Christmas brought one unexpected package. Our great friends Liz and Brett sent us a Care package. It included a picture of an Echidna, Steve’s favorite logo for his biking team; a tea towel designed by some challenged children for whom Liz advocates, a calendar with pictures of the countryside, a needlecase for me and a bookmark. Nothing was large or weighed very much. Indeed the entire package weight about 3 grams. The shock was that it cost $17.00 to mail it. Wow.
I loved the postal envelope it came in and had to share it with you. The Aussies don’t waste a lot of time on political correctness. The just call things what they are.
Tough Bag!!!! I loved it. But examine the other hoops Liz had to jump through to get this to us.
And she had to swear it was legal and harmless material.
Finally, she had to (Yikes) pay the postage.
But this package brought a great deal of joy to two honorary Australians.
