      Ok I finally got the photo I took of my gifts over to my computer and resized, so here it is!

      The cat toy and bird food block aren’t there since the former is coated in catnip and the later is in the bird’s cage.

        If it’s useful – yesterday I checked the websites for the post office and UPS.

        The post office website said “Alert: USPS is experiencing unprecedented package increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience and remain committed to delivering the holidays to you.”

        The UPS website said,
        “December 08, 2020
        Leading the industry in on-time performance
        Peak planning paved the way for a strong peak season. Thanks to improved customer collaboration and an optimized network, UPS is showcasing an industry-best on-time performance rate.”

        UPS generally is slower than Priority Mail, but maybe that isn’t true this holiday season. In my area they have hired local people to pick up packages at a nearby community college and do the “last mile” deliveries with their cars.

          Yeah, but the only problem is that UPS is generally a good bit more expensive to ship lighter packages than USPS in my experience – especially if my items can fit within a flat rate box.

            Yeah, a week later the loaf of pumpkin bread I sent out west Priority is still in transit. Hope it gets there before it starts growing. For what they charge anymore, maybe they should have a few hiring fairs.

                    Thank you WhiskerHunterWest! I love all of it and it was like a treasure hunt in the box, so much fun 😊

                    And then the card was the best, besides tigers, I love sharks and there is a horror movie it reminded me of, that is awful but funny, called Santa Shark. I love horror movies of all kinds, especially monster/creature horror.

                    And so many goodies I kept finding…the tiger face mask and tiger king art made me smile, the tiger stuffed animal is so soft, candle smells great, lovely conservation jewelry with sand from Ventura CA, some stickers, a beautiful scarf, some fun coloring books, and cat toys and treats! Which I immediately gave to my 2 cats and they love them. I’m also glad I gave it to them right away because I found the jewelry in one of the toys.
