My Mom needs some help in trying to figure out how to send a birthday package to two of my friends in England.  Rex and Stan.  They are  my "across the pond" pen pals and their birthdays are both in August.  She has been working on packing them each a box to send and took it down to the post office last week only to be told it would cost $47.00 each to send.  I thought she was gonna have a scary attack right there in the middle of the floor and stop breathing.  Mom was shocked cos she had always mailed military package all over the place and it never broke the bank.  So now she is trying to figure out the best way to send these boxes...she doesn't want to give up and just send a card with money cos presents are so much fun!!  We thought maybe some of my blogging friends had the answer or have mailed things without using up their savings account.  Mom said it would take all our treat money for months to pay for the boxes.  Mom said the boxes only weighed 5lbs. each ....Thanks for your help!  Stella Rose


  1. Wow!!! I can't believe it would cost that much. What about UPS or FedEx? Not sure if it would be cheaper.

  2. That is expensive. Hope someone can come up with an idea. Have a happy Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. OMD! That's so very expensive, I just went with my Mum to send parcels from here in Wales, UK to my Blogville Furiends (they won a competition on my blog) the parcels went to USA and Australia and only cost Mum £4.00 each to post, which is cheap! I agree to try a parcel company or maybe try a different post office? Ha,Ha! Love Frank x x x x x

    1. Mom said she went everywhere today to try to figure out is all very now she is going to have to go through the box and take out most of the goodies and just send an envelope...crud!

  4. I is going to fly to you and pick them up!
