A few of you might recall a February blog post involving Banana Mail. If you have no idea to what I am referring, you can read the post here: https://trashbubblesandlifeslittlebits.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/on-my-desk-go-bananas/
One of the featured pieces I’d prepared to send to a mail art cohort in France was a paper mache banana.
It took a while to actually get this one moving through the post. In my over-zealousness, I neglected to fill out the proper customs form and was turned away.
The Banana-gram and I pouted a bit, filled out the form and returned to the local post office where a cool postal worker, Jim (Thanks, Jim!) made sure that the Banana-gram would safely make the trip without further ado! (What a guy, that Jim!)
It wasn’t long before the Banana-gram had arrived in Paris! Alas, it had a short wait while the sender was notified and could make the trip to retrieve it….
The following blog post will fill in the details of the story, even going so far as to provide some great photographs of the Banana-gram in its new environment!
See, Jim? I told you it would arrive in one piece!
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
