Winter Weather Blues!

So I have only been at this blog for around a week now and I already missed a day of posting. My apologies to my readers. I have been feeling under the weather, so much so..that I havent had time to work on any mailings of any kind. I didn't even venture to the mailbox for the second day in a row. I am sure the MailLady will be wondering where I am. ( I am usually very prompt about removing my mail from the box before the next delivery).

That said..I did find some time to order a book I have been dying to read.

The Englishman who Posted Himself and Other Curious Objects by John Tingley. It is about an Englishman who..well...posted himself and other curious things! Hah. He basically took a copy of the Postal Handbook and then tested to see what items he would be able to send while remaining inside the postal guidelines. I think it will be an interesting read and I am sure I will post a full review once it is read. Then I will most likely donate the book to my local we didnt have a copy in the State of Ohio systems that I checked.

Here is a link to the book for more information about it. Perhaps it will spark your interest. What types of books do you like to read?


  1. Thanks for reminding me that I wanted to buy this book. Or maybe I should wait and see what you think about it. I read a review of it several months ago and it looked very interesting. Be sure to report back!

  2. I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who wanted to read this book! Truthfully I had written the title down a few months back and randomly stumbled upon it while cleaning out my desk!! My library didnt have it, so I had to order it. I will definitely be sure to post a review of the book once its read.
