Letter: There was nothing sweet about this Valentine’s tale

March 1, 2013

No wonder the U.S. Postal Service is in trouble.

I mailed Valentine’s cards to my great nephews in Indiana the week before Valentine’s Day. The week after Valentine’s Day, I received one back for postage due; they both had the same identical card. I added postage to make it $1.47 and remailed it along with a card to the boys’ mother on the same day. She received hers, but still no sign of either of the boys’ cards.

Then this week, I received the one I remailed back and it was torn to pieces. The other card has not surfaced anywhere. Both had gift certificates in them, and they both had return addresses on them.

I guess they have gone to the big mailbox in the sky.
