Today I purchased a container of large cinnamon buns that looked soooo good! The checker put the package sideways instead of flat in my cloth shopping bag. Of course, it was one of the last ones I opened when we were home putting things away. The container had leaked out gooey sticky stuff all over the bottom of the bag. I washed it and put it by the propane heater to dry when only the fan was blowing and the fire was out. I forgot about it until I smelled something burning - well melting not actually burning. Yikes! What a mess then! Apparently it had sucked up to the front and stuck. Guess we'll have to wait until June when we have the heater serviced and see if the technician can get the stuff off.
We split one for lunch and they sure were tasty!
Now I must tell you about a special card that was hand-delivered! My brother-in-law and I have exchanged birthday cards for many years. He bought one, mailed it and two days later it was returned to him for postage due; $3.00 postage due!
It seems that it is a surcharge for non-bendable cards according to his postmaster.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How are “rigid” letter-size greeting cards priced?
Greeting cards can be classified as “rigid” if it cannot bend and is less than:
- 11-1/2" x 6-1/8" x 1/4" thick
- 3.5 ounces
If they meet these conditions, they will be charged the standard postage rate, plus a non-machinable surcharge.
Did you know that? The card was great and I really appreciate his efforts to get it to me!
This card actually measured 81/4" x 53/4" I don't know what it weighed.
When I pressed on the spot, "press here" it played "Feels Good" as the dog scratches his neck and his ear swings when bumped by his paw. Funny!
Well, I wagged my tail very hard today!
