Adventures at the Post Office

Checked my PO Box for my mail today...

Got a letter addressed to the correct PO Box. Only problem is it was for the same PO Box number in Ethiopia.

Funny how that got that one mixed up.

I also received today the 2005 IKEA catalogue.

God help me.

You'll feel right at home whenever you finally make it to our apartment. We went to IKEA last week and got a dresser, nighttable, and three bookcases to go with the three IKEA bookcases, two IKEA dressers and one nighttable we already have...

Hey, the stuff is cheap and looks decent. Makes sense to me.

just thought you should know
JEDDAH (Reuters) - Three men were trampled to death in a rush to claim vouchers at the first IKEA furniture showroom in Saudi Arabia Wednesday, hospital officials said. Sixteen shoppers were injured at the Sweden-based furniture store's showroom in Jeddah. Medics revived some 20 customers who had fainted in the crush. The stampede was triggered by an offer for the first 50 shoppers to received $150 vouchers. An official at IKEA's Saudi agent said more than 70,000 people showed up at Jeddah. Hospital officials said two dead were a Pakistani and a Saudi national.

IKEA is known for simple, reasonably priced products.
