This week I received a great care package from David Pittman, a second-cousin (e.g. my dad’s cousin). It was a great surprise, for it contained some of the following goodies, all of which would be great to receive from anyone else at any time (hint, hint, nudge, nudge):
- Solar Powered Mosquito Repellant
- Lonely Planet travel guide for Brazil
- A few magazines about computers and gadgets
- A copy of the Wall Street Journal
- And several photographs of family and friends
So thanks David for all of the great goodies. They were all well received and appreciated.
Should you decide to send me a care package of your own, please consider the following. For starters, sending packages via USPS air mail is the fastest and cheapest method that I’ve discovered so far. Second, the US Embassy opens and searches all of my mail prior to giving it to me. This naturally increases the amount of time it takes for me to receive my mail. But when a package or mail does reach me, I’ve found that it is always worth the wait.
Thanks David. Hope all is well in Charlotte.
