I had posted a while back about my missing accordion that had been shipped by Larry Miller on February 2nd that had never arrived. Well, after 9 long weeks, and the Office of the Inspector General of the United States Post Office having given up on ever finding it... it arrived at my office today! Looks like the box went to hell and back, but thankfully the contents were unharmed. Of course I am thrilled, and so is Mr. Miller. A very happy ending. I took the box in to my local Post Office today to see if they could find any clues as to where it had gone and after inspecting the box, they have no idea... if only that box could talk...
Maybe its been hanging by some packing tape from the back of a USPS truck all the way from LA to CA.
Post a photo.
What a ordeal, glad it all turn out for you... Man I would be making up for lost time, strap that box on and start jamming.....
Saanen...thank you for the extended use of your Larry Miller...it played just a couple of dances and was a joy to have on the tour...
This was the "Gone Postal" tour, right?
What great news.
Down in DC the post office has a big annual "lost /non-deliverable" auction for giant hampers of stuff that never made it anywhere.
I thought we would be hearing from someone who got your accordian that way and trying to figure out what it was worth.
Look carefully at any stamping done on the box--- it may tell you more of the story.
Maybe they thought "CA" at the end of the address meant Canada.
Congratulations Saanen. I think with all this traveling, your box is ready to sing the blues. Being delivered from Louisiana to California, I'm suspecting something funny around Roswell, NM. Yep, alien abduction all the way. Quick, call the Weekly World News.

Ok, now I'm getting a little scared.
Nine weeks!! NINE WEEKS!!
I'm glad it arrived in one piece!
As a boy, I recall ordering a "Learn to Play Guitar"
lesson in the mail.
It never did show up, but oddly enough my mailman
became a great guitarist!
