Re: priority mail shipping-record
I once sent fish to Kerrville, TX by priority mail. In a mere eleven days
the package was delivered and the fish were all alive. The record, however,
is much longer. A good friend and neighbor once left fish in a bag for more
than a month. He claims extenuating circumstances. The time frame has
changed over the years, but originally I believe it was only a month.
