Y'all amaze me! Eleven of 17 have already sent out their packages for May! Whoopie! May Birthday gals, as your packages start to arrive please begin a running list of who you have received from and post it to this thread. It is always interesting to find how long it takes for an envelope of birthday candy to travel from place to place.

I was so excited to know my first package arrived in just two day so the postal folk are really on the ball. Right? But then I realized it only had to travel about 50 miles. Silly me. Still glad to have it arrive quickly and I am thankful for regular postal delivery of our little packages. Three Cheers for Postal Workers and the service they provide us! Hip Hip Hooray!, Hip Hip Hooray!, Hip Hip Hooray!

Thanks for the list Macybaby! I worry about my little packages as they take so long sometimes to get where they need to go.

A big thank you to Jennr8r for letting me know I posted on the wrong board when I had sent out my packages. I stay subscribed to old threads for the ideas that pop up there and managed to post in our last 2.5 bday thread instead of this one. I fixed it fast and unsubscribed to the old list

My husband asked me to say Thank You! - -He went to our mailbox yesterday and took out the 7 packages and went "oh, her Birthday is coming up!" So now he has time to shop for me.

Thanks for the lists, gals and Irish, you make me laugh. I never considered that we were doing an act of community service by filling mail boxes with birthday envelopes. Next year we can be named the 2023 - 2.5 Birthday Swap and Birthday Reminder Group for Husbands. (BRGHs) Tee-Hee-Hee!!

Glad my card arrived, Irish. Hope my other ones get where they are going as fast.
Tell your hubby, he's welcome to the birthday wake up call!

Sending out my May Birthday Packages today. Looks like i'm late to the game. Weather has been beautiful here so long days working in gardens and enjoying it before it gets hot and humid.
