You have to read this story. A postcard was returned to a Florida address. The card was originally postmarked in 1956!
DELAND, Fla. — Talk about lost in the mail.
A postcard sent from a Stetson home to a man in Riverside, Calif., was returned this week with a "return to sender" stamp — and its 1956 postmark.
Mack McCormick, 59, did not send the postcard, but he lives in the home where the postcard originated. It was delivered to his mailbox Monday.
"The card apparently has been in the twilight zone for 50 years," McCormick said. "It's not wrinkled or anything."
It is unlikely the postcard spent the last 50 years in a DeLand post office, said Joseph Breckenridge, U.S. Postal Service spokesman for Central and North Florida. The local post office has not been in the same location that long, and maintenance workers would have found it if it was trapped in a sorting machine, Breckenridge said.
The card may have been sent to California and was rediscovered recently by someone who dropped it back in the mail, Breckenridge said.
Doesn't this make you feel your money is well spent when dishing out almost $40 for 100 stamps? Maybe that long lost postcard to Robert J Ruhe will get forwarded back to me. I only mailed it in 1974.
