Mail Wonders

The postal system around the world never ceases to amaze me.

I sent for a QSL card to a ham in Colombia (satellite QSO). Today I received 
his QSL card. The interesting thing is that I sent it with an IRC. Stapled to 
the outside of my self-addressed envelope is the IRC. There is no stamp on the 
envelope and the IRC was never used. I get a bonus, I get to use the IRC again. 
Everywhere the envelope went, they had to flip it up to see the address. 

I guess this makes up for the ones that got away.
