When I was a little girl, my uncle sent turtles to my sister and I from San Francisco. It was such a wonderful surprise. Their shells had been painted and were so beautiful.


Once when I went to visit a rural PO in Boring, yes Boring, Oregon, I could hear tiny little peep-peep noises coming from behind the counter. The clerk told me that they had received a box of baby chicks and that they'd been there TWO days already!! Some had died. If you mail order chicks, for the love of all things decent, go and pick them up right away!!

When we get chicks in the mail, the post office calls and says we are welcome to leave them there for the afternoon because they enjoy all the little peeps. When we receive honeybees in the mail, they ask us to come get them IMMEDIATELY!
