I received a great postcard from Indonesia today, but it wasn’t addressed to me. Somehow, a postcard with an Austin, Texas address ended up in my Alabama mailbox - only off by about 650 miles! The postcard was in excellent condition with the Indonesian postmark barely visible.
I am the only active Postcrosser in my town and apparently the local USPS employees think that every postcard is intended for me! I’ve had four other postcards put in my mail box that were meant for other people in my town, but this is the first time I’ve received a misdirected Postcrossing card.
I’m sending this lost postcard to its rightful recipient tomorrow. I’m putting it in an envelope with a description of what happened.
