Who doesn’t like to get mail? I’m not talking about bills, solicitations, or political flyers. I’m talking about good old-fashioned, correspondence from person A to person B. The only thing better than real mail in your mailbox is getting mail from a long way off in your mailbox. Today, I got a package from Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland in the mail, and it made my day!
The white padded envelope that arrived today had no return label, but I noticed a familiar logo on the postage label.
A few weeks ago I had sent a request through Radio Kerry’s website to try to get a few Radio Kerry stickers, so Emily could decorate her Hydroflask. I also let them know that if they sent me some extra stickers, I would be sure to sneak them onto a few friends’ (from Ireland, but not Kerry men) trucks without their knowledge. Not really expecting an answer, I was surprised to get a response almost immediately from the station. Their staff emailed me back and let me know that they would gladly send some stickers my way.
The package included a whole bunch of Radio Kerry swag, including balloons, pens, a car air freshener, and of course, the stickers.
A very big mahalo or go raibh maith agat (thank you) to all the staff at Radio Kerry that sent all this fun stuff to us on Maui! The aloha will be reciprocated when we visit Ireland again…hopefully sooner than later. Also, a warning to any Cork men or Tipperary men I may see in the near future…watch your truck windows…they may have a new decoration any day now.
You can listen to Radio Kerry online on via their website, but to make it even more convenient, search for the Radio Kerry app in the app store. I also posted a blog about the app here if you are interested.
