23 Year Slow Mail Delivery

On this Friday morning, we are reading about a Thank you card in New Zealand taking 23 Year Slow Mail Delivery; the story is from this past summer.   

The article said the recipient lives 12 minutes away!

Wouldn’t it be fun

to know where this letter had been

during this time!

“New Zealand Post said the stamps on the letter show it has been through the postal network twice.”

Here is a link to the story:  That really is snail mail – card arrives 23 years after it was sent.   Enjoy!

The article had some speculation and theories of where the letter had been.

It was able to state “… There are two cancellations on the envelope, one from 1993 and one from the Te Puni mail centre [in Petone] in 2010,” a spokeswoman said. …”

Join me tomorrow for my Saturday blog post. Here’s to hoping none of our letters run into a rare 23 Year Slow Mail Delivery! 

Anchors Aweigh,  

Helen
