Shipping

I'll try to post when I can, but can't guarantee when. I'll do my best.

Anyway, I'd like to thank my reader SMOD for sending me this. He was trying to ship a package to a friend and was using the U.S. Postal Service website to figure out the cost. It had some, uh, surprising questions.

Central Kentucky member of the tribe here. Very glad you are doing well, and update when you can--we will be waiting. Hope everyone else is holding up too.

First, glad to see a sign of life.

Second, yes, the US Postal service ships almost anything. I had baby chicks shipped to me for a jr. High science project.

And before anyone asks, the chicks grew up to be lovely hens (no roosters) that were household pets until they died.

The USPS just rolled out a new shipping program for cremations last fall. Special shipping packaging and 4 color glossy telling you all about the new program. They even followed up with a phone call to make sure we got our information. I kinda doubt if your office was on their target market list.

One could get a real well-rounded education from studying how to mail something with the USPS.

Beekeepers get packages of 3-5 pounds of live bees through the mail. I wonder if those count as live animals or hazardous materials?

Glad to see you're back and (hopefully) doing okay!

But where do I click to find out about mailing cremated day old poultry?

Which explains why there's such a thriving black market for fake IDs for poultry.

Every week the company my husband works for receives a shipment of black widow spiders they use to make the antivenom. :-)

Now I feel like a weirdo. I have had every one of those things shipped to me. MIL's remains, baby chicks, a baby tortoise and butane.

I'm a mail carrier...believe me, it's most interesting at our small office when the bees arrive, and half of them are on the OUTSIDE of the container. Since I raised bees at one time years ago, I always got the job of dealing with that...
