Some time ago I pointed out that the Post Office was delivering packages that the UPS usually delivered.
I indicated that the Postal Service and UPS, since they used the same planes to fly packages about, had agreed to deliver packages for one another. I was not sure then, and am not convinced now, that this was a good idea.
However, stamps have seen their first price reduction in 100 years.
The elephants are part of 17 being moved from drought-stricken Swaziland to zoos in Wichita, Omaha and Dallas. The elephants will arrive sometime Friday.
Sedgwick County Zoo workers won’t say exactly when the elephants will arrive but, they will eventually be housed in a new elephant exhibit.
The Wichita Zoo has been in the thorough building a new elephant area for several yearsand has recently seen the demise of its elephants. Renewal is at hand.
I have made a determination to purchase the Braun 9 series sonic razor. It arrives Friday, via UPS.
As do the elephants for the zoo.Elephants have been in the courts lately, having won their right to immigrate to the US.
That took government intervention and participation. The Postal Service is a quasi-governmental business, working with UPS and airplanes.
When my package arrives this afternoon, I hope it is small and carryable, and not an elephant SNAFU by the government.
I really cannot afford to feed an elephant.
Nor shave with one.
