Skint's Books Just Arrived!

Remember those books Skint mailed to me on August 10? They arrived just a few minutes ago. The exterior of the package was horribly mutilated but Skint did an excellent job of packing them so the books arrived in pristine condition. Thanks Skint!

My earlier post about the Canadian postal service was quite prophetic, wasn't it? Actually, I think my books travelled farther afield than originally planned because I can't identify some of the language rubber-stamped onto the remains of Skint's package. There's a plastic overwrap that's exclusively French-language, but there's also a stamp "antananarivo-tri.., etc." I wonder where it was? All very exotic.

so sorry Susan :) I didn't realise you were still waiting

at least you got a funny post out of it

Thanks for being the first person in the world to order the books even if you're not the first to receive them

Well, the Canadian Mounties always get their man; I am glad to see that the Canadian Postal service (share your experience of it, Susan) always if belatedly deliver their mail!

Erudite characters in your comments, Susan -- Madagascan experts, whatever next?
