My sister just called me laughing hysterically! There had been a red ball in her front yard for days now with some neighborhood kids periodically playing with it. she kept thinking, why don’t those kids come get their ball out of my yard?
Well, today she decided to go out and get it only to find out that it was for her! All of the stamps were in disarray and it was definitely used but she still loved it!
One thing that we do know is that it probably did not arrive in a bag or something from the postal carrier–I think they just left it on the porch. That would explain why it got out into the yard!
My sister absolutely loves the ball and asked me where I got it from. I’m sure that she will be sending some along to others too! I have sent them to family members all year for birthday gifts.
Wanted to let you know that the ball made it safe and sound to Guam! It seems that the reason it took so long to get there was because it was sent to Palau by accident. My mother said that you could tell that the mail people were having a blast playing with the ball as it got processess and shipped around the worlds – there were faded marks on the ink where it had been bounced around and some people acutually wrote little happy birthday wishes from Palau and California!
