I sent all but one, which was good because she isn't green-lighted.  I hope everyone likes them!

Post office is closed for the public holiday.  Angry

Will send tomorrow or Sunday, depending on when it reopens (I find Chinese handwriting very difficult to decypher)

I think it's impressive you've even got an idea of what it says!

I told schnerby this via pm, but I still think it's funny, so I'll share here. I sent 4 packages via Priority Mail here in the US, and then the one to her in China. I was amazed that her package was the cheapest to send!

Ditto that. the Priority Mail and even the one Parcel Post that I sent was individually more than the one Air Parcel package that I sent to Foxlet in Finland! Go figure. It will be interesting to see if she gets the package sooner than her US counterparts.  Huh Seems that a lot has changed (= gone up) in the US Post Office world. I guess I haven't been sending out packages lately. Today all the postage goes up again. We snuck in our packages on the last day before rates went up.  Tongue

The new rates start May 11th. Priority and Express mail rates aren't changing now because they changed January.

It's a mad, mad world.  Grin
My postage seems totally arbitary. Let's see, what do I feel like charging today...

God, postage charges. I swear there's some astrology voodoo witchcraft behind determining those. A package to the US might cost 25 euros one day, and another, equivalent one is 5 a week after that. Tongue

Hey Dragonmama, are you going to note on the front page when someone has received what you sent? Just curious.
