get a gift ?

 

I received a message from Laval K-9 that the Easter Bunny had egg trouble (it appears he/she dropped one and had no replacements), so I suited up and got Off to the Rescue !

 

Who is this for? To quote Centauri in The Last Starfighter, "I'm not gon-na tell you!"

Received my mission: April 24.  I am complete!

Wow what a great surprise.  I was wondering what this package might be as I had not ordered anything.  What an amazing gesture for a HAPPY Easter!

thanks so much to Jim RKY and Bethie Biker  I can sure use everything in the package.  What a nice thing(s) to do. I will always remember this mission!

You are more than welcome! We're pleased that you are happy and that your Mission will now be a good memory. For us, I like to remember this quote from a classic movie:

 

"Every time a bell rings, a Rescue Missioneer gets his wings..."  ?

That Bunny needs to eat some carrots for energy to finish up his deliveries!!!:drama::mmraspberry::omnomnom:

This isn't  an experience about this Mission, but to show how things are going with the usps.

Prices going up, service going waaay down. NOT amused at all!!!

 

There was a  Secret Santa for my fb Hedgehog group and I had sent a gift from Florida to Scotland (yeah, I know) on DECEMBER 10, 2020.

It was $39.USD. The package came back to me yesterday (April 29, 2021) as they had neglected to put a customs sticker on it somewhere in the process. Maybe someone should have figured it out in less than four and a half months??? Only good thing, it wasn't destroyed.

And, I had sent the same person another package with a custom made item at the beginning of January and it got there in a week.

I have had the same experience. The few shipments I have had undeliverable have taken up to a month - to come back from within the US

I know, from the news, a proximate cause - and I agree with you that I don't like this at all. And there is NO alternative that is cost effective in most cases. I remember when, for a penny, I could get a First Class letter across town in one day. Now our mail has to go from Hopkinsville to Nashville - before coming back - and costs 55 cents -5400% more than it once did - and now they won't even guarantee Priority Mail to be to the delivering Post Office (not in the recipient's hands) in 3 days for over $8 per letter (which is nearly an 80,000% increase).

 

But, as my wife lovingly likes to point out - I'm an old man and so should be quiet ?

I have a very Happy post to make! Yesterday, Bethie_Biker brought in the mail - yep, she actually walked that far! And, she said, 'I have an envelope here, for us both, that seems too heavy.' On opening said envelope, a modest, unassuming craft envelope of card stock, I found the most wonderful surprise! mopirate had sent us one of their Signature Geocoins!

 

Thank you so much, mopirate, for being so thoughtful. You Did Not Need To! Seeing you happy was enough reward for us!

Perhaps is the Easter Bunny on the mainland right now. And how about asking the Easter Hare to take it over from now on? :bad:
