Auntie J has a gift for making the package immediately appealing. Instead of paying for a shipping stamp, she will usually use an assortment of nine or ten unique and wonderful stamps like these.
I mean really, who has an I Love Lucy stamp? It really made me smile. And it made me appreciate the effort it takes to send a real letter or package, because so few people know how to do it anymore. The art of tangible correspondence is a novelty it seems. She and Uncle Dan will take the time to package up something simple, like a calendar, and send it on its way to us all the way up in the boon tillies of Idaho.
And my boys have now been trained that when the doorbell rings unexpectedly, they will usually ask "Is it something for me!?" And sometimes, on a very good day, it is.
Thanks Auntie, we love you.
