HAPPY READING! : )



NOTE: Had hoped to post this ON your Birthday when I received, quickly registered, and then mailed the book when it finally arrived in the 11th hour (I'd been looking for it for the past few YEARS already), but for some reason, I've had quite a bit of difficulty logging into BC, and just finally succeeded tonight. When entered into the field, the ISBN does not bring up the correct book. The Information below is from Amazon, although that is not where I finally located this First Edition Gem that I had to wait several weeks to arrive once I found it.😊

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

👉United States Postal Service (USPS) Tracking # CH133532866US...the USPS Clerk told me that it would take 6 to 10 days for this Parcel sent via International Priority Mail to reach its destination...

👀WOW...I've been tracking this parcel Postmarked on 8 May that I was told would take 6 to 10 days to reach its recipient. It didn't even depart Moscow until 17 May, and just toDAY (Monday, 24 May), after a week of the USPS website saying it was on the way to it's destination only an 8 hour drive from Moscow, it has just finally received Customs Clearance. Sure hope it gets there soon. Because this slow moving book arrived in the 11th hour as it did, there was no time for me to visit with it when it arrived, and I even decided to forgo using any beautiful Birthday wrap and ribbons that I normally use for a celebratory gift, opting instead for what I thought was a creative minimalistic "wrap and weave" in a way that it might speed through customs because they would be able to clearly see through it and not need to unwrap anything fancy that I might use before rushing to the Post Office in order to have it Postmarked ON your BIRTHday!!! As it was, I took tape and scissors, and mailing labels I had pre-typed if they wanted those in addition to the Customs Form I had completed to take along with the book I had placed with your card in a not yet sealed postal envelope, in order to make certain it was the correct envelope to use, because they keep changing things and aren't even using the same Customs Forms anymore...WHAT an adVENture!!!😊
