Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.


You've Got a Package!

By on January 28, 2014

I love getting mail especially packages. I do a lot of online shopping, it is amazing what you can get online, it is amazing what you can get from, but I’ll save that for a different blog article. FedEx is one of the more popular shipping companies not just in the US but globally, so it was interesting to stumble across an article which talks about some of the crazy shipments of animals and artifacts that the folks at FedEx have had to handle. 

Psst! Do you see the arrow between the E and the X on the Fedex logo.
