Neither snow nor rain...

...nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the SWIFT completion of their appointed rounds.

I received a package today.  It was an eBay purchase.  It was fabric.  It is very pretty. 

The weird thing is...I hadn't purchased anything on eBay since...well since people did things like purchase things on eBay.  When was that?  2007? 

Why yes.  That is exactly when I purchased that fabric on eBay.  2007.  I'm glad it wasn't a new kidney or something vital like tickets to High School Musical II. 

Three years and, nine months to get from Yakima, Washington to Maine...via outerspace perhaps? 

Snail mail indeed.

Smiles from the farm,


  1. Just under 4 years, that's crazy! It must have fallen between the seats of the mail truck along with my check for a million dollars from Publishers Clearing House.

  2. HOLY cow.

    Well, I just started buying stuff from eBay this summer..... I bought almost all my Christmas gifts from eBay or Etsy. And today I bought a camera bag on eBay.

    I hope it doesn't take 4 years to get here, though. :)

  3. Oy. The Little UnDead could've flown it there faster than that. I'm not ordering any Peanuts from eBay, I can tell you!
