I received a phone call today from a very dear friend of mine in the Vancouver area. She wanted to let me know she had finally received the birthday card I mailed to her on Oct. 9 (here on Bundock Avenue) and she received it today, Oct. 29.
My father was born in 1885. Seems as if our mail system has gone back to the ways of 1885 or so. This is unacceptable and I do hope our new government can wake up and correct the mail system. My cutoff date for my bank statement is 25th of the month. I used to receive my statement before the end of current month. Now I get it the following month on 7th or 8th day.
My friend’s birthday was Oct. 18. I wonder, should I mail my Christmas cards now?
