USPS and the Taxes, Smoke Alarm Batteries

This post is so I remember stuff and can find the dates later.  

May 22 our 2022 tax return made it to the IRS in Cincinnati, after 38 days, and four round trips between Spokane and Cincinnati.

Apparently an incorrectly placed bar code sticker was triggering Cincinnati to mail the envelope back to Spokane.  I guess someone in in Cincinnati saw it and took the bar code off the envelope so it could continue on its way.  That saga is over - finally.

We changed the smoke alarm batteries yesterday and today.

Here's a lovely photo of a recent evening sky.

That's it!  That's all I've got.


  1. So human intervention corrected computer automated reaction. Good !
    Nice sky

  2. Well, thank goodness THAT's over!

  3. Well, that's some good news finally. If the package could talk, it would have quite the tale to tell.

  4. So it took a person to recognize a wrong number (or two) in a bar code, and correct it.
